Throughout the years of continuous support and endless discographies, Behemoth‘s The Satanist is without a doubt the most comprehensive, Jaw dropping and never predictable albums Behemoth has ever pulled out. Both musically, lyrically, atmospherically and artistically this brings triumphs of all forms within Metal. The opening track “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” immerses the listener into everlasting darkness which expresses natural viewpoints that truly seemed to resonating the earliest journeying. Every song including “O Father O Satan O Sun, Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer and the title track The Satanist” gives proper intelligence that’s extremely bold, majestic and haunting Blackened Death Metal incorporates their fundamentalism musicianship simply astonishing. Now Behemoth has a tread thin line between Black and Death Metal but highly seem to veer onto towards Death which simply states a wide branch of tighter sound with actual hooks, spoken words alongside Polish and English keyboards. The guitars are brought with disinfectant buzz saw refineries as well with the magnificent produced masterpiece where every parts represented are audible assist the lasting proceedings without compromising Behemoth’s quality efforts. While other albums including Evangelion, Demigod and The Apostasy are top notch performances Behemoth studied different meanings, metaphysics and created unrelenting passages which overhauled and succeeded. The lyrics do consists of Satanism mostly a rebellion, freedom and gives a archetypal Paganism which Behemoth has done prior to earliest material. However, these mythological messages and figures tells an emotional background and statements do not overshadowing true talent. As a fan of Demigod and other complexed albums, The Satanist is a diverse, universally acclaimed record promising evolution into Extreme Metal importances. This is their prayer and marked new heights.
