Behemoth’s “Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v.” Tour Rocks The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland

Behemoth’s “Ecclesia Diabolica America 2018 e.v.” tour came to the Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland. The longtime metal band has been bringing audiences their provocative and intense metal for close to 30 years. The night started with a small group of fans arriving early and were treated to a private sound check which has been appearing on the band’s social media.

The soundcheck event allowed two fans take the stage with the band and show off their talented vocals. Behemoth has set the bar for these meets and greets. Most other pre-show meet and greet events usually end up in a quick hello and some merch from a band. Behemoth’s version shows how much their fans truly mean to them. The tour was supported by two other metal acts in Wolves in the Throne Room and At the Gates.

Behemoth hit the stage at approximately 9:30 and put on an incredible show that displayed just what a 30-year catalog will get you. Due to this show being in a club venue, the ability for pyrotechnics was not possible but was instead was replaced with high powered fog cannons that delivered a similar effect. The show was something that any metal fan should not miss out on and luckily there are plenty of remaining tour dates that can be found below. One of the best things about Behemoth has to be their insightful and clearly researched lyrics. The band’s front man, Nergal, who has had an interesting history with his native country’s government which is heavily influenced by religion, uses those past experiences and his clear knowledge of the subject to craft some of the most compelling songs in the metal scene.

Overall, Behemoth is only improving on their catalog and will definitely have more material to come.
