2014 may have been one of the biggest years in the history of Behemoth who released what many are calling the metal album of the year in the album The Satanist which also took home The Monster Entertainment Award for Heavy Ass Metal Album Of The Year at the 4TH Annual Monster Entertainment Awards. Many believed it was a resurgence that was well deserved for the Polish Blackened Death Metal act, but that is not all. The band released astonishing music videos that were just visually captivating for Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel and Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer that were just as visually disturbing if you are a die hard Christian. Now the band has returned once more with another visually stunning music video for the track Messe Noire which is also off of The Satanist and it’s just as visually disturbing. The band chose director Zev Deans to helm the video for Messe Noire after seeing what he had done for Portal and their video for Curtain. The primary subject matter for the video is one of the oldest stories in history that has always captivated people as it tells the story of Lucifer’s decent from Heaven and into hell. Behemoth frontman and cancer survivor Nergal tells the story of why he chose Deans, “It was actually our drummer Inferno’s idea to use Zev Deans. He showed me a Portal video that literally blew my f—in’ mind! For a long time we’ve attempted to reach a new ground and artistically leave the comfort zone. The Satanist is THE record that challenges us on so many levels… and here we are, exploring new grounds with a video producer who is a genuine visionary! ‘Messe Noire’ video surely adds new quality to our art and makes it even more transcendental… I am proud!” Zev Deans adds to the convo saying, “The story of Lucifer’s fall, followed by his defiant rebirth, reminds me of Nergal’s own personal struggles of recent years. Like Lucifer, Behemoth has recovered from hardship, and they are stronger than ever. With ‘Messe Noire,’ I was lucky enough to work with some of the most talented people in the genre. I owe the success of this project to the intense SACRIFICE that Sharon and the rest of team gave to this work.” Check out the video below and pick up the album if you haven’t already done so.
