‘Versvs Christvs’ is BEHEMOTH’s new video, a song that is part of their latest album “Opvs Contra Natvram”
Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH have released the official music video for “Versvs Christvs”, a riveting extended track featuring piano and clean vocals. The song is taken from the band’s twelfth studio album, Opvs Contra Natvram, which was released on September 16.
BEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski comments on the track: “Legions! Thanks for the amazing response to the new record! wow! It feels extremely validating and liberating to have you with us. And now we present the crown jewel ‘Versvs Christvs’. This video was the first time we worked with the incredible director Agata Alexander, a Pole from Los Angeles whose vision and execution created this spectacular result. A special thanks to our friends at Grupa 13, who collaborated in the production. Enjoy this, Legions.”
The band’s latest studio album is a stark reminder of the rebellion, individuality and unflinching self-expression that permeates BEHEMOTH’s phenomenal work, shaped by a literary worldview. It also reflects a musical evolution, as there is no doubt that “Opvs Contra Natvram” is BEHEMOTH’s strongest and most sophisticated musical collection to date.
Like previous studio efforts, “Opvs Contra Natvram” was produced by BEHEMOTH, with mixing by studio legend Joe Barresi (NINE INCH NAILS, TOOL, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ALICE IN CHAINS).
“Opvs Contra Natvram” features dual cover art available in both black and white and will be released in a number of physical formats designed by Bartek Rogalewicz (Lodge.Black), sure to excite limited edition collectors.
Along with the album release, BEHEMOTH has released a wretched but addictive pocket game alongside Spotify, operable on mobile or computer, which you can explore here. Users should strive to keep the virtual cross in balance for as long as possible. If you take your eyes off the game for a second, it’s game over. Top scoring entrants have a chance to win a pair of tickets to BEHEMOTH’s upcoming tour “The European Siege” with ARCH ENEMY, CARCASS and UNTO OTHERS in the city of their choice.
Nergal recently admitted to Australia’s Wall Of Sound that he felt a certain degree of restlessness and repetition ahead of the release of this new album.
“First of all, I always do things myself, but I think about the reception and stuff, of course,” he said. “Recognition is important to me; maintaining status is important to me; everything is very important to me.
“I deeply hope that people will like this new album. Of course, it’s the twelfth album; I’ve already done it.
«I have no problem talking freely with people about music, about content, about everything; I have learned it perfectly, really », he added. “A lot of that stuff is repetitive, okay? So don’t get me wrong: I don’t want to sound like a bored musician talking to another interviewer; each interview is always different. It’s like having sex with several partners: each time it’s different. But you need interaction, you need a fan base, you need followers, you need a reaction from people for this – and it’s getting worse and worse these days.”
