The Satanist by Behemoth
Released: Feb 2014
Label: Metal Blade Records
Here's some good old spooky devil worship from the Polish black metal veterans, masterfully done. The mulch is given a dense, spacious mix that moves well and lets you appreciate the details -- horror moans from the catacombs, backwards masked and/or Latin Black Mass recitations, guitar unafraid of wah-wah ("Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel") or classic-rock soloing ("The Satanist"), occasional industrial-like clacking deep below ("Amen"). "In the Absence ov Light" has a heavily accented spoken part that's almost moving, and "O Father O Satan O Sun!" climaxes in some ecstatic Luciferian rapture.
