Before unleashing their eagerly awaited new album, I Loved You At Your Darkest this Friday, Behemoth have released a video for new track, “Bartzabel” over on their YouTube channel.

Behemoth mastermind Nergal comments: “Bartzabel is a song that came in the midst of a Behemoth rehearsal… We had no structure, no vision – but piece by piece it came to be and we were extremely excited by the result. To us, it’s the eye of the Ilyayd storm: sonically calmer and slower than anything else on the record, but definitely one of the darkest!  Lyrically, we (myself and Krzysztof Azarewicz) were inspired by Aleister Crowley’s conjuration of the Spirit of Mars – which the video, by our trusted friends in Grupa 13, depicts beautifully…I may even go as far to say that it’s my favourite Behemoth video of all time! I hope you all enjoy it, and we look forward to Ilyayd‘s launch this Friday!”

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: http://behemoth.lnk.to/ILYAYD.  For various physical formats including various vinyl options, please visit: http://nblast.de/BehemothILYAYD.
