Nergal reveals more info about the track in the first part of the “Ilyayd” interview series

Behemoth

Behemoth mastermind Nergal says:

“God=Dog” is maybe one of the most extreme songs on the new record.

He reveals more info about the track in the first part of the “Ilyayd” interview series. Watch the piece here:

“I Loved You At Your Darkest”is produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshugah, In Flames), mixing by Matt Hyde (Slayer, COB) mastering by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa.

Watch the video for  “God=Dog” below:

 

Nergal declares about the band’s upcoming album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest”:

It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this.

While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, its origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves.

Nergal reveals:

It’s a verse from the Bible. 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.

A crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema, “I Loved You At Your Darkest” is the group’s most dynamic record yet: extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release.
