In the process of promoting A Forest, Nergal said that "covering music outside of metal is a challenge - covering legendary music is an even greater challenge… a lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail".

This is a challenge in which Behemoth failed miserably.   Review by nikarg ››
With ten full-lengths under their belt, all more or less acclaimed within the extreme metal community, Behemoth have nothing to prove to anyone. Throughout the band's long career any experimentation and progress from album to album was somewhat restrained and given in small, manageable doses. As a result the fans never really felt "alienated" or "betrayed". With their eleventh opus, I Loved You At Your Darkest or ILYAYD for short, Behemoth have come up with what is bound to be their most divisive release ever.   Review by nikarg ››
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.   Review by wormdrink414 ››
