Album Review

Behemoth is one of the most ferocious-sounding metal bands on Earth. Vocalist/guitarist Nergal roars less like Cookie Monster and more like a blast furnace; his voice pours from the speakers and blows your hair back. Since 2000's Thelema.6, the band has been on an unbelievable hot streak, releasing one marathon of unrelenting punishment after another. The Behemoth sound is dense without being monolithic; drummer Inferno combines machine-gun precision with thunderous power, driving the band relentlessly forward like a tank speeding downhill as Nergal's guitar solos arise out of the music like a demonic snake coiling out of an ocean of lava to strike the listener in the face. The nine songs on Evangelion don't represent any real stylistic left turns for Behemoth. The brutal riffing, avalanches of drums, and firestorm vocals are all present throughout, as are Nergal's lyrics, which are much more sophisticated and rooted in a deep understanding of the Old Testament than the usual, rote Christian-bashing of most death and black metal. There are, of course, some surprises — closing track "Lucifer" is a doom-inflected epic with orchestral overtones and jarring bursts of noise, and "Alas, the Lord Is Upon Me" is equally dark and moody until its final moments, at which point it becomes a head-long death metal assault. Ultimately, Behemoth are absolute masters of the craft of making extreme metal. Every record is a savage beating one doesn't so much listen to as withstand, and Evangelion is no exception. [Evangelion was also released with a bonus DVD consisting of a feature on the making of the album.]

Customer Reviews

Double J All Day = Moron

Now just because you don't understand our music doesn't give you the right to criticize it. The fact that you have the time and energy to go around searching for random bands and writing rediculous insults about them just means you have no life and need to get a job. You say our music is redundant (you used more, less complicated words) and yet all of your "Rap" and "R&B" music sing about the same thing. Drugs, sex, and murder. Get real, you're just like every one of the other pin-headed morons that listen to a black man talking fast and call it talent. You get ripped off every time you buy one of their albums. How much money have YOU wasted? Get a life, get a job, get a girl and stop writing reviews to bands you don't listen to. As for this album, I've yet to buy it because I'm not into much money right now but I've listened to every 30 second EP and I'm looking forward to buying it. I gave it 5 stars because I know that I'll end up thinking of it as a 5 star album anyway.

I Was A Bit Disappointed

Okay, so this is the second Behemoth album I've given a full listen. (First being Demigod.) I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. The guitar and drums haven't changed for the worse (in fact, they've actually improved), but Nergal's voice...Where are the Cannibal Corpse-rivalling death growls from Demigod? With that being said, the album will take a while to grow on you. The best tracks are "Lucifer", "Transmigrating Beyond Realms Ov Amenti", "Daimonos", and "Total Invasion".

Now I know I'm going to get this review downrated a lot because of this next statement. To the reviewer that was hating on Slipknot, I can't totally agree. I think that Slipknot is talented in their own right. Standing up to Behemoth? Hell no. But their first two albums, you've got to hand it to them, it was pretty cool. And yes, I agree that they have substantially declined over the years. With that being said, I know I'm going to get downrated a LOT, but I just thought I'd let you guys know.

Epic

I got the album before it was released, and it was amazing. It had the original 9 tracks. I had no idea that Behemoth would release another bonus track to go with it. This is their third best album. 1. Demigod 2. The Apostasy 3. Evangelion Evangelion might move it's way up. I'm going to get the bonus track today. For all of the people who are wondering... I was looking for the song online and I came across the same song, but by a different band. This is a cover song. The original band that made this song was called Killing Joke. It was 2 minutes shorter, and not as good. Behemoth made this song better. The lyrics are the same. It is a very good song. There you go. Now you know.
