"We are the ending ov all days We are the next 1000 years!" - BEHEMOTH
This year on Halloween night, the veil between the two worlds will not only get thinner for the spirits of the otherworld to enter. This year, it will be torn down and set to fire by the black magick of Extreme Metal masters BEHEMOTH. Today, the band announces their global livestream Moment "XXX Years Ov Blasphemy" broadcasting on October 31st worldwide.
"30 years of blasphemy and bring on 30 more! What better night than All Saint’s Eve to celebrate this most unholy anniversary than with us as we present the most ambitious project of our career to date, ’30 Years of Blasphemy’. Legions, when I say this is the ultimate cinematic Behemoth experience, I cannot express how much I mean that. Another huge risk for us but as always, we go feet first and push our limits. The result will be a sight to behold. We’ll see you in The Forest…and more."
Celebrating their 30th anniversary, the band from Poland will grace their own birthday ceremony with a black mass that will unleash the darkest of all forces and make this Halloween a night to remember - hosted by Moment House and directed by maestro Dariusz Szermanowicz (G13 Production House), the event will comprise three sets.
With each set, BEHEMOTH will move further in their glorious history of thirty years and focus on each decade, starting at their early steps with pagan and black metal influenced records like Pandemonic Incantations to their international breakthroughs The Apostasy and Evangelion up to their most recent masterpiece I Loved You At Your Darkest that was released in 2019.
Three times, BEHEMOTH are set to invoke demons from the past and explore the depths of their discography.
The pre-sale for "XXX Years Ov Blasphemy" is now on, early bird tickets with a 20% discount are available until 5PM CEST, Friday, October 15th, where it will switch to standard pricing. The event comes with a completely new merch drop including shirts, longsleeves, hoodies, screen prints, hip flasks and socks - the first 500 merch customers will receive a free 'Burning Cross' Sticker.

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 BEHEMOTH's upcoming audio-visual album, In Absentia Dei, out on December 17th via Nuclear Blast Records.
In Absentia Dei is the testimony of 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!

Nergal stated earlier about "In Absentia Dei", "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 colours. All Nuclear Blast triple LPs come with a premium 20-page booklet AND a cut-out, build at home model of the actual church that BEHEMOTH performed in.
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 a hellish-flames emanating from all parts of the sacred building.
BEHEMOTH released their latest full-length, I Loved You At Your Darkest, in 2018 to vast critical acclaim. I Loved You At Your Darkest marked a milestone in the history of the band, being not only their most successful album, but also an audio-visual masterpiece: from its detailed, blasphemous artwork, to the highly vicious, yet deeply emotional tracks, BEHEMOTH once again played with fire - and ignited a wildfire burning the narrow minded bigotry of Christianity down to the ground.
