Behemoth win album of the year at Polish Grammies

Polish death metal masters Behemoth received an award for “Album of the Year” at this year’s Frederyk Awards, Poland’s equivalent to the Grammies. Following a high profile lawsuit and several years of religious outcry, the band were nominated for 5 awards including “Video of the Year”, “Band of the Year” and “Best Album Artwork”.

“Evangelion definitely made a statement,” said vocalist Nergal. “We couldn’t be more proud of this record.”

The awards, held on April 19 in Warsaw recognised new album Evangelion as a serious musical opus, a triumph for Behemoth in their native country. Polish Catholics were probably upset.
