BEHEMOTH Launches Video For New Single, "Bartzabel"

From The Album I Loved You At Your Darkest

"It doesn't get more blasphemous than this," declares BEHEMOTH mastermind Nergal, about the band's upcoming album, I Loved You At Your Darkest - due out October 5th via Metal Blade Records (North America) / Nuclear Blast (Europe). While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, its origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves. "It's a verse from the Bible," Nergal reveals. "It's actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For BEHEMOTH to use it as the basis of our record, it's sacrilege to the extreme."

A crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema, I Loved You At Your Darkest is the group's most dynamic record yet: extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release. 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 now at: http://www.metalblade.com/behemoth. The video for the new single, "Bartzabel" (directed by Grupa 13 / http://www.grupa13.com), can be viewed on KNAC.COM HERE. The following formats are available in the USA, along with an exclusive t-shirt:

  • jewelcase CD
  • digibook CD (hardcover digibook, 40 page booklet)
  • baltic amber vinyl (limited to 600 copies)
  • opaque white w/ gold splatter vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive - limited to 300 copies)
  • black / gold split vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive - limited to 300 copies)
  • clear w/ smoky black swirl (Nuclear Blast US exclusive - limited to 300 copies)
  • clear w/ grey inside (Kings Road exclusive - limited to 500 copies)
  • "God = Dog" 7" picture disc (Metal Blade Records exclusive - limited to 666 copies)
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. 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!"
