Polish extreme metallers Behemoth are teasing new music and visuals, perhaps for a livestream or home video release across their socials. The band offered fans a new mailing list sign up, which offers fans an early look at the teaser that now went to their social networks.

The band released a new EP, A Forest, digitally worldwide (with additional physical copies available for purchase) via Metal Blade earlier this year. It was their first new music (aside from a live album tour edition) since their acclaimed release, I Loved You At Your Darkest in 2018.
