Behemoth Working With Famed Producer + More News
Behemoth are reportedly working with uber producer Ross Robinson, who is perhaps best known for his work on nu metal releases by the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit back in the day. "The day" being the late 1990s and early '00s. He also worked with Glassjaw and At the Drive-In, so his resume is much more extensive and dynamic than his most-discussed work.
The rumors of this partnership arose as a result of a Facebook photo posted by the Polish post-back metal band's frontman Nergal on Facebook, as well as a series of tweets issued by Robinson where he mentioned leaving Warsaw and that he would be working on some of the most ripping metal of his life in 2013. That's hint enough, isn't it?
A Skylit Drive have dropped the lyric video for "Fallen" from their upcoming album due out in 2013. The album will be released jointly by their former label Tragic Hero and their current label Fearless. So it will be all hands on deck.
Lead vocalist Michael Jagmin of A Skylit Drive said the band is stoked about releasing the album between both labels since it offers them a "the best of both worlds" scenario. He also commented on the song, saying, "'Fallen' is about having the courage to look those who hold you back in the face, and telling them they can't bring you down any longer. It's about seeing passed all the bullshit, and fighting with every ounce you have to achieve what you want. It's the ultimate anthem for anyone and everyone that has a dream."
DevilDriver have been confirmed for a slot at the Wacken Open Air Festival for 2013. The event takes place in Germany in August.

It's a busy time for the frontman! [Brave Words]
