On March 6th, Metal Blade Records will unleash "Behemoth: Devil's Conquistadors". A definitive BEHEMOTH biography penned by Lukasz Dunaj, the stunning 490-page, hardcover tome takes an in-depth look at the history of the events that materially influenced the band, their music, their ultimate rise to the upper echelon of metal and becoming a household name in their native homeland of Poland. In addition to the author's narrative, the book includes quotes and anecdotes from current and former BEHEMOTH members as well as interviews with Tomas Krajewski, Rob Darken, Graal, Havok, old photos of the band, flyers, lyric sheets and so much more. In the foreword by Krzysztof Azarewicz (Polish poet, writer, occultist and longtime lyric co-writer): "If, as a cultural anthropologist, I were to point to a single cosmic force which BEHEMOTH's music expresses, I would name it not Satan but Dionysus. A deity that represents not only the intoxicating influence of cosmic energies and earthly benefits, but also their benevolent healing properties. A deity of strength and pride. A deity of creative might."
In advance of its release, today Revolver Magazine offers up
