The 50 best albums of 2022
The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2022.
No-one goes full occult quite like Behemoth. From their incredible live show to their awesome art displays, the Polish death metal kings have always put black magic at the forefront of their imagery, and have always made incredible visual art a priority.
Today, the band has released their latest music video for Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica, a track from their new album I Loved You At Your Darkest. And while the video still utilizes strange, unsettling art, it does so with new purpose – rather than display the glory of Satan, the band showcases the grotesque face of Christianity. In this video, the church is a lumbering relic, Christ is a menacing masochist, and the only angel present is a fallen one bound and tortured.
See for yourself: check out Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica below.
