Behemoth to release new studio album

Behemoth, the high priests of extreme metal, will release their 12th studio album, “Opvs Contra Natvram”, on September 16th via Nuclear Blast. The ten chapters of fury that make up “Opvs Contra Natvram” were written and recorded over the course of a very strange year for the globe. As with previous studio outings, the new album was produced by Behemoth, with mixing handled by acclaimed studio legend Joe Barresi (Nine Inch Nails, Tool, QOTSA, Alice in Chains).

Frontman and band visionary, Adam “Nergal” Darski comments: “The album title means going against the current. It’s the negative of the values and morals and ethics that I stand against. I’ve seriously been wrestling with destructive tendencies in pop culture — cancel culture, social media, and tools which I feel are very dangerous weapons in the hands of people who are not competent to judge others. That’s something which I find very destructive and disturbing — and extremely limiting coming from an artists’ perspective. This is my middle finger to that. There’s a song on the record called “Neo-Spartacvs”. Spartacus was one of the most iconic rebels in history who went against the most powerful empire of all time. In the end, it’s me screaming, ‘I Am Spartacus, and so are you!’ I want to spark that flame of rebellion. If something seems wrong, then stand up to it!

The video for “Ov My Herculean Exile” has been directed by Zuzanna Plisz. You can watch it here:
