Behemoth have announced their twelfth studio album Opvs Contra Natvram, due for release on 16th September 2022 via Nuclear Blast

“The album title means going against the current,” Nergal explains. “It’s the negative of the values and morals and ethics that I stand against. I’ve seriously been wrestling with destructive tendencies in pop culture – cancel culture, social media, and tools which I feel are very dangerous weapons in the hands of people who are not competent to judge others. That’s something which I find very destructive and disturbing – and extremely limiting coming from an artists’ perspective. This is my middle finger to that. There’s a song on the record called Neo-Spartacvs. Spartacus was one of the most iconic rebels in history who went against the most powerful empire of all time. In the end, it’s me screaming, ‘I Am Spartacus, and so are you!’ I want to spark that flame of rebellion. If something seems wrong then stand up to it!”

The band have also released a video for their new single Ov My Herculean Exile. 

Opvs Contra Natvram is available to pre-order in various formats HERE
