Polish blackened death metallers BEHEMOTH recently filmed a video for the song “Lucifer” off the band’s current album, “Evangelion”. The Grupa 13-directed clip, which can be seen below, features Polish singer, guitarist, and poet Maciej Malenczuk, who also contributed guest vocals to the track. Also available is behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the video.
Commented BEHEMOTH guitarist/vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski: “It’s crazy. The making-of video is 10 minutes long and you watch it like it was three minutes… it’s so intense, and still, [it] doesn’t look like anything we’ve done before!
“‘Lucifer’ was a huge artistic challenge and I managed to create a VERY unique atmosphere.”
BEHEMOTH recently rehearsed for the first time since Darski was diagnosed with leukemia last August. The group also started writing a new song, which was described by Nergal as “fast, furious, but more evil in a way.”
In an interview with Metal Sucks, Nergal stated about BEHEMOTH’s upcoming touring activities, “The October shows [in Poland] are just to get warmed up. Then we might do some shows in Australia and Asia — that’s the plan. Then the priority for early 2012 is a European tour, then shortly after that, a U.S. tour. This is our top priority for the next year and we’re going to fucking do it!”
He added, “Just wait and see us on the stage. You’ll see. I’m not going to reveal anything about it, but we … It’s not gonna just be BEHEMOTH. It’s not like time stood still for us, like we were frozen in time and are just going to appear with the same entourage and in the same outfits. No. We’re going to come back, we want to remind people of our existence obviously, but we want to make a fucking impact, an impression. We want to show them that, hey, we are still fucking evolving. We’re not just hoping that you’ll come to see us because I was sick. Fuck that. I’ll be better soon and we’re going to deliver!”
