Polish metal outfit Behemoth entered the studio this week to begin tracking their new album, "The Apostasy." The new effort will be recorded in the band's hometown with engineer Arkadiusz "Malta" Malczewski. Nergal (vocals, guitars) comments:

"We just demoed the whole new album and have 11 songs plus intro ready to go. It all sounds huge and our sound has never been this intense, while being very epic and catchy at the same time. It has all the Behemoth trademarks enriched with some fresh ideas. I guarantee some people are going to be surprised!

"Some song titles include: 'Prometherion,' 'Pazuzu (The Desert Storms Bringing),' 'Slaying The Prophets Ov Isa,' 'Rome 64 E.V.', 'Arcana Hereticae','At The Left Hand Ov God' with more to follow. The recording sessions for The Apostasy will take place in our hometown, Gdansk, in one of the best-equipped studios in Poland, Radio Gdansk. It has an old-school analogue Studer 24-track machine, which gives super unique tone to drum sound. I simply love it. It has the best mixing console, pre-amps and other shit available nowadays. It's no secret that BEHEMOTH have been one of the busiest bands in the scene for last two years. We completed over 300 shows in support to our last record, Demigod, and have been in front of people's faces for a long time, so I felt that it was necessary to take a break. I thought that all of this activity might be too much, even for die-hard fans. I decided to focus on song writing and nothing else. I pretty much isolated myself from the whole scene for a few months and ultimately created a new record that is destined to become the definitive Behemoth release."

The new album is expected to surface in early-2007 through Century Media Records.
