With the release of their new LP last Friday, Behemoth are gearing up for their return to stages across the EU and UK with the release of ‘Versvs Christvs’ single/video.

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!

Check out our vinyl opening video below:

The band’s 12th studio collection is a stark reminder of the rebellion, individuality and unflinching self-expression that BEHEMOTH’s phenomenal work imbues, 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.

Pick up or stream the album here and check out the video for Versvs Christvs below.

Last Thursday, BEHEMOTH unveiled a celebratory visual feast to herald the album’s arrival, titled Opvs Contra Cvltvram; a streaming event shot on the roof of Warsaw’s renowned Palace of Culture & Science.

Alongside the album release, BEHEMOTH dropped a wretched yet addictive pocket game together with Spotify, operable on mobile or desktop, that you can explore here.

Users must endeavour to keep the virtual cross balanced for as long as possible – take your eyes off the game for a second and it’s game over.
