The Satanist has now been in stores for a week, and has been working its way through my brain for two weeks now. The verdict? I like the new Behemoth. I do. It’s swell.
And lots of other folks feel the same way. Nearly 10,000 in the U.S., to be precise.
The Satanist debuted on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart at #34, with sales clocking in at just under 10K.
Not bad for a black metal record.
Nice work, Nuclear Blast.
