Zbigniew Robert Promiński (born 30 December 1978 in Tczew),[2] stage name Inferno, is a Polish heavy metal musician, best known as the drummer for blackened death metal band Behemoth. He has also contributed to bands such as Azarath, Witchmaster, Damnation, Deus Mortem, Artrosis, Christ Agony and Devilyn. Also, his endorsements include Paiste cymbals, Czarcie Kopyto pedals, Pearl drums, Evans drumheads, and Pro-Mark drumsticks.[3][4][5]

Inferno joined Behemoth in 1997. He left the group briefly in 1999 during the release of Satanica, but returned in early 2000. "Slaying The Prophets ov Isa" and "Pazuzu" from The Apostasy he has reached a tempo of 270bpm in the studio.[citation needed] Shemhamforash reached 275bpm in studio. Slaves Shall Serve was 270 bpm, but at Sweden Rock Festival in 2005, he played it at around 290bpm.
