One of the essential bands in extreme metal music is certainly Polish titans Behemoth. The band released its eleventh monster album in October last year. They recorded and engineered this opus in various studios in their native Poland, released by Mystic Production and produced by Daniel Bergstrand and by the band. Review of this masterpiece deserves to be published on our Sinfully Vin website, because it is significant album for obscure world we are representing.
In comparison with previous record The Satanist (2014), Behemoth has not changed its main theme, as they used Satan for their inspiration. The Satanist was magnificent album because it found its admirers among those who don’t even listen to Behemoth. I Loved You at Your Darkest can be considered as a successor of the 2014 record. Music is still satanic with many catchy riffs and melodies and evil lyrics – simply, blackened death metal. First innovation in Behemoth’s music can be noticed in the beginning of the album, on the intro called Solve. They first time ever used children choir to sing satanic mantras, and it’s marvelous! Their tinny voices are perfect contrast to Nergal’s growl. In addition, he used his clear vocal very often on this record. Once more Behemoth provided a lot of blasphemous titles like Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica or God = Dog which are certainly pain in the ass for Christians. Havohey Pantocrator is absolutely black metal song both by the music and by the lyrics because Nergal sang his own Our father prayer. Maybe this one could be your personal favorite. Track that can throw you in the dark endless forest where only howling of wolves can be heard is mighty Wolves of Siberia, for which the video was made. Bartzabel is more ritualistic and catchy song for those who prefer mid-tempo songs. The closing of the album are songs We are the Next 1000 Years and Coagvla, the first one is inevitable song on their promotional tour set list, and the second is the instrumental composition which is rare for Behemoth.
