Behemoth have unleashed a Zuzanna Plisz-directed video for their brand new single “Ov My Herculean Exile.” The track is taken from these Polish blackened death metal giants’ upcoming twelfth full-length effort, Opvs Contra Natvram, which is scheduled to arrive on September 16th via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2018’s I Loved You at Your Darkest, was produced by the band, with mixing handled by Joe Barresi (Nine Inch Nails, Tool, etc). The group had more time to reflect and work on the album due to the state of the world over the last two years with the COVID-19 pandemic as the band’s mastermind Adam “Nergal” Darski explains:

“The album title means going against the current. It’s the negative of the values and morals and ethics that I stand against. I’ve seriously been wrestling with destructive tendencies in pop culture — cancel culture, social media, and tools which I feel are very dangerous weapons in the hands of people who are not competent to judge others. That’s something which I find very destructive and disturbing — and extremely limiting coming from an artists’ perspective. This is my middle finger to that. There’s a song on the record called ‘Neo-Spartacvs.’ Spartacus was one of the most iconic rebels in history who went against the most powerful empire of all time. In the end, it’s me screaming, ‘I Am Spartacus, and so are you!’ I want to spark that flame of rebellion. If something seems wrong then stand up to it!”
