Ever the creative innovators, Poland’s extreme metal overlords BEHEMOTH! have revealed their latest visual feast, Opvs Contra Cvltvram, a streaming event shot on the roof of Warsaw’s renowned Palace of Culture & Science and premiering at 18.00 CET, Thursday 15th September on the band’s YouTube channel. This landmark event heralds the arrival this Friday 16th September of the band’s epic 12th studio album, Opvs Contra Natvram.
BEHEMOTH’s leader and artistic alchemist, Adam ‚Nergal‘ Darski, informs:
„Legions! We have gathered atop Poland’s infamous Palace of Culture to perform four brand new tracks from our record Opvs Contra Natvram, released this Friday! For a long time, BEHEMOTH have been censored and pursued by the Catholic Church at the behest of our fascist government. This performance, with the backdrop of this building, represents a monumentous middle finger to those pigs and another for Joseph Stalin and his Soviet circle-jerk. Viva Freedom!“
The band’s upcoming 12th studio album is a stark reminder of the rebellion, individuality and unflinching self-expression that BEHEMOTH’s phenomenal work inbues, shaped by a literary worldview. It also reflects a musical evolution, as there’s little doubt that Opvs Contra Natvram is BEHEMOTH’s strongest and most sophisticated musical collection to date.

BEHEMOTH are not only the creators of Poland’s extreme metal scene, but they are masters of their vision and showcase what a band can achieve when the brakes are off. With Opvs Contra Natvram they have created 10 fresh chapters, created at a very strange time for the world. Their goal to create something new, something that doesn’t sound like anything that has gone before, was an ambitious one.
As with previous studio outings, Opvs… was produced by BEHEMOTH, with mixing by studio legend Joe Barresi (Nine Inch Nails, Tool, QOTSA, Alice in Chains).
Nergal informs the band’s ‚Legions‘;
„BEHEMOTH are coming with new music and new stage shenanigans…a spectacle worth waiting for. We’ll see you there!“
