“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this,” declares BEHEMOTH mastermind, Nergal, about the band’s upcoming album, I Loved You At Your Darkest – set for release on 5th October via Nuclear Blast.  While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, the origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves.  “It’s a verse from the Bible,” Nergal reveals. “It’s actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself.  For BEHEMOTH to use it as the basis of our record, it’s sacrilege to the extreme.”

BEHEMOTH will also be in London for an in-store signing at 5.30pm on album release day, Friday 5th October at HMV, 363 Oxford Street, W1.  Further details are available at hmv.co/Behemoth.
