Behemoth to release new studio album “I Loved You at Your Darkest” on October 5th 2018

Behemoth I Loved You at Your Darkest cover
On October 5th, 2018, Polish black/death overlords Behemoth will unleash their new album, “I Loved You at Your Darkest”, upon the world via Metal Blade Records (North America) & Nuclear Blast (Europe).

In anticipation of this record’s release, two “I Loved You at Your Darkest” listening parties will take place next month in New York and Los Angeles – featuring front-man Nergal in-person! Be the first to hear the album before release date and RSVP now here (NYC – September 11th @ The Stanton Social) or here (Los Angeles – September 13th @ The Love Song Bar/Regent DTLA). RSVP is required, but spaces are limited; RSVP doesn’t guarantee entry (admittance is on a first-come, first-served basis – so arrive early!).

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.

The video for the first single, “God = Dog” (directed by Grupa 13), can be viewed below.

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 here.
