"It doesn't get more blasphemous than this." That's Behemoth mastermind Nergal talking about the title of the band's 11th and latest album, I Loved You At Your Darkest. While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band - especially one that called their last album The Satanist - its origin might surprise you even more than the words themselves. "It's a verse from the Bible," Nergal reveals. "It's actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For Behemoth to use it as the basis of our record, it's sacrilege to the extreme." Of course, Behemoth are no strangers to blasphemy. Over the course of the last 27 years, they've pushed the boundaries of black metal and heresy alike. While anti-Christian sentiment might seem like stale bread where most metal bands are concerned, for Behemoth such ideas represent a very real threat to their physical freedom. Time and again, the government of their native Poland has charged them with various "crimes" such as tearing up a bible onstage in 2007 and using the Polish coat of arms on a Behemoth t-shirt in 2017.
