BEHEMOTH have set Evangelion as the title of their 9th full-length studio album due out this summer. Evangelion marks the follow up to the bands extremely successful 2007 release The Apostasy; a release which saw BEHEMOTH acquire the supporting slot to second stage headliners HATEBREED on Ozzfest, followed by a co-headlining tour with JOB FOR A COWBOY and another North American tour as direct support to DIMMU BORGIR.
Frontman Nergal comments: “I’ve had this title in my head for almost a year now and it grew on me. It sounds nothing but powerful and epic which perfectly mirrors the essence of the new album. Evangelion comes from a Greek word ‘Spreading the word of God’ or ‘spreading the good news’…oh well, you already know that we love to play with the meanings and symbolism. We’re here to show you our interpretation of what Evangelion really is.”
As previously reported, BEHEMOTH will be participating in this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. BEHEMOTH will be on the Hot Topic stage alongside CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, and more.
