Behemoth - "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel"

New MusicadminComment

With the release of this new Behemoth song comes the announcement of the Polish black metal band's next record, The Satanist. The album is currently looking at a February 3rd release date on Nuclear Blast, and the track that's just been dropped has a symphonic quality to it. The band's busy drums, grim riffs, and abrasive vocals show Behemoth sticking to their guns, but the added vocals, strings, and horns add a nice touch. While Behemoth isn't the first and won't the the last to incorporate lavish instrumentation into extreme metal, I thought this instance was well-executed. Enjoy!
