“Legions! Our new EP “A Forest” releases May 29th including the title track featuring Niklas Kvarforth of Shining! Covering music outside of metal is a challenge – covering legendary music is an even greater challenge…that is what drove us throughout this process.
The EP contains two brand-new Behemoth songs, “Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha” and “Evoe”. The tracks act as a continuation on from ILYAYD – no more, no less. We hope this brings some respite for anyone struggling during these strange times on our planet! Stay safe, stay positive, Hail Satan!”

“It was a band decision when we were on tour in Europe and we met up with our awesome label and they suggested a 7” release. Eric Morgan suggested The Cure‘s ‘Prayers For Rain‘ and Johnny Kelly suggested Three Dog Night‘s ‘One‘ I thought they were great choices, a nice contrast of style and we nailed it in the recording process.”
