Hey all you leather-jacket wearing, denim-jean ripping, pit-circle moshing, long-hair whipping, tattoo-covered mother effers”¦..it’s Christmas time! And you know what that means, it’s time to show those mangy metalheads in your life some appreciation by buying them gifts and stuff.
Now I know you probably don’t know nothing about no gift giving, which is why I’m here. That’s right, your good old metal mama is going to recommend some great gifts that you can give your metalhead friends without even having to get up from the computer. Okay, ready? Here goes…
As the world continues to reel from the loss of visionary rock icon David Bowie, who succumbed to liver cancer at the age of 69 on January 10, 2016, we here at GoD thought it appropriate to devote today’s Massive Metal Monday to a very metal cover of one of his tunes.
This past Tuesday (my birthday… woo hoo!), Polish metal superstars Behemoth gave us a brand new official video for the title track of their epic masterpiece album The Satanist. Watch the video here below!
The album was released in May of 2014 to widespread critical acclaim. It received a 92 out of 100 from Metacritic, making it one of the highest scoring metal albums of all time. It topped many a critic’s year end list, landing in the second place slot on my own best of list.
Polish blackened death metal legends Behemoth have just released a Hellish and surreal clip for the third single from their critically-acclaimed masterpiece The Satanist.
The video is for the track “Messe Noire” and is a tribute to the art of the late, great H.R, Giger who passed away last year. Giger’s ties to the metal community were deep rooted and Behemoth offer a tip of the hat to his Hellish visions in the new clip.
“Christians To The Lions” is the sixth track off of Thelema 6, the fifth studio album by Polish juggernauts Behemoth. Check out the clip here below of Behemoth performing “Christians to the Lions” live somewhere around 2004.
Ever since the release of the album Thelema 6 in the year 2000, the aforementioned track has been the central manifesto of nearly every live performance that the band has done. The song’s anti-religion message is a perfect summary of the philosophical stance that has, at times, gotten Behemoth leader Adam “Nergal” Darski into hot water. Darski was charged with causing offense to religion when he ripped the pages out of a bible at a live show in Poland. He was later acquitted of the charges.
