    Not too many bands could throw a spoken-word, Kenny G sax muzak thing into the middle of a song called "In The Absence Ov Light" and not get laughed away into obscurity. Behemoth can get away with shit like that. They're just too cool to be dismissed. They sound cool and, with a theatrical sense that rivals well over half a Lady Gaga, they LOOK cool. I mean, I'm not gay, but I'd let Nergal and Orion double team me if they still want to.

    03.02.2014 Starting with Demigod, Behemoth's albums became more and more soulless. Faster, more brutal, better produced, but devoid of feelings. But no more. This one is spontaneous, wild, unhinged and unpredictable. It has more music than brutality, more feeling than calculation. A fantastic treat.

    Is it really that bad, because you rate it with a 5?

    5 = extremely average and mediocre, not "bad". Competent musicianship, understanding of instrumentation and orchestration but almost no quality and memorable songwriting or variation. I imagine that's how Marcel feels about this, because that's certainly how I do.

    I really don't understand all the raving about this album.

    I'll now go back to Satanica, Thelema.6 and Zos Kia Cultus (Here And Beyond). That's where it's at with Behemoth truly the Pinnacle of their career.

    The album is not good. It is below average (which is a 6) so it deserves a 5 (which means not good here). A 7 means good, which it is not.

    Ok. Yeah i know that 5 means "not good" but for Behemoth standards a 5 is quite bad. I'll still buy it, just out of curiosity.

    Need to listen to it a bit more before making a firm opinion but so far it sounds nice but not so brutal nor "powerful" as Evangelion for instance. I guess that Behemoth are like Cradle of Filth or Dimmu Borgir, ie growing mature hence not as dark as they used to be. But as said before, I need to give it a few tries before making sure about my feelings


    cradle of filth or dimmu borgir!?!?!?!?!
    now, i laugh a lot for your post
    are you ok?? why rigmarole defiance, what do you say for yourself?
    go and listen to BehemotH a lot...then you can understand the things ov behemoth and black metal (death)...
    hey my friend go and kill yourself
    i am waiting for your funeral...it should be dark when i am hearse


    I don't know if I should waste time answering this kind of comment... If someone understood it all please forward

    To make things clear I like all CoF albums even tho the latest one really lacks identity. The same goes with Dimmu Borgir, tho I enjoy Abrahadabra but would love to see them making music without a 50 person orchestra As for Behemoth, what I meant was that this album reminds me of CoF or DB as it is very different from what they used to do before. Now that I have listened to the full album I think that it definitely lacks something. It sounds good but is not typical of Behemoth. It's not brutal nor powerful and it finds me a bit bored in the end. Maybe I expected too much from it.

    @Zepar : I feel sorry for your mental disease ^^

    ha ha okay you are right.
    anyway, this band is great with the satanist album.

      Through my second listen, and I really am enjoying this. Not excellent, but not too shabby either. Definitely feels more dynamic than Demigod and the terribly generic death metal album that was The Apostasy. Evangelion showed a possible step up, and the band delivered here. However, it's still nothing overly grandiose to the point of blowing your socks off. Typical Behemoth, with some minor improvements. I'd give it a 7, maybe a 7.5

    I've managed a total of 3-4 for Iced Earth's new one in 2-3 weeks and they're one of my favourite bands.

    Come on, the lyrics on this are terrible, hahah.

    What little I have heard from this album music-wise is actually not bad, which frankly surprised me as I didn't think I'd like this but lyrics are terrible. Not just in terms of meaning, or lack of thereof, but they also sound quite bad and have really bad flow. I know it is extreme metal, so stuff don't have to rhyme and all but this would even sound awkward if it was read up in prose.

    There's no such rule that in extreme metal lyrics don't have to rhyme And the prose thing applies to 95% of metal lyrics probably

    There is no such rule indeed, but if you clean sing and your lyrics don't rhyme in any way they often come out awkward. If you growl or scream them then that problem evaporates.

    And yeah but in general I think most metal lyrics suck. Not a lyricist's genre by any means hahah.

    Rating: 8 Very mixed feelings about this album. drums are the best I've heard in a loooooong time but still not as good as their previous stuff. some parts sound very un-behemothish and besides a few moments I haven't been impressed that much. (which previous albums did but maybe my taste also just changed)
    album is overall enjoyable and luckily better then expected but it's not a new behemoth masterpiece.

    After hearing their entire discography I have to say that Zos Kia Cultus and Demigod are the best. The Satanist is somewhere in the middle.

    Since you have heard so little, I don't really take anything you say with anything other than laughable apathy. When you hear the whole, then I'll just probably completely apathetic. Amazing work in every facet of this album.

    I have read all the lyrics. But as I said they suck major ass, and I have not commented on anything else really. Aside from the laughable lyrics, probably this would turn out to be another generic "satanic" extreme metal release with some occasionally enjoyable, but absolutely generic music and totally ridiculous and unnecessary imagery that only serves to convince me more and more how childish this genre is .

    Satan and hell appear 6 times each on the lyrics, illuminati not even once. As for god/demons names, the only ones that appear are Akephalos twice and Agathos Daimon once in the last song. After a quick copy paste of the lyrics on Notepad++ and checking the word count, all the things you said combined consist of 1% of the lyrics. If you're gonna criticize something, at least do it for valid reasons

    Is the word count by any chance 666?


    I died hahahaha

    It's a grower. Now I like it even more than I did initially. the album breathes and lives. It's devoid of that soulless, calculated clinical technicality that permeated The Apostasy and Evangelion. It seems more honest and straightforward.

    Considering the responses by some of you, it's clear that the lovers are more agressive than the haters.


    The album's biggest hindrance on the way to appreciation is the hype. If The Satanist was released by an obscure band from out of nowhere, it'd be hailed as a revelation.

    you know what? I think this is just good music. Forget genres, contexts, expectations, names and ideologies. This album is simply a set of good, memorable songs. Very much unlike what Behemoth has made us grow accustomed to, but great nevertheless.

    I'm glad you think so. To me this is lifeless, soulless drivel, regardless of genres, contexts, expectations, names and ideologies.

    I absolutely 100% agree with those comments. I feel like Nergal gave a pretty good description of the album before it was released. I was expecting just another blast-fest and everything played as fast as possible, but this album has a nice ebb and flow to it. It picks up and slows down. I think he called it "organic" or something along those lines, and I'd agree with that. I've been able to listen to it while at home focusing on just the music, while working and while working out. Depending on which of these activities I'm doing at the time, I've picked up something that I hadn't noticed before in the album. It's not going to be my favourite this year ,I wouldn't think, but it is one hell of a start to it.

    Same. It's interesting reading all the different opinions but eventually I'm just gonna have to hear it myself.
