Above you will find a teaser for the new Behemoth video "Alas The Lord Is Upon Me" off their latest release, Evangelion. The video was directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz, the mastermind behind some of their previous epic videos. As you could tell from the behind the scenes video that surfaced last week, this was all cinematic with no visual effects. This video is going to be insane. I can't wait to see it.
In related news, charges Behemoth frontman Nergal have been dropped in connection with a September 2007 incident when he reportedly called the Catholic Church "the most murderous cult on the planet" and proceeded to rip apart a bible. Blabbermouth reports:
[Adam] Darski [aka Nergal] was formally charged on March 8 for insulting Roman Catholics (offending somebody's religious feelings is a criminal offense under Polish law). He would have faced 2 years in prison had he been found guilty of the charges.
According to a posting on BEHEMOTH's MySpace page, "During the preparatory proceedings, the defender filed the application which was entirely accepted by the Court. The defendant's behavior wasn't recognized as a crime. Moreover, the Court acknowledged no causal connection/cause-and-effect relationship between Adam Darski's behavior and the consequence in a form of outrage of religious emotions."
