The North American debut of Evangelion – the ninth studio release from Poland’s premier devil-metal band, Behemoth – is nearly upon us, but you don’t have to wait any longer to hear it. The band is streaming the entire album from their MySpace this week, and I can tell you it’s a certified face-melter. There’s also a new video coming soon to promote the first single Ov Fire and the Void, and to tide you over we’ve got a trailer for the vid right here!
Evangelion will hit North American stores next Tuesday in the form of a sweet deluxe digipak from Metal Blade Records, featuring a behind-the-scenes DVD comprised of footage from all of their studio sessions between January and May of this year – excerpts of which the band has previously posted on various promo sites.
Behemoth will also be promoting the album while touring with the Rockstar Mayhem festival through mid-August – along with Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Cannibal Corpse and many more extreme-music icons. You can view the complete tour schedule while snappin’ yer neck to the album stream on MySpace, but before you go, check out the trailer for Ov Fire and the Void right here (the full version is coming soon).
