Announces EU/UK tour w/ At The Gates, Wolves In The Throne Room

UK release day in-store appearance at HMV Oxford Street

 

“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this,” declares BEHEMOTH mastermind, Nergal about the band’s upcoming album, I Loved You At Your Darkest, set for release on 5th October via Nuclear Blast.  While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, the 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 digitally now at http://behemoth.lnk.to/ILYAYD, where the video for the first single, God = Dog (directed by Grupa 13 / http://www.grupa13.com) can also be watched.

 

To pre-order I Loved You At Your Darkest in various physical formats (CD, limited digibook CD, various coloured and pic disc vinyl formats and a deluxe box set), visit the Nuclear Blast UK store at http://www.nuclearblaststore.co.uk/shop/nuclearblast/products.php?cat=4583.  All formats are also available bundled with a very limited number of tickets to an exclusive Album Launch Event being held in London on 5th October.

 

BEHEMOTH will also be in London for an in-store signing at 5.30pm on album release day, Friday 5th October at HMV, 363 Oxford Street, W1.  Further details are available at hmv.co/Behemoth.
