Behemoth have announced their new EP A Forest, due for release on 29th May through New Aeon Musick via The Orchard.
The EP’s title-track, A Forest, is Behemoth‘s interpretation of The Cure‘s classic, featuring guest vocals from Shining (SE)‘s Niklas Kvarforth. The band have released a video for the track, which sees Kvarforth accompany frontman Nergal.
“Covering music outside of metal is a challenge – covering legendary music is an even greater challenge…that is what drove us throughout this process. A lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail; subjectively, I love the outcome and it ranks amongst my favourite Behemoth covers alongside Killing Joke’s Total Invasion and Siekiera’s Ludzie Wschodu,” Nergal comments. “For the second time in 2020, I’ve recruited Niklas Kvarforth from Shining. Niklas’ psychotic appearance, attitude and vibe was a key element to our representation of the music and the only man who could give the performance the same depth as the original.”
“On top of this, the A Forest EP contains two brand-new Behemoth songs, Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha and Evoe,” he adds. “The tracks act as a continuation on from [current album] I Loved You At Your Darkest – 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!”
