Behemoth Reveal Video for Album Finale And “Crown Jewel” Versvs Christvs

21st September 2022 0 By John Deaux

Polish extreme metal overlords¬†BEHEMOTH¬†celebrated the release of their new album, Opvs Contra Natvram,¬†basking in critical acclaim from media, fans and tastemakers all over the world.¬†¬†Today, the band crowns their 30+ year career’s most recent milestone with a new video that perfectly reflects the dark, menacing atmosphere created by the album’s closing track, Versvs Christvs –¬†a riveting piece of work, featuring piano and clean vocals.¬†

BEHEMOTH’s leader and artistic alchemist,¬†Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski, informs:

“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 LA 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!”

The band’s 12th studio collection is a stark reminder of¬†the rebellion, individuality and unflinching self-expression that BEHEMOTH’s phenomenal work inbues, shaped by a literary worldview.¬†It also reflects a musical evolution, as there’s little doubt that¬†Opvs Contra Natvram¬†is BEHEMOTH’s strongest and most sophisticated musical collection to date.¬†
