Behemoth (1991-present): a Black Metal band from Poland.


ormed in 1991 by Nergal, who through many lineup changes would be the one constant in the band, Behemoth would prove to be one of the better death/black metal bands from Poland. Their early work was in the black metal arena, forging a style that really wasn't radically different from anyone else. The From The Pagan Vastlands (1993) boasted a three-piece band, while And The Forests Dream Eternally (1994), the debut, was basically a solo affair for Nergal. Sventevith (Storming Near The Baltic)(1995) saw Baal Ravenlock join on drums while Les joined on guitar for Grom (1996). Inferno took over drums on the Bewitching The Pomerania(1997) EP and Pandemonic Incantations (1998) that saw Mefisto take over bass.

Satanica (1999) was a turning point of sorts for the band when their black metal desires changed to a more death metal like structure. L. Kaos assumed guitars for the production. Havoc took over the vacant guitar slot with Novy (ex-Des Irae/ex-Vader) taking over on bass for 2000s Thelema.6, an album many considered a flawless merging of Death and black metal that was followed by the Historica box set (2000), Zos Kia Cultus - Here And Beyond (2002), Conjuration (2003), Crush.Fukk.Create - Requiem for Generation ArmageddonDVD (2004) and Demigod (2004).
