A little Sunday Blasphemy, Behemoth: Alas the Lord is Upon me

Haven't had time to write much this weekend as I have been busy learning new material for a potential drum audition I have in the works. But it's Sunday and there's always time for a little blasphemy, and there are few greater sources for blasphemy or expressing one's disdain for religion, in particular christianity, than Behemoth. So when I stumbled upon a video from the band that I had not yet seen, I knew it was the perfect post for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I've mentioned these guys many times before in my twitter posts as well as here on the blog when I wrote about front man Nergal's public assertion of his continued rejection of religion in response to speculation that he had converted following his cancer diagnosis. But in case I didn't mention it then, this is hands down one of my favorite bands on the planet and they have been a big influence on my own (as of yet unpublished) death metal project in recent years. Their lyrics and musical style are of course what drew me to them initially but I also find their visual style, artwork, stage show, etc, equally enthralling. like most metal bands they have had their moments of silliness when it comes to music videos, as their production budget was clearly struggling to catch up to their vision, but lately their visual style, in particular their videos have taken on a Del Toro like quality that I find mesmerizing.

So, if your looking for something to scare the crap out of your religious friends and family with, or you happen to be a fellow fan of all things heavy who was turned off by the slower black metal style of earlier Behemoth releases, check out today's video for "Alas the Lord is Upon me" from their last studio release Evangelion, an exceptional album which has quickly made it's way into my list of all time favorites, the drum work is particularly impressive, so if you haven't before, then go check it out!



Behemoth: Alas the Lord is Upon me. BE FOREWARNED, While the Youtube version is censored (you can find the uncensored version, which I could not embed, HERE on Vimeo) aside from it's overtly BLASPHEMOUS and VIOLENT IMAGERY, this video also contains several brief moments of SEXUAL CONTENT and NUDITY (See, I told you is was good).
