Behemoth Posts New Video “Bartzabel” Online

Before unleashing their eagerly awaited new album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest” this Friday, Behemoth have released the brand new single “Bartzabel.”

Mastermind Nergal comments: “‘Bartzabel’ is a song that came in the midst of a Behemoth rehearsal… We had no structure, no vision – but piece by piece, it came to be, and we were extremely excited by the result. To us, it’s the eye of the ‘ILYAYD’ storm: sonically calmer and slower than anything else on the record, but definitely one of the darkest!

“Lyrically, we (myself and Krzysztof Azarewicz) were inspired by Aleister Crowley’s conjuration of the Spirit of Mars – which the video, by our trusted friends in Grupa 13, depicts beautifully…I may even go as far to say that it’s my favourite BEHEMOTH video of all time! I hope you all enjoy it, and we look forward to ‘ILYAYD”s launch this Friday!”

Promo Video For “Warrior Spirit” Posted By Mongol

Canadian folk met act Mongol issued a promo video for the song “Warrior Spirit.” The song will appear on the band’s upcoming debut album “The Return,” which will be issued later this year via Sliptrick Records. The song was originally issued on the debut EP “Warrior Spirit,” as well, and the songs from the EP will be included on “The Return.” More information on that will be issued soon.

Forged in the frozen bowels of Edmonton, Alberta, Mongol pays homage to the Mongolian Empire of old. Blending heavy melodic riffs, with an array of folk instruments, and Oriental harmonies, Mongol wields a sound as diverse as the nations their historical influences conquered.
