BEHEMOTH, I Loved You At Your Darkest

Album: I Loved You At Your Darkest

Year Released: October 5, 2018

Genre: Blackened death metal

Tracks: 12

Length: 46:32

The previous material of this Polish band. After a great job such as The Satanist, where they played with prodigious elements and used many memorable details, preserving the style and sound that they sowed in their previous álbum. Behemoth design with their songs a set of dreamlike and brutal sensations. Nergal decided to implement many choirs, silences with a strong snare and melodies including an acoustic guitar. Although it’s not anything like their works of yesteryear, we must admit that they still have majestic components that decorate the band at its highest peak. They are known for having many nuances, their aggressive blasphemous songs have created the band a very distinctive personality beyond the rest, I would dare to say that they are indisputably one of the Blackened Death Metal bands that never ceases to amaze with their vast elegance.

Although fans are not very happy with this new album, I must discern. Because if the desire for constant change is to innovate, not all people will see that impact as something clearly positive. Behemoth, possess a perfect balance between the new artistic and visual trend with the incorporation of sticky choruses and dark melodies that generate a very remarkable combination. By this, I mean that while the change may not have pleased the public very much, it does not imply that the overall record is bad. You have to give them credit for the children's choir in "God = Dog", they achieved a terrifying and ghostly atmosphere. It was like watching my favorite horror movie, lets say its little Danny in the famous Stephen King movie: “The Shining” with constant suspense as he walked the halls on his trike, the protagonism of generating fear was achieved just like when we entered on this particular topic. You will not be able to stop listening to it again and again, if we add to this the very cinematographic work in its music video you will be truly amazed.

"God=Dog" - (Clean Version)

The Style

Nergal, has shown us with his hoarse voice that not all brutality comes from constant blast-beat and gutturals. The songs can also manage to express that dark panorama with lyrics of barbaric and mysterious anger through a domain of absolute emptiness, the respect they earned years ago and they continue to assert it is due the band identity well defined in the world of metal.

As for the instruments, I must emphasize the guitar riffs as they are directed in a cooler, slower, darker and more progressive direction as they have never been seen on their records. We can notice this particular connotation as was its theme: "Bartzabel". As we can also get a more mellow and powerful rhythm like "If Crucifixion Was Not Enough". In general terms we must say this album is an angry and distinct journey. The powerful and renowned geniuses of Blackend Death Metal are not afraid to risk their musical career with a material that is not only new, but different and I must give them credit for it. The nature of Behemoth's beginnings will not be those of his current works. However, although there are t with little footage and others with more development, this does not imply that the characteristic infernal voice of the band falls into the abyss.


Summing It Up

In conclusion, Behemoth never ceases to amaze me. You can see the true beauty of a meticulous and elaborate ornament by Inferno and Orion. You can notice the heartbreaking and dark atmospheric passage that after silences where Nergal does not say a word, the frenetic and brutal filling of the guitars, bass and drums rejoice in your head in a multiple and constant way. The clean and also suffocating parts of the melodies will make you chase for days without being able to stop listening to the record over and over again. From the first song to the last, it will take you on a winding and deep modern-gothic path never seen or heard before.

The fabulous and hellish lyrics are not be left behind. The chaotic poetry of its verses are difficult to explain without a dark atmosphere to accompany it. However I will show you one of my favorite verses from the song, "Havohej Pantocrator":

" Our father, who lies in wait

Unhallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom enshriness

Thy phosphor blinds

On earth as it is in hell

Embrace my soul untraveled

Let me sail to the farthest sea

When I am thou, O lord

And lord when thou art me



By thou holy… "
