BEHEMOTH recently joined forces with director Zev Deans ( youtube.com/panoramaprogramming) to collaborate on the creation of a video for the track ‘Messe Noire’, taken from the band’s latest album The Satanist. The Brooklyn based director brings a visually dark and surreal atmosphere to a song and album that is one of BEHEMOTH’s most bleak. To add to the atmosphere, the costumes were provided by amazing alternative fashion designer, Sharon Toxic ( toxicvision.bigcartel.com).

Director Zev Deans adds: “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 front man 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!”
