Last Saturday, I spent my weekend in Los Angeles and I was pleased to be shooting at the House of Blues for the Metal Alliance Tour. This year, the line up was insane: Black Crown Initiate, Inquisition, 1349, Goatwhore and Behemoth, who are back in the U.S. after a series of unfortunate events that right now are just another reason to keep the band going stronger than ever.
One thing about Behemoth is that they will throw the best show you’ll ever see in your entire life; from beginning to end, the crowd went crazy, and the band… they were beyond perfect on every song played. I remember the first time I caught them live in El Paso, TX, 7 years ago – they were extremely insane, but now they are so intense, very pure, and of course, the five years of waiting were totally worth it. Behemoth’s new album is an elegant masterpiece of heavy and extreme music by the name of The Satanist. A faultless album with a more organic and evolved sound of what Behemoth had done before. It’s a very interesting new sound from the band.
This is absolutely the year of Satan.
