In related news, BEHEMOTH is currently damning stages throughout North America on a mammoth co-headlining tour with legendary death metal practitioners/labelmates, Cannibal Corpse. The month-long takeover continues to march its way across the country and will trample through nearly three-dozen cities upon its conclusion on March 7th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Support comes from two of Sweden's finest metal exports: Aeon and Tribulation. Reports The Dallas Observer of the band's set, "BEHEMOTH's credo is the power of the will, and it completely permeates their live show... On a starkly lit stage filled with cast-iron ritualistic symbols, vocalist and guitarist Nergal lurched around with the ease of a seasoned performer. He held the audience in his hand, and his performance alone made it plain why BEHEMOTH's live show is so renowned."
