Polish extreme metal veterans Behemoth will release a new EP titled A Forest on May 29 through Metal Blade Records. Its title track is a cover of The Cure's 1980 classic and features Niklas Kvarforth of Shining. A Claudio Marino-directed music video for the cover can be viewed below. A Forest also includes a live version of the aforementioned song in addition to two previously unreleased Behemoth tracks recorded during sessions for their latest album, I Loved You at Your Darkest. Behemoth comment: "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!"
