Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH have released a music video for the song "Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica". The clip was directed by BEHEMOTH's longtime visual collaborators Grupa 13.
"Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica" is taken from BEHEMOTH's latest album, "I Loved You At Your Darkest", which was released in October via Metal Blade Records in North America and Nuclear Blast in Europe.
Unlike "The Satanist", which was primarily recorded in one studio, "I Loved You At Your Darkest" saw its production spread across Poland and the United States. It was produced by the bandmembers themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES), mixing by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM) and mastering by Tom Baker (NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON). Which is to say nothing of the 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa and engineered by Tomasz Budkiewicz.
Commented BEHEMOTH bassist Orion: "BEHEMOTH legions! As this 'I Loved You At Your Darkest' adventure continues onwards, we want to share a new video with you!
"Since we began the writing process, 'Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica' was a stand-out contender to be featured as a single and music video. As the song evolved during rehearsal and recording, it gained this lively, furious vibe... which you hear now — thus it includes live performance elements which we've not done in quite some time.
"We are happy to work with Grupa 13 once again — and once again, they showed their super-professional approach at every step of the shooting and video production. Two separate locations, hours of preparation, but it was all worth it. In absentia dei, we evangelize! Enjoy!"
