Behemoth – Opvs Contra Natvram

Nergal, the controversial frontman for black/death mainstays Behemoth is basically that kid in school who everybody thinks is kind of aloof, doesn’t talk to anyone, and people somehow like. That is until he gets his license, drives by you in his new convertible his parents bought him with the top down, hair flowing, listening to […]

Behemoth – A Forest EP

Well, imagine my surprise when I was perusing the promos and found a new release from one of my most favorite bands, Behemoth. It’s not a new full length, unfortunately, but an EP titled A Forest, which has two versions of the song by the same title originally recorded by The Cure. There’s a recorded […]

Behemoth – I Loved You at Your Darkest

Behemoth – noun: a huge or monstrous creature, something enormous; especially a big and powerful organization.  The definition of that word is also apt for the band Behemoth, who are arguably the best blackened death metal band on the planet.  Or one of the best metal bands period.  I can say for me personally, they’re […]

Behemoth – The Satanist

The Satanist is a tale of redemption, of perseverance.  Not solely for Nergal and Behemoth, but for this author as well.  I’ll go ahead and get the fact that I’ve been an absolute unflinching Behemoth fanboy for well over a decade now.  I love everything, the early black metal days, the masterfully blackened Grom, the […]

Decibel Magazine Tour: Behemoth, Watain, The Devil’s Blood, In Solitude

“Are you ready for some black metal?,” the guy in line ahead of me growled to his buddy. I didn’t step in to correct them, choosing not to be ‘that guy,’ but technically there was only one black metal band on tonight’s bill: Watain. The rest, all blackish, either by association or subject matter. Devil’s in the details.

BEHEMOTH’s Nergal answers back to the overwhelming response of those offering to set up benefits in the vocalists honor

Singer’s main goal is to raise awareness and get people involved by registering to be a bone marrow donor Since news on Nergal’s recent health issues has been released, the band, management, and label has received an overwhelming response from fans and bands all over the world asking how they can directly help Nergal. In […]

Behemoth – Evangelion

I’ve kind of dreaded writing this review ever since I gave Evangelion a few spins. Seeing as Behemoth has reached Dismember, Bolt Thrower, Suffocation and Grave levels of consistency and quality, they have arguably surpassed Vader as Poland’s premier metal export and almost certainly should be considered death metal royalty at this point in their […]


Behemoth will release their newest album Evangelion on August 7 via Nuclear Blast in Europe and August 11 via Metal Blade in US. Check out the cover artwork! “Evangelion combines a pure art form with a direct message. It was also important for us to ensure that the graphical presentation did justice to the record. […]

Behemoth – Ezkaton EP

While I’m sure it’s been by their own choice and almost certainly in their best financial interest, Behemoth have had a bit of a nasty habit of jumping into bed with a different record company every other release they’ve notched on their belt over the years. To usher in their new business relationship with the […]

Behemoth – The Apostasy

Someone at Century Media has some balls releasing Behemoth’s newest opus on the same day as Nile’s Ithyphallic, especially considering Nile started to surface as a reference for Behemoth’s last, slightly disappointing effort, Demigod. Well, Century Media must have known what they had here-an album that better than Demigod as almost as good as the […]

Winterdemons – The Darkest Storm

White faces scowling out of the darkness, an indecipherable logo, songs about darkness, night, cold, winter, storms, mist, and one called Immortal can mean only one thing. True Norwegian Black Metal comes to Greece. Winterdemons is a new band formed in 2003 in Greece based upon the premise that Immortal did it right back in […]

Behemoth – Demigod

Rewarded for the widespread acclaim of Zos Kia Cultus, Poland’s Behemoth were promoted from Olympic Records to the big daddy, Century Media and also arguably surpassed Vader as Poland’s most important extreme export. So how do you follow that kind of success up? You don’t. You merely deliver what’s expected and continue with the sound […]

Behemoth – Zos Kia Cultus (Here and Beyond)

Behemoth’s gradual transition from cult black metal to world-class death metal outfit is not characterized by one album, but through the maturation of four. Unlike many Polish bashers (Decapitated, Hate, etc.) where Vader is the primary inspirational source, Behemoth, mining the strengths of Morbid Angel, Slayer and recently Nile, forge a high-energy, strikingly confident style […]
