No, not this one...

Polish Black Metal Satanic masters Behemoth are stirring again and yesterday, Saturday 11th February 2017, they posted an image on their Official Facebook post that has provoked an amazing reaction from their fanbase.

The image was accompanied by the words: "Things are happening..." and speculation is now rife that the announcemenet of a new album is imminent although the picture could have another meaning. Here it is, in all it's glory.

Comment from Behemoth fans ranged massively and here's a selection of ones that stood out for us from the 645 posted so far:

"Could easily open a beer between granny's chin and her nose."
Ariel Mserious

"Everyone on here talking about no longer being hungry, I'm over here getting more hungry."
Jason Ross

"I have the weirdest boner from this."
Joe Red-Beard Jackson

"Pretty sure this is album art for the new Behemoth. Attention getting, yet tasteful and elegant."
Nic Iraci

"You disgust me, please continue."
Brandon Russell

"Well looks like I lost my appetite. Thanks Behemoth."
Richard Thompson

"Nergal you fucking asshole I was fucking eating."
Brandon Headhunter Miller

"Cool art - thanks to put one of the only wet that represent the fucking truth about giving birth! This kind of paintings are really rare because it was almost forbidden to paint pregnant woman during a long time (exept the immaculate conception). So thanks to showing that kind of art! That almost a feminist action. Thanks!"
Tikal Laurie Tarasco

Incidentally, at the time of writing, the image had a very interesting amount of shares.

Behemoth's last album, 2014s 'The Satanist', recorded and released shortly after frontman Nergal had recovered from a near fatal bout of leukemia, was a massive success and is rightly hailed as a Black Metal masterpiece.

Behemoth played it in it's entirety at last year's Bloodstock festival during what was an absolutely spellbinding performance. During that performance, MetalTalk photographer Sean Cameron accidentally captured the ultimate shot of Nergal, who looks like he has been impaled by a crucifix. Here it is.

You can find out about the rest of Behemoth's only 2016 UK appearance right here.

Behemoth feature in 'The Jesus Christ Edition' of Steve Göldby Talks Metal on MetalTalk Radio On TotalRock this Wednesday, 15th February at 4.00pm UK time. You can listen right here and if you miss it, it will be on our On Demand page right here any time after 6.00pm Wednesday.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
