Black Metal Band Behemoth took over an abandoned church in rural Poland to perform a worldwide streaming event in the midst of the pandemic lockdown. More than a year later, the performance of In Absentia Dei returns in a range of formats for fans to relive. It arrives from Metal Blade on December 17th 2021.
Frontman Nergal states about the new video:
“Legions! For some of you, The Apostasy is the ultimate BEHEMOTH experience. Here, we present to you a song from that record which we filmed during In Absentia Dei. Enjoy it!”
The original show was produced by Grupa 13, and In Absentia Dei was presented as a show in four parts, woven with “high-production theatrics and even hellish flames emanating from all parts of the sacred building”.
