Last Friday, Polish extreme metal overlords BEHEMOTH celebrated the release of their new album, Opvs Contra Natvram, basking in critical acclaim from media, fans and tastemakers all over the world. Today, the band crowns their 30+ year career’s most recent milestone with a new video that perfectly reflects the dark, menacing atmosphere created by the album’s closing track, Versvs Christvs – a riveting piece of work, featuring piano and clean vocals.
BEHEMOTH’s leader and artistic alchemist, Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski, informs:
“Legions! Thank you for the amazing response to the new record! Wow! It feels extremely validating and liberating to have you with us. And now we present the crown jewel, Versvs Christvs. This video was our first time working the amazing director Agata Alexander, an LA dwelling Pole whose vision and execution created this spectacular result. A special shout-out to our friends at Grupa 13 who assisted on the production. Feast your eyes on this, Legions!”
The band’s 12th studio collection is a stark reminder of the rebellion, individuality and unflinching self-expression that BEHEMOTH’s phenomenal work inbues, shaped by a literary worldview. It also reflects a musical evolution, as there’s little doubt that Opvs Contra Natvram is BEHEMOTH’s strongest and most sophisticated musical collection to date.
