Behemoth – Santander Arena – Reading, PA – 6/4/18

At the beginning of 2018 the metal powerhouse band known as Slayer announced their final farewell tour.  Not only was this a blow to the fans, but also the music community as a whole.  Slayer, one of the most influential metal bands, would spend the entire year of 2018 touring globally as a way to say thank you to all their fans.  However, Slayer wasn’t going to say goodbye without a stacked lineup for their going away tour.  For the first leg, Slayer would bring along Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Testament, and Behemoth.  Each band brings something different to the tour, but they all have the same influence, Slayer.  Second on the bill for the tour was Poland’s Behemoth.  Out of all the bands on the tour, including Slayer, Behemoth put on the most theatrical show along with the most energetic.  Performing for about 45 minutes, Behemoth played a six song set including “O Father O Satan O Sun!” and “Chant for Eschaton 2000” with singer Adam Darski rounded up the crowd in between each song.  Even though this was Slayer’s headlining tour, Behemoth could’ve closed the night due to the energy they brought and the reaction from the crowd.  It is shown that even though Slayer is saying farewell, their influence will live on in Behemoth and they still have many more years to go before they say farewell.
