Check it out.
The song comes another incredibly striking video, produced by Grupa 13.
Behemoth front man Nergal discusses the video: “Yes, we took all the time in the world to complete this project. And we did everything that was humanely possible to accurately express our vision. We crossed the Rubicon. “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” is an ecstatic manifest of our unrestrained artistic will, where we dare to reach out beyond the limitations of the heavy metal genre. And it’s only the beginning… Enjoy!”
Additionally, BEHEMOTH’s long-awaited new album, “The Satanist,” will be released in Aust via EVP/Rocket on Feb 7 2014 and will contain a bonus track not available in the US or EU versions.
“The Satanist” deluxe box includes: CD/DVD digibook in silver mirror slipcase with a high quality 44 page booklet (with gold foil, UV gloss lamination), supersize poster flag (approx. 3.5′ x 5′), wooden black inverted rosary cross, metal pin, black envelope with black communion wafers. The DVD, “Live Barbarossa,” includes a professionally filmed show in Ekaterinburg, Russia, as well as 30 min documentary about the creative process behind “The Satanist.”
The album was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. “The Satanist” was mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Metallica, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art for “The Satanist” was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas. The paint used included some of Nergal’s own blood! Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (Paradise Lost, etc.) and Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Ghost).
