Behemoth kick off their European tour tonight in Frankfurt! After recently wrapping a North American headlining run with At The Gates and Wolves In The Throne Room opening, Behemoth are bringing this must-see show to these shores. In anticipation of the trek, the band has also launched a new video for “Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica”, taken from their latest album, I Loved You At Your Darkest.

Orion (bass & vocals) comments: “BEHEMOTH Legions! As this ILYAYD adventure continues onwards, we want to share a new video with you! Since we began the writing process, “Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica” was a stand-out contender to be featured as a single and music video. As the song evolved during rehearsal and recording, it gained this lively, furious vibe…which you hear now – thus, it includes live performance elements which we’ve not done in quite some time. We are happy to work with Grupa13 once again – and once again, they showed their super-professional approach at every step of the shooting and video production. Two separate locations, hours of preparation, but it was all worth it. In absentia dei, we evangelize! Enjoy!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
