Brings out your Inner Beast

I am not a fan of death metal. There is only so much growling, pounding, and crunching I can take before it all becomes unlistenable to me - but I am also willing to give anything a try. Behemoth has never been on my radar, but then, while looking through Metal Hammer, I saw the cover to this album. It looked dark, mysterious, and inviting, so I checked out the video for "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel," and I was hooked. Behemoth instantly went from a band that I could care less about to one whose new album I was eagerly awaiting. It doesn't dissappoint.
This record is a beautiful, brutal, challenging listen. There is emotion in those guttural roars. There is a sense of patience and payoff in each song. There is a light that permeates the darkness of the music. This is not easy music. Nothing about this is commercial; you won't be humming this album or hearing it on the radio.
This is no cookie-cutter effort. The album beckons you to listen to it, again, and again, and again. To quote an overused but, here, effective meme, one does not simply listen to and/or buy just one song from this album.
It is a complete work of art. It's all or nothing. It's exhausting to listen to, but it makes you think and it makes you feel like you could take on anything.
And thank the Devil for that!

Considered to be one of the leading death metal bands to emerge from Poland in the 1990s, Behemoth have endured quite a few lineup shifts in the course of their career (especially in the bass department), with founding singer/guitarist Nergal (Adam Darski) being the only constant member. Behemoth were formed in 1991 (originally as a trio), and began issuing several demos shortly thereafter, the most circulated one being 1993's From the Pagan Vastlands. The same year, the band issued their debut release...
