Polish extreme metal titans BEHEMOTH have completed their new video for the track "Prometherion", shot by acclaimed director Soren (ALL THAT REMAINS, UNEARTH). The clip is a frenetic, savage performance based video that perfectly showcases the band's unrelenting energy and uncompromising vision. Click here for a sneak peek as to what insanity awaits. Look for the complete version to be posted online in the coming weeks.
Commented frontman Nergal: "I expect this to be an incredible video. Soren did an incredible job. I really love working with people who are so serious about what they do. I'm really happy with all the videos we did for the previous album, but this time I wanted to make sure we took a different approach. We decided to pick up one of the most intense songs from 'The Apostasy' to promote this record. If we did opposite, and chose a mid tempo, radio friendly one it'd be exactly what we did for the 'Demigod' album cycle. With 'The Apostasy' we are making a clear statement about what this band is all about: to bring danger and evil back to the music! I bet the video for 'Prometherion' will undoubtedly prove that. Enjoy the trailer for now, and get ready for the final version soon. It will dominate!"
Fan-filmed video footage of BEHEMOTH performing the song "Demigod" on July 27, 2007 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado has been posted on YouTube.
BEHEMOTH's new album, "The Apostasy", debuted at #149 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with first-week sales of around 5,000. This entry also marks Century Media's fifth highest The Billboard 200 debut.
BEHEMOTH has been hailed as this year's Ozzfest breakthrough artist due primarily to their unrelenting energy, savage brutality and uncompromising vision. The group go onstage at 4:15 p.m. every day in the direct support, non-rotating slot right before second stage headliners HATEBREED, so fans can expect a lengthy set backed with their biggest stage production yet.
