It wasn’t too long ago that Behemoth was last in the United States, touring with Tribulation, Aeon, and Cannibal Corpse. In the past, the band has promised to play their most recent album ‘The Satanist’ in full for their American fans. Now the band is about to make good on that promise.

Additionally, the band will also be travelling with a special art exhibit called “The Congregation,” a special collaboration between Behemoth and Toxic Vision clothing. Here’s what to expect according to Metal Injection:
Over the years, the artist behind Toxic Vision (Sharon Toxic) has worked closely with the band to create their stage outfits, music videos, stage/photo props and more. “The Congregation” is a new experience and built solely for this tour.
Behemoth front-man Nergal comments: “We’ve always pushed ourselves very hard trying to reach the highest peaks of artistic creativity. This time around we are not only coming back to perform ‘The Satanist’ in its entirety, but are also bringing along a collaboration that’s unheard of! Toxic Vision’s renowned and absolutely brilliant artist and designer from Canada, whom we have worked with on several projects in the past (Behemoth stage gear, video clip costumes…) will be accompanying us on this trek with a unique exhibition called ‘The Congregation’! We are beyond excited to see how these synergies co-exist! Sharon, it’s an honour to welcome you on board!”
Adds Toxic Vision CEO Sharon Toxic: “It is a real honour to work alongside Behemoth and have this opportunity to bring a vision to life! We aim to dazzle and inspire, I am inviting everyone to step into the dark world of ‘The Congregation’ – an exclusive showcase of my work with Behemoth. Nothing like this has been done before, and of course, nothing is really as it seems with Toxic Vision. This is a culmination of craft and magic…once you step inside, you might never find your way out.”
‘The Satanist’ was released in 2014, and is the lead singer Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski’s latest album after his battle with leukemia. It has received numerous critical acclaims from various metal publications, and was voted number one album of 2014 by Loudwire.
