To say Behemoth‘s kind of on top of their game right now would be a sort of understatement. After having just released an absolute monster of an album in Opvs Contra Natvram, the band livestreamed a badass performance that served as a huge “fuck you” to the Polish authorities, and they’re getting ready to tour South America this November with Arch Enemy.
Earlier today, the band took promoting their latest album to the next level, as they released a music video for the endlessly riveting album closer “Versvs Christvs.”
Featuring pianos throughout huge portions of the song that almost sounds Rammstein-esque (think the piano version of “Mein Hertz brennt”) during the quiet parts in some ways, the video for “Versvs Christvs” is visually striking, thanks to the work of director Agata Alexander.
Frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski said the album’s critical success and the release of such an artistic music video was an extremely pleasurable experience for himself and the rest of the band.
“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 L.A.-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!”
You can check out the video below. Opvs Contra Natvram came out on September 16 via Nuclear Blast and is currently available wherever music is sold.
