Holy Mother of God… This isn’t happening. It just can’t be… What happened to sanity, logic and clear thought as soon as I put the play button? Where is my head and jaw hiding? Why did this release have to be once more so perfect, that i feel idiot whatever i’m going to write? I feel like a prisoner somewhere in a void, bound by chains, unable to move, and ”Evangelion”, the last release of Behemoth is the ideal soundtrack for the doom that awaits me.
Once again caught by surprise by the Polish trio, once again this feeling that Nergal is going to come out of the speakers and tear your throat, your soul, your every being apart. Once again this feeling that the three guys sound like an army, filled with affinity, ready to crush everything and everyone who stands in front their purpose: Absolute brutality, profound lust to leave no signs of life in their wake. Supreme domination and full establishment as one of the most important bands today. I dare not think there is even one opposing them. He will soon find himself in a place where there is no return, as punishment for not believing in them. While others tend to hold themselves back, Behemoth come back with all their weapons of destruction.
Each time they become more brutal and pounding, always sounding fresh and direct. I don’t know many bands who can do that today. From the first seconds of ”Daimonos”, until the last moments of ”Lucifer”, an eight-minute epic, everything is here. Blasting rhythms, mid-tempo swamp-like parts, with Nergal sounding as the prophet of Armageddon, Orion being the pulse of this monster walking towards you, and Inferno totally out of control, like an automaton full of bullets that keeps refuelling all the time and filling you with bullets. Bullets that don’t cause death but much greater damage. Addiction, obsession, need and irresistability to put the cd once again from the beginning.
This year, the nightmare lasts 44 minutes, the scenery is called ”Evangelion” and the tormentor is called Behemoth. Can you feel it coming? Or have you already started feeling weak, unable and afraid of what’s to come?
