Behemoth unveil the sinister, cinematic visual for "Once Upon A Pale Horse"

Behemoth unveil the sinister, cinematic visual for "Once Upon A Pale Horse"

- By Ramon Gonzales

The Polish powerhouse will begin a run of European festival dates before embarking on a U.S. tour supporting Danzig.

One of the most celebrated extreme metal releases of 2022, Opvs Contra Natvram was hailed as a stunning artistic achievement for Polish outfit Behemoth. The landmark twelfth album spearheaded by Adam Nergal Darski was fueled by the potency of colossal singles like "Ov My Herculean Exile" and the confrontational "Off To War!" while delivering a succession of powerful visuals that asserted the visionary depth of the contemporary black metal champions.

Nearly a year since the arrival of the album, the enduring quality of the presentation is becoming especially evident as the band continue to showcase new content from the project. Behemoth have unveiled yet another music video from Opvs Contra Natvram with the debut of "Once Upon A Pale Horse".

Again opting to work with revolutionary extreme metal auteurs Grupa13 and animator Anton "strss893" Pavsyuk, the latest clip showcases Behemoth in all of their blasphemous glory in a cut that asserts a stylized take on the sinister. (The sold gold stakes that are hammered through Jesus' wrists say it all.)

The visual lands as the band prepare to embark on a summer touring slate that includes various festival appearances including confirmed performances at Hellfest in France, Tons of Rock in Norway and Resurrection Fest in Spain to name a few.

Behemoth was also recently confirmed to join Danzig for a legendary run that will include a full performance of Danzig's 1988 solo debut. The trek will include additional support from Midnight and Twin Temple and will conclude on September 17th in Chicago, IL.
