Behemoth is the first Polish band to issue a non-exchangeable token (NFT), which will be linked to Rowan E. Cassidy’s rights to work.
Behemoth has its token
Behemoth announced yesterday that it will continue collaborating with artist Rowan E. Cassidy. It is about the NFT series entitled Seven Seals. The issue and the auction are related to the seventh anniversary of the release of the band’s groundbreaking album “The Satanist”.
Each NFT consists of a looped animation with sounds from the album “The Satanist”. The sound layer of the animation was prepared by Behemoth’s bass player, Tomasz “Orion” Wróblewski.
However, this is not the end of attractions. In addition, the winner of the auction where tokens can be purchased will receive an original, limited print of the poster entitled “Master” signed jointly by the musicians of the band and Cassidy.
Team commented idea:
When Rowan approached us with an idea, we were excited to bring our works to a whole new format that is linked to perpetual ownership, [Rowan] challenged Orion to create something truly unique that will document our entry into the digital art space.
The NFT auction will start today at 20:00. BST / 21:00 CEST / 12:00 PDT.
It’s not the first time Behemoth shows its fans that it can be a pioneer. Today it becomes a token issuer as the first team from Poland.
However, the group became famous primarily for the fact that, as one of the first, it gained international popularity. alongside such metal stars as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica and Slayer.
Behemoth, however, is not the first metal band to decide to broadcast NFT. Recently, the Megadeth group decided to take a similar step, which we wrote about here. The musicians aired a theme called “Vic Rattlehead: Genesis”, which features the band’s logo and their iconic mascot spinning in opposite directions for six seconds.
In turn, Slipknot member M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan sold his first NFT in early April. It was about a photo of the original Knotfest’s Electric Theater logo, where insects fly out … from his mouth.
The leader of Kiss is also a fan of cryptocurrencies. Gene Simmons, because we are talking about him, in February this year boasted on Twitter that he was investing in Cardano. Earlier, he also spoke positively about BTC.
