Behemoth share live version of 'Bartzabel' from upcoming release
Official press release:
Just ahead of their monumental 30-year anniversary worldwide stream extravaganza this Halloween, Behemoth offer another taste from 2020's ground-breaking spectacle with the hauntingly beautiful "Bartzabel," taken from their upcoming audio-visual album, In Absentia Dei, out on December 17.
In Absentia Dei is the testimony to the band's pioneering vision during the height of our world closure. The Polish masters of extreme metal took over an abandoned church in rural Poland to perform a worldwide display of black metal magick. Relive it now!
Frontman Nergal previously stated that "In Absentia Dei was a massive challenge and a huge risk, but it was a great artistic and commercial success. The response was absolutely brilliant — we made a statement with this performance and set the bar high. I hope that we can continue to raise the bar with the projects to come!"
In Absentia Dei will be available as digital album, digibook, and 3LP vinyl in various colors. All triple LPs come with a premium 20-page booklet and a cut-out, build-at-home model of the actual church in which the band performed!
The event was said to set a new standard for streaming events in the future and this was something Behemoth set out to achieve from the start. Produced by Grupa 13, In Absentia Dei was presented as a show of four parts, woven with high-production theatrics and even hellish flames emanating from all parts of the sacred building.

"All triple LPs come with a premium 20-page booklet and a cut-out, build-at-home model of the actual church in which the band performed!" You know damn well these guys don't go to church
I'd much rather get the triple EP that contains the dismembered body parts of the band after they tried to play this shit in an "actual" mosque
love raising the bar with my audio-visual extreme metal album
