Behemoth – The Satanist

Excited by my opportunity to see 5 bands on May 29 for the farewell SLAYER!! \m/  \m/ tour, I thought I’d better check out Behemoth, see what’s up…

Behemoth are a Polish “blackened death metal” band, and they’ve been around, over ten studio albums, since 1991 (formed by lead singer Nergal).

This album is super-loud, and the music is absolutely killer. As usual, I don’t really dig that ‘demon from the pits of hell’ style of growl/shouting that passes for vocals, but as the album went on I got used to it. Released on Nuclear Blast in 2014, Satanist is their most recent effort, and it seems to have received (pretty much) universal acclaim from reviewers and fans alike.

The whole album has an epic quality to it, as though the armies of heaven and hell are charging into the fray right there in your good headphones, and thus it’s actually quite uplifting and satisfying. Without question, the production brings everything they do here to full realization. It’s clear, and definitely roomy enough to make everything sound full. I also learned that “the cover art was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist Denis Forkas. The paint used included some of band leader Nergal’s own blood.” Now that’s metal!

These guys will make an excellent addition to the SLAYER!! \m/  \m/ tour line-up, and I have no trouble believing that this stuff is absolutely going to decimate in a live setting.
