BEHEMOTH Return Home After 11 Weeks On The Road

December 14, 2005

Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH have finally returned home after completing an 11-week North American trek consisting of 54 shows in both the U.S. (as part of Blackest of the Black tour) and Canada (where they headlined). This tour marked the longest the band had ever been away from their homes.

Commented BEHEMOTH mainman Nergal: "We fuckin' did it! After doing all the U.S. dates, we headed to Canada, where NECRONOMICON joined the tour. And from day one, the whole tour has been a real battle, I can tell you the Canadian weather, especially in these month,s is really friendly. There were places where we had to load in and out in –20 Celsius. Most of the 'venues' were small shitty bars with no real P.A., no backstage, no lighting system. Simply nothing. That's what we used to call the Spartan way, ha ha. But then, pretty much EVERYWHERE people were simply awesome and their endless support and dedication paid off even the harshest conditions! I'm proud. We succeeded. We fuckin' went there, played 26 shows, froze our asses to ice but we fuckin' did it! I hope you crazy fucks appreciate this effort and had at least as much fun as we had, ha ha.

"We'd like to thank our agents, First Row and BCI for putting this tour together, Century Media for making it feel like at home, dudes from NECRONOMICON for all the fun and help, and last but not least, ALL the people who showed up and paid their heavy duty! Keep it up!"
