Editorial Reviews

The Polish metal kings have returned with a new offering, The Apostasy, which is destined to become both the defining release of the band's career and one of the most revered and dynamic offerings the genre has seen in years. Behemoth will kick off their worldwide touring cycle with a second stage headlining spot on Ozzfest 2007.

Customer Reviews

Oh, by the way, anyone out there get a kick out of listening to a great percussion album?
Johnny M.
Track five "Kriegsphilosophie" features more slamming blast beats and double bass, driving riffs and shredding leads, as well as another pair of killer solos to boot.
Jeremy Brackeen
As odd as this will sound, "The Apostasy" is fairly listener-friendly (for a death metal album).

Great bands make great albums. Behemoth are living proof of this fact. This Polish quartet began their string of great albums in 1999, when they released "Satanica." Then they honed their sound for the next couple of albums (2000's "Thelema. 6" and 2002's "Zos Kia Cultus") before releasing the godly "Demigod" in 2005. This was a watershed release of sorts because it incorporated classical and ethnic influences (including Egyptian-like melody) into the band's patented brutality, making it the first experimental record of their career.

Now, two years later, Behemoth are continuing to expand their sound. This year's "The Apostasy" is a perfectly natural progression from "Demigod." Sure, it is still loaded with the typical, world-renowned Behemoth goodies: devastating dual guitar riffs, Slayer-inspired leads, Inferno's earth-shaking drum beats, Orion's powerful bass lines, and Nergal's raw, visceral roars. But at the same time, it also manages to be so experimental, challenging, unpredictable, and innovative that it would make fellow death metal icons Nile green with envy.

The highlights on hand here are many. "Slaying The Prophets Ov Isa," the first song after the intro, is a blastfest from beginning to end, and is one of Inferno's many moments in the spotlight. He sounds simply inhuman as he mercilessly beats the listeners eardrums with steamrolling, seemingly octolimbed trapkit obliteration. "Prometherion" continues down this same path with super chunky riffs, scorching leads, absolutely ridiculous drumming, and a booming outro.

"At The Left Hand Ov God" is the album's first curveball. It begins with a bit of tranquil flamenco plucking before segueing into brutal death metal territory with thunderous, driving double bass pummel and a superbly wailing solo.

Once again... Behemoth delivers a spectacular album... and continues to surprise the listeners with new elements. I really love the chants and soprano vocals among all the other 'middle eastern' sounding instruments... it adds a lot to the music. The guitar work and drumming still draws from the vein of Demigod, but it lookes like they drew a little bit from their Zaios Kon Kultos album *forgive me all you deadly serious fans if I spelled it wrong*. The vocals aren't as blended together like they were in Demigod, but still have that excellent growl that lets you knew 'yep... this be Nergal and crew....' I pretty much can't name a favorite here because every track is good... no let downs so far.

The metal gods have blessed us with two of the strongest metal releases of the year on the same day! The Apostasy is further evidence that Nergal and crew are playing for keeps. From the brutal metal instrumentation to the epic choir to the haunting piano work by Leszek Mozdzer on Inner Sanctum, this album is perfect. I'm pleased to see a return of Nergal's more raw and straight forward vocals. On Demigod, at times they seemed to be a little over processed. As with each release by Behemoth, I find myself once again amazed. This album, as well as Ithyphallic by co-metal giants, Nile, represents the pinnacle of death metal for 2007! Buy them both!

I don't know what the haters are all talking about, and I imagine I never will. Behemoth are going in the right direction with their music; eschewing the cheesy and extra-bland Black Metal genre in favor of a more brutal and punishing style that is hard to classify, and very hard to emulate. Many people compare new Behemoth to Nile, though both bands have their own original style, sharing only minute similarities.

Behemoth grabbed my attention with "Demigod", an album filled with an earth shattering technical metal that defied genres and marked Behemoth's departure from all Black Metal sounds. The greatness of 'Demigod" is so vast that many metal heads will struggle to realize its full potential years from now.

Behemoth's 2007 release, "The Apostasy", is definitely an epic, brutal, technical and amazing album worthy of the band who recorded it, and the perfect successor to "Demigod". Forging yet another amazing album, rife with their now standard ultra-heavy blend of Death Metal, Thrash, Technical Metal, and Middle Eastern tinged flavor, "The Apostasy" pummels its way into the "Best Metal of 2007"; and it certainly trumps anything the band has done before (save for the 2006 masterpiece "Demigod").

This time, Behemoth have incorporated an even more progressive blend of all things metal. The compositions are much tighter (much MUCH tighter), the thunderous riffs are even more pummeling, the solos more ripping and focused, and the drumming is as amazing and stunning as ever, if not more complex and mind shattering! Inferno is one of the best drummers alive; his drumming is entirely complex, original and vicious. Nergal's vocals are much harsher than on previous albums, but he's still got the fire!

With the release of "Demigod," Behemoth took death metal to a new level of musicianship, intricacy, creativity, speed, and brutality. Though Behemoth did not further raise the bar with "The Apostasy," this album further cements their status as one of the elite death metal bands of the current generation. Furthermore, "The Apostasy" is an excellent album for many reasons:

1) As with their previous three releases, "The Apostasy" displays the one element that (unfortunately) many death metal bands lack: distinctiveness between songs. Behemoth has an amazing ability to write very memorable songs that are distinct from one another. By this I mean, that the songs do not sound like one another. One of the biggest criticisms faced by death metal bands is that each of their songs sound similar to one another. Even as a fan of extreme metal, I have to admit that there is some degree of truth to this criticism. However, Behemoth does not fall into that category, as each of the songs on "The Apostasy" are clearly distinct entities from one another.

2) Excellent songwriting. As odd as this will sound, "The Apostasy" is fairly listener-friendly (for a death metal album). Don't get me wrong, those who do not like extreme metal will not like this album. But, for those who are looking to expand their horizons to more extreme metal, this is an excellent album to start with. Once again, Nergal, Orion, and Inferno are all in outstanding form on their respective instruments.

3) Perhaps one of the better aspects of "The Apostasy" is the fact that the vocals are not overproduced (like they were on "Demigod"). As much as I love "Demigod," the fact that the vocals were multilayered and dubbed over one another, made the album sound somewhat overproduced and artificial (as far as vocals go).
