This is not the Behemoth you most likely know and love, though it is indeed Nergal. This is from their past when they were a straight up black metal band. They did it pretty well too. That said I have to admit I'm much more of a fan of the direction they took on Satanica, still my...

Since "Satanica," I've been dreading the day when Nergal and company finally fail to live up to the standard they set with that amazing disc. Very few outfits can boast of even one release of that quality, but Behemoth, until now, have been able to claim at least three releases of such a high caliber: "Satanica," "Thelema.6," and "Zos Kia...

With a brief acoustic flourish dropping into churning guitars and blasting drums, we’re off to Behemoth Land, where Nergal sits upon a frozen throne of bone. Ah, a new Behemoth album; I’m always interested to hear what these guys are unleashing upon the unsuspecting masses! Plus, I was curious to hear what direction Nergal would...

Collectors and Behemoth fans rejoice! This is definitely a treat not worth missing. On the footsteps of Zos Kia Cultus Nergal provides this offering of extra goodies that has one outtake from Zos, 2 cover tunes and 7 whopping live tracks. The outtake, Conjuration ov Sleep Daemons is just as good as anything on Zos and performs some devious technical...

When I heard Behemoth's, "Satanica", it blew me away. The rawness of the music, the incredible vocals, and the seething energy and boil of the performance combined to make one of the best black/death metal albums of 1999. It was with some dissapointment that I listend to the follow up, "Thelema 6", which was just a tamer, more restrained retread...

This CD version of their limited 7” EP of the same title includes four more tracks than its vinyl counterpart. Only one of the seven songs can be found on any other Behemoth releases, though another is a re-recording (“From the Pagan Vastlands”). Also included are one b-side from the "Thelema.6" sessions and covers or Sarcofago, David Bowie, Morbid Angel,...

Well, they wasted no time with this one. It took less than a year for Behemoth to slap "Satanica" [one of last year's best albums] down on the copier and hit the big green button. This isn't a follow-up, it's a bookend, meaning that if you've heard "Satanica", then you already know pretty much what "Thelema.6" sounds like. Behemoth hasn't...

When I was introduced to Behemoth with their previous masterpiece, Satanica, I was floored -- almost unable to comprehend what I was hearing. The music therein was well layered, convincingly performed, and utterly brutal and evil. Behemoth's music on that album was heads above almost all the competition, and their smart melding of black metal and...

Behemoth originally played a much rawer style of black metal, but you'd hardly know it from the polished, blackened-death you find on "Satanica". This record is huge. Its production is huge, its guitars are huge, its vocals are huge, its image, drums, attitude, cover art and performances are huge. The name suits them, because "Satanica" is "behemoth" incarnate. Led by then...

Poland's Behemoth on its most recent release, Satanica, serves up a still warm, unspeakably brutal outing of blast beat laden black metal intermixed with death riffs. The resulting music is both catchy and violent, something black metal bands these days often lack. The musical skills of the three piece becomes evident immediately as "Decade of Therion" begins, and they show...

Chaotica is a collection of old tracks that most Behemoth fans will have, unless they have become familiar with the band recently. This two-CD package, which is limited, contains in its entirety the “Grom” album, the “Sventevith” album, the “Bewitching the Pomerania” EP and the “And the Forests Dream Eternally” EP. In addition to that, there is a cover of...

This album sits very nicely on my shelf and not just because the name looks very like Bathory [from a distance and in the dark]. These three guys hail from Poland and this 1996 release bears no resemblance to that other well known Polish export Vader. Behemoth are black metal through and through and even though this album is now...
