Death metal legion Behemoth have released a video for the track “Messe Noire” taken from their latest effort, The Satanist (read The Satanist review).

The band joined forces with director Zev Deans for the video and costumes were provided by fashion designer Sharon Toxic.

Director Zev Deans said: “The story of Lucifer’s fall, followed by his defiant rebirth, reminds me of Nergal’s own personal struggles of recent years. Like Lucifer, Behemoth has recovered from hardship, and they are stronger than ever. With ‘Messe Noire’, I was lucky enough to work with some of the most talented people in the genre. I owe the success of this project to the intense sacrifice that Sharon and the rest of team gave to this work.”

Behemoth frontman Nergal comments: “It was actually our drummer Inferno’s idea to work with Zev Deans. He showed me a Portal video that literally blew my fuckin’ mind! For a long time we’ve attempted to reach a new ground and artistically leave the comfort zone. The Satanist is THE record that challenges us on so many levels… and here we are, exploring new grounds with a video producer who is a genuine visionary! The ‘Messe Noire’ video surely adds new quality to our art and makes it even more transcendental… I am proud!”
