Behemoth have set the bar pretty high with their previous studio release ‘The Satanist‘ and now all eyes are turning towards ‘I Loved You At Your Darkest‘ which gets a global release on Friday, October 5th.
BEHEMOTH mastermind Nergal comments: “Bartzabel is a song that came in the midst of a BEHEMOTH rehearsal… We had no structure, no vision – but piece by piece it came to be and we were extremely excited by the result.
Check out the video below;
To us, it’s the eye of the ILYAYD storm: sonically calmer and slower than anything else on the record, but definitely one of the darkest! Lyrically, we (myself and Krzysztof Azarewicz) were inspired by Aleister Crowley’s conjuration of the Spirit of Mars – which the video, by our trusted friends in Grupa 13, depicts beautifully…I may even go as far to say that it’s my favourite BEHEMOTH video of all time! I hope you all enjoy it, and we look forward to ILYAYD’s launch this Friday!”
Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES), mixing by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM) mastering by Tom Baker (NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON) and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa, I Loved You At Your Darkest can be pre-ordered digitally now at this location.
