Behemoth Release ‘Ben Sahar’ Music Video
Behemoth's instant classic The Satanist has been out for over two years now, but the Polish death merchants are still in full support mode. The band is renowned for their extensive use of visuals to convey the deeper meaning behind the music and the release of Behemoth music videos come with high anticipation. The latest song to get rounded out by the medium is the riff-heavy "Ben Sahar" as band leader Nergal wanders vast, rolling hills.
The video opens up with Nergal's outstretched arms spliced in with images of the scene. The frontman is dressed like a vagrant, closely resembling Carl McCoy of Fields of the Nephilim whom Nergal has joined onstage. With a staff in hand topped by a skull, he traverses the plains as grim figures cloaked in white look on alongside the re-occurring horned creature dressed in black. The group of four figures in white take him in as flames pan over the screen. He carries on as images of Tarot cards flash in between the shots of the wandering Nergal reaching an undisclosed stone building, staff still in hand.
Behemoth will be performing The Satanist in its entirety on their upcoming tour with avant-garde black metal outfit Myrkur serving as the sole support act. Nergal spoke about the upcoming trek, stating, “We’ve always pushed ourselves very hard trying to reach the highest peaks of artistic creativity. This time around, we are not only coming back to perform The Satanist in its entirety, but are also bringing along a collaboration that’s unheard of!” An art exhibit dubbed "The Congregation" will be on display at each show, which will highlight the work of Behemoth's artistic partner Toxic Vision.
