BEHEMOTH has tapped Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Napalm Death, Carcass) to mix their new, as of yet untitled album due out late summer 2009. The CD is now being recorded in Radio Gdansk in Poland with BEHEMOTH, Daniel Bergstrand and Woytek, and Slawek Wieslawscy as producers.
BEHEMOTH’s main man Nergal said in the press release: â€œI’m beyond excited about this new album. It’s not just the finest piece of music we’ve ever made, but it’s also the most mature tunes we’ve created without compromising our sound. I’m stoked about Colin Richardson involvement in the mix of the record. We’ve tried to book him for our last album The Apostasy, but due to busy schedule he wasn’t available then. He’s name needs no introduction. I have absolutely no doubts that Colin will deliver and I’m expecting new album to have the sound that’s bigger than life!â€
Commented Colin: â€œNergal has sent me three songs which are guitars/bass/drums live from the rehearsal room and the material sounds fantastic already. I am really looking forward to mixing this album. It’s going to be great mixing an extreme heavy band again, especially as it’s the mighty Behemoth.â€
In other news, BEHEMOTH’s Orion, Seth and Nergal will take part in a signing session at the ESP booth on April 4 at the Musikmesse Frankfurt 2009 fair in Frankfurt, Germany. Signing will take place at 3.15 pm. For more information go HERE.
