Behemoth: The Apostasy

I discovered Polish extreme/blackened death metal monsters Behemoth at the 2007 Ozzfest, where they literally turned the second stage area into a cyclone of dust.

Behemoth released The Apostasy that same year and it is a multi-dimensional album that incorporates elements not usually associated with music that is so massively heavy.

Choirs, horn sections, and pianos weave into the maelstrom of sound that Behemoth summons to produce the dark themes of The Apostasy.

Nergal, lead vocals/guitars, is the creative force of Behemoth, but the blast beats and inhuman battering ram drumming of Inferno, and the grinding bass onslaught of Orion drive the machine forward.

Behemoth have recently released a new album and I plan to acquire it soon, having heard excellent praise of it from several reliable sources.
