Polish extreme metal heavyweights Behemoth just announced that they will release the first song off their new album titled The Satanist digitally and on vinyl only. The first single to be revealed will be "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel". The Grupa 13 produced a video for the song which will be released on December 4th. You can watch a teaser now below.
The group's new album was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. The Satanist was mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Metallica, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art, which will also be revealed on December 4th, is a painting by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas. For the cover, Nergal's own blood was included in the paint. Additional artwork was handled by Metastazis and Zbigniew Bielak.

There is no difference between Behemoth and Dimmu Borgir videos...
Nah, the Dimmu ones are excessively ridiculous, and on purpose I believe. Behemoth retains a bit of seriousness and at least don't intend you to laugh at their videos, even if you are in your right to do so.
