For a long time I have liked Behemoth, but always felt that they were somewhat over-rated. Not so on this new album. This is a solid contender for metal album of the year. The music is darker, clearer, angrier, and deeper than previous efforts. In a year of stand out metal releases (such as Blood Oath by Suffocation), Behemoth have definately pulled out all the stops and created a monster. I can’t wait to see what Vader has in store for us in a few weeks.
