Extreme metal band formed in 1991 in Gdańsk, Poland.
Began as a Black Metal band and transitioned into a Death Metal band.
It was in 1991 that Behemoth was formed (initially as Baphometh) by frontman Nergal (Holocausto at that time). They released a few demos, "Endless Damnation" (1992), "The Return Of The Northern Moon" (1993) and "From The Pagan Vastlands" (1993). "From The Pagan Vastlands" being the demo that really showed what they wanted. They signed with an Italian company called Entropy Rec., and released their debut mini-album entitled "And the forests dream eternally" in 1994. A year later they recorded their first full-length "Sventevith (storming near the Baltic)". The album gave them the attention they wanted and they got a deal with the German Solistitium Rec., where they also recorded and released their second album "Grom," a very experimental album, which included female vocals, synths and acoustic guitar. They also finally did a European tour where they gained stage experience and a good reputation.
