The track asserts a skilled mesh of punk and metal in it’s potent message of non-conformity.
Following the introduction of their 12th full length collection, Opvs Contra Natvram, with the epic lead single, “Ov My Herculean Exile.” Poland extreme metal powerhouse Behemoth have delivered a second showing from the album with the confrontational, “Off to War!”
Frontman and Behemoth architect Adam “Nergal” Darski shares his insights on the track, “Militant times bring militant music… we’re increasing the tempo with our new single, ‘Off To War!’ — one of my personal favorites from the new record. This song has a killer punk section, one of the greatest Behemoth leads of all time, and a nice extreme metal twist at the end. A true sonic tornado in times of confrontation — enjoy it, legions!!”
The most recent offering from the album showcases the band’s unwavering commitment to progression, continuously defying the boundaries of extreme art both in style and in execution. The self-produced effort again sees the band team with Joe Barresi (Nine Inch Nails, Tool, QOTSA, Alice in Chains) to complete the studio mix and fully develop the band’s immersive sound.
For the latest offering in, “Off To War!,” the track doubles as an impassioned manifesto of non-conformity, further reiterated with the accompanying visual, directed by Påhl Sundström and Erik Sundström, that highlights how Behemoth have leveled up the artistry of musical extremity.
Opvs Contra Natvram, arrives via Nuclear Blast on September 16. Pre-order the album – HERE.
