Polish extreme metalers Behemoth have set "Evangelion" as the title of their 9th full length studio album due out this summer. "Evangelion" marks the follow up to the bands extremely successful 2007 release "The Apostasy"; a release which saw Behemoth acquire the supporting slot to second stage headliners Hatebreed on Ozzfest which also featured Lamb Of God, Lordi, and Nile just to name a few.

Following Ozzfest, Behemoth co-headlined the Radio Rebellion Tour with Job For A Cowboy with support from Gojira and Beneath The Massacre with the band's final North American tour being a direct support slot to Norwegian legends, Dimmu Borgir. After a short break for writing, Behemoth entered Radio Gdansk in Poland to begin recording. "Evangelion" see's Behemoth, Daniel Bergstrand and Woytek and Slawek Wieslawscy as producers with Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Napalm Death, Carcass) set to mix the album.

Here's what frontman Nergal has to say; "I've had this title in my head for almost a year now and it grew on me. It sounds nothing but powerful and epic which perfectly mirrors the essence of the new album. "Evangelion" comes from a Greek word "Spreading the word of God" or "spreading the good news" ...oh well, you already know that we love to play with the meanings and symbolism. We're here to show you our interpretation of what "Evangelion" really is."

Details on "Evangelion"'s packaging, artwork, track listing, and pre-orders will be announced over the coming months so be sure to keep an eye on the band's sites and Metal Blade (US) and Nuclear Blast's (Europe) sites for further information.

Nice. Can't wait. The Apostasy was brilliant.

Can't wait to see what they have in store this time. Great name too, Evangelion.

Great name, they have told that this album will be more brutal and technical. We'll see...

Mehh, the album title sounds like a play on words to me. Like Evangelist and Religion combined. But oh'well, cant wait for the album anyways.

Yep, I agree.
But still I can't wait for the album, or at least the exact dates when it will be released... and of course I hope it'll be good.

Deadmeat - 17.04.2009 at 14:14  
Hehe!!!!! funny name. i amfrom greece and i really think that this title does NOT fit in a death metal album except Behemoth start writing lyrics like Deicide!!! if not, this title fits better to a White metal album!!!
vo1d - 17.04.2009 at 23:57  
Sweet!
Somehing to look forward to
BreadGod - 18.04.2009 at 00:21  
The title of the album doesn't matter to me. I just wonder if it will be as good as "The Apostasy".
wormdrink414 - 18.04.2009 at 01:33  
Nergal has said that he is more excited for this album than he was for The Apostasy. Behemoth seems to improve with age.
ThunderAxe1989 - 18.04.2009 at 02:29  
Cool name, I'm sure the album will have a great message. But I didn't like "The Apostasy" that much......I have a feeling that "Evangelion" is ga be just like it

I haven't been blown away since "Demigod".....now THAT is a release to die for!
Powaga - 18.04.2009 at 05:26  
Too sad the translation of Evangelion isn't exactly what he said. In ancient greek, "ev" is actually "eu" and means "well". And "angelion" is "aggelos" which means "message". So, Evangelion would be more like "good messsage".
Nevertheless I am looking forward for this new album since the last two were outstanding!
Number Juan - 19.04.2009 at 00:26  
I think Nergal meant to use Evangelion because it basically means what people usually translate to"Good News".

Feels like being raped by Orion or some random br00tal monster 24/7.

Emperor IX - 19.04.2009 at 05:29  
Cant wait.
In greek, Evangelion also means the actual bible itself and the readings from it usually in church...cant wait to see behemoths spin on this one.
Judas - 22.04.2009 at 16:01  
For the umpteenth time, "can't wait".
