“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this,” declares BEHEMOTH mastermind Nergal, about the band’s upcoming album, »I Loved You At Your Darkest« – due out October 5th via Nuclear Blast (Europe) / Metal Blade Records (North America). While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, its origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves. “It’s a verse from the Bible,” Nergal reveals. “It’s actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For Behemoth to use it as the basis of our record, it’s sacrilege to the extreme.”

A crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema, »I Loved You At Your Darkest« is
the group’s most dynamic record yet: extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other BEHEMOTH release.

Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES), mixing by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM) mastering by Tom Baker (NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa, »I Loved You At Your Darkest« can be pre-ordered digitally now at: behemoth.lnk.to/ILYAYD – where the video for the first single, ‘God = Dog’ (directed by Grupa 13 / www.grupa13.com), can also be viewed.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called powermetal.dk, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
