Bewitching the Pomerania is the second EP by Polish extreme metal band Behemoth. It was released in 1997 by Solistitium Records. It was recorded at P.J. Studios, February 1997 and mastered at Vox Mortiis Studio.[2] The EP was the first release of the band, on which Zbigniew Robert "Inferno" Promiński, who has been a member of the band until today, played the drums. Bewitching the Pomerania also marks the band's passage from black metal music to a style more similar to death metal.

Bewitching the Pomerania is also the first release to showcase Behemoth's new logo from the Old English text to its present form.

On Behemoth's official webpage Nergal stated that the artwork for Bewitching the Pomerania is "by far the worst Behemoth artwork of all time".[citation needed]
