And the Forests Dream Eternally is the debut EP by Polish extreme metal band Behemoth. It was released in August 1994, through Italian label Enthopy Records.

The EP was recorded in July 1994 in Warrior Studio.

"Pure Evil and Hate" is a tribute to Bathory. It is one of the band's most popular songs[citation needed] and is often a closer for live performances.[citation needed]

The EP was re-released in 1997 by Last Episode Records in a split with Forbidden Spaces by Polish black metal band Damnation. It was re-issued again in 2005, with the tracks from another Behemoth EP, Bewitching the Pomerania, as bonus tracks.
