Behemoth3

Behemoth has posted a brand new track from their forthcoming album, “The Satanist” which will be released on February 4th in North America. The track is entitled “Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer” and is accompanied by a lyric video that includes artwork and text from inside the digipak booklet. Ora pro nobis, which is latin for “pray for us”, features lyrics penned by Nergal, along with Krzysztof Azarewicz. Watch and listen now…

Behemoth has also posted a brand new behind the scenes video for “The Satanist.” This video is the final in a series of four that offers a glimpse into the thought process behind the album that Albert Mudrian of Decibel Magazine heralds as “simply the best Behemoth record ever.” Check out the video below.

Behemoth’s front man, Nergal, simply offers the following statement: “‘The Satanist’ is magic. It’s dangerous. It’s adventurous, and it’s organic.”

“The Satanist” was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. “The Satanist” was mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Metallica, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art for “The Satanist” was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas (denisforkas.com). The paint used for “The Satanist” even included some of Nergal’s own blood! Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (Paradise Lost, etc.) and Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Ghost).
