Apple! Photos! Caca Demona!

The opening track from SATANICA, "Decade of Therion", once became a hit in the Polish speaking part of the web due to a silly yet amusing misheard lyrics video. To this day, the very thought of it gives me a chuckle. Anyway, the fourth album by this Polish band was the first one to truly embrace the sound of blackened death metal, and was a natural evolution from death-tinged PANDEMONIC INCANTATIONS.

I have never been a big fan of Behemoth. Their composition style from later albums relies too much on sheer brutality enhanced by layered guitars, distorted vocals and extremely aggressive and mechanical drumming. SATANICA, however, is a transitional album that contains almost everything that have ever been good about this band. Organic production and dirty, a little blackish sound works perfectly with dark and aggressive blackened death metal riffs. And what an atmosphere Nergal & Co have created here! Distinct apocalyptic feel is the highlight of SATANICA.

Fairly original, well-written and most of all, very atmospheric album and a must-have for Nile and Deicide fans. Recommendable to death and black metal fans alike, as there's much to discover and appreciate for both.
Warthur
Behemoth's musical transformation from Poland's answer to the Norwegian black metal masters into a blackened death metal powerhouse is completed on the taut and muscular Satanica, on which the band finally sound as confident and capable playing their Morbid Angel and Deicide-influenced brand of death metal as they did playing black metal in the Norwegian style on their earlier albums. With furious vocals, intense guitar solos, taut drumming and tight songwriting, it might not redefine the death metal game, but it announces Behemoth as a brand new player on the scene, worth watching closely. On top of that, it's catchy as all hell.
