Behemoth start work on Satanist follow-up
Behemoth frontman Nergal says he's making progress on new album
Behemoth frontman Adam 'Nergal' Darski has revealed he's started work on the band's next album.
The singer said in January that he has been inspired by the "avant-garde" when writing the follow-up to 2014's The Satanist, adding that it would be a "new chapter" for the band and redefine their music.
Now he says in an Instagram post that he's playing "dark stuff" on his Gretsch White Falcon guitar.
He says: "Well, It has begun. The process. New music for Behemoth. Interesting to hear how the dark stuff sounds when played on White Falcon. It kinda gets me on a different track and I'm liking it a lot."
Darski also said he expected the new material to have post-punk influences.
