Inferno mixes up the cymbal work and fills on top of his nearly constant blasting, but his other drum patterns are too few and uninteresting. If one were to judge things by my LastFM account, Behemoth is my favorite band, topping all others by number of overall plays. August 11, “Lucifer” Released: Fantastic review for a great album.

There is almost no doubt that “Demigod” was their breakthrough album, The Apostasy was absolutely not Demigod Pt. The third song, “Ov Fire And The Void”, while very precise in its execution and evangeloon very classic Behemoth sounding tune, is the odd-man-out on Evangelion.
Lyrically borrowing from a poem by Tadeusz Micinski of the same name, the intro leads into an almost ambient moment, complete with choir mournings and windy soundscapes, before Nergal recites a part of the poem entirely in Polish for those hoping for vocal clarityand the main riff kicks in, accompanied by a tapping lead, for the rest of the first “verse”. Also, there seems to be a slightly lessened role of theatrics and dramatic elements as Nergal and co seems to have battened down the hatches and focused on actual riffs and furious death metal delivery as opposed to some of the extraneous choirs and synths that graced The Apostasy- the change behrmoth minimal, as there are a few injections of synths and Middle Eastern tangents, but its noticeable.
Behemoth as a band have clearly got a good sense of songwriting here; epic, angry and tight as hell. Everything on here is consistently entertaining, avoiding a redundant Deicide approach of dwelling on a particular feel or beat for too long, and avoiding the overuse of blast beats common to this style. This is what continues to make Behemoth stand out in heavy metal. Behemoth is a band I know little about. One could qualify their sound as being the peculiar marriage of Vader and Immortal, bringing the rapid fire brutality and monstrous vocalizations of the former in alignment with the unique melodic character of the latter.
Cradle of Filth Evermore Darkly. The only negative point of the drums on Evangelion would be some of the fills, good examples of these said fills are on the first three songs. The highlights of this release are the drums and the more “brutal death metal” oriented approach to the middle portion of the album.
A million miles from the band’s black metal beginnings, Behemoth are today the epitome of hyper-technical death metal, hyper-serious about the message they aim to spread, weaving anti-religious tales and mythology in a tapestry that melds Nergal’s sore-throat vocals, the band’s breakneck complex rhythms and some serious skin-bashing courtesy of longtime drummer Inferno.

Behemoth – Evangelion Review
Before one is completely taken over by the unrest, the the band enters with relentless fury, thus kicking off the album opener, “Daimonos”. Behemoth feature less guest musicians behemogh time in order to stay with the consistent sound that brings in the familiar black metal and Middle-Eastern influences. While I do enjoy it very much, it screams “single” almost immediately. As for the rhythm section of Orion and Inferno, both have made improvements in their playing.

Well this fan says it belongs at the top of it. But personally, I actually kind of miss the over the top, theatrical Nile worship of the last two albums. From the Pagan Vastlands. In Januarythe band was in the final stages of the songwriting and rehearsal process for the album.

Behemoth – Evangelion Review
With the good times, there must always be bad times, this album for starters, feels rather rehashed and sort of rushed to me. Long after most bands either call it quits or are at least done making good albums.
Orion is now clearly audible throughout most of the album, and often times makes creative runs of his own evangrlion a song to add more feel while still providing a thick low end. So, really, why are these guys popular? Why do I say this?
This vintage is as pure and veangelion as pure liquor, but will shock your ears rather than your liver. After the ambitious but muddled album The Apostasy, the band saw a need to take the frenetic energy and channel it into a mature, thick, and focused sound which remains fairly consistent throughout the album.
Though I’ve been listening to Poland’s superstars for many years yeah, since the black metal yearsI’ve never been a card carrying member of the international fan club that seems to revere them as beyemoth greatest thing since Cradle of Filth. They write solid, angry material and Nergal’s neo-occult lyrical themes are always fascinating to me.
