Behemoth release their latest album 'The Satanist' last year in February. This week they have released a brand new video from that album for the track "Messe Noire". The album made it to 34 on US Billboard 200 and number 1 on Polish Albums.
The director of the music video Zev Deans explains his vision:
The story of Lucifer's fall, followed by his defiant rebirth, reminds me of Nergal's own personal struggles of recent years. Like Lucifer, Behemoth has recovered from hardship, and they are stronger than ever. With 'Messe Noire', I was lucky enough to work with some of the most talented people in the genre. I owe the success of this project to the intense sacrifice that Sharon and the rest of team gave to this work.
Behemoth's frontman Nergal has commented:
It was actually our drummer Inferno's idea to work with Zev Deans. He showed me a Portal video that literally blew my fuckin' mind! For a long time we've attempted to reach a new ground and artistically leave the comfort zone. The Satanist is THE record that challenges us on so many levels... and here we are, exploring new grounds with a video producer who is a genuine visionary! The 'Messe Noire' video surely adds new quality to our art and makes it even more transcendental... I am proud!
