You’ve seen Behemoth in many places across the globe, but never before in the Holy Church,” says Behemoth frontman and visionary Nergal. “This is a truly innovative event of which the likes have not been seen before. There will be ritual, there will be sacrilege and all from the comfort of your home. A worldwide streamed event for A New Aeon indeed! In Absentia Dei.”
