Poland’s blackened death metallers, BEHEMOTH, have been added to this summer’s Ozzfest’s second stage, joining second stage headliners HATEBREED. Vocalist/guitarist, Nergal, commented on their participation:
“I couldn’t be more proud about the fact that BEHEMOTH will be joining this year’s Ozzfest! I’m speechless and beyond excited. No doubt it’s going to be the brightest point of our career thus far, and I hope that this will help to spread dangerous and extreme music among the masses.
“It’s an honor to team up with our longtime brothers in NILE and to share the stage with LAMB OF GOD and HATEBREED, not to mention the legend himself! With such a bill, you can expect nothing but pure metal carnage! What makes me even more excited is the little fact that we will be releasing our new album during the tour. So expect songs from The Apostasy, as well as some older shit. We’ll definitely make sure the set is going to be brutal as fuck. You’ve been warned!”
Other extreme metal bands have been added to the second stage as rotating acts, including Taiwanese symphonic black metallers CHTHONIC and Atlanta, Georgia’s DAATH.
