The battle trumpets are always welcome to hear. That said, I really like a few of their albums. Nothing jumps out to distract or frustrate, thereby inducing headaches. A fitting thing for a band this extreme who actually entered the Billboard Top at , I dare say. The album is further exploration for Behemoth into the realm of death metal and an attempt to further distance themselves from their black metal past. I’m surprised at how similar, considering the vast changes over their previous albums.

I should also note that the duet with Warrel Dane is quite interesting considering both have very unique vocal arrangements. The drums are still insane, I doubt Inferno could ever not be as mad as he is.
You see, you have to be in the right mindset to listen to ‘Demigod’ or it’s going to be too much; you have to suspend your disbelief to really get into something so insanely huge at all moments. US Heatseekers Albums Billboard . Almost like a live recording instead of a sound-proof studio.
Behemoth – The Apostasy – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
The most necessary trait for a drummer is to be flexible. However, the leads are a different story. Solos are present again but not as emotional as on Demigod. The vocals, on the other hand, create most of the darkness and rawness of the soundscape. It also has extensive spoken word pieces which remind me of the Aresius character from Rhapsody. Behe,oth still here a tad of Melecesh knocking off on Pazuzu and Prometherion, but for the most part the album is much behrmoth lyrically then on Demigod.
He has great speed and uses frequent blast fills but always knows when a song needs to be pounded slowly.
It is also the most dynamic of the disc, the mid-tempo song introduced with the cold sounds of piano-key aposgasy and featuring Warrel Dane ‘s NEVERMORE anguished clean vocals, as well as croaky and creepy spoken word parts and Nergal ‘s beastly growl. And that says volumes.
In fact, clocking in at just over 5 minutes, the epic sounding “Inner Sanctum” is the album’s longest track. Behemith solo’s are also present on tracks such as “Prometherion”, showing off Nergal and Orion’s skills and showing just how much the band has changed since their black metal days, the only real remants of which are the outfits and the corpsepaint they use for live performances. It’s very memorable, too. He is underutilized though, I suspect it’s the most simple thing he has ever played.
Still, the production has its flaws. This is not background music, it demands your attention.
His voice is now, for the most part, straight up death metal vocals. The solos are filled with unpredictability and near flawless execution, sprinkled with a hint of whammy for that extra touch. Occasionally an acoustic apotasy does show up on the album, mostly for atmosphere’s sake, and it does give your ears a break from being pummeled. It is both fast, and flexible. Or all of these things can fail and end behemohh completely killing the experience.
Discography Blindead Vader Vesania Azarath. In closing, this is one of my personal favorite albums from these guys. Fans of the basic idea will tend to find a couple in a given discography that better suit their tastes.
I decided that I had to set the mood to let it sink in completely, so I got myself a nice pot pie, sat down in my room, and turned the volume on my stereo to “ear fuck.
The Apostasy – Wikipedia
Rather than going melodic like some other “black” metal bands – Behemoth have moved even to a more abrasive approach. He maybe not the most technical drummer nehemoth there but his violent, fast-paced style his a must for the Behemoth sound.
This album is definitely approaching ground that isn’t black metal anymore. But a lot of the same elements just don’t work on the new album, though I will admit it’s a pretty good modern death metal album.
And Behrmoth got it right from Nergal himself that they are embarking on their first ever headlining tour this autumn! It’s just impossible to take seriously. The Apostasy is everything we love about Behemoth, crazy fast riffs by the pound, skull-shattering drums and growls that would make the devil run away his tail between his legs.
