The trials ov Behemoth were becoming taxing, it seemed, because behind the aggression and complexity was an idea that was slowly losing itself. The Satanist is an awakening, but not a complete conversion to a new sound. Behemoth take the time to craft a distinct mood and carry it throughout the entire record, rather than pummeling the listener for a while before suddenly attempting to care about atmosphere with an 8-minute epic that has absolutely no context.
There is a sense of artistic flair introduced here that makes things slow down and retreat from relying solely on unabated heaviness to drive the record forward. It is proficient in establishing mood and then evolving it as the record progresses, because while the first few tracks may seem a bit dull and directionless, over time things focus to a single, sharp point. Before long, the line between aggression and artistry becomes blurred, and it is then that The Satanist truly impresses.
Not only do the tempo shifts play off each other in near-perfect fashion, they help to introduce quite a distinct sense of variety for a band that so desperately needed it. The orchestras provide subtle opposition to crashing drums and deep, bellowing screams, while acoustic guitars accent their electric brethren with mellow, flowing undertones that give the sound a complexity unlike any other Behemoth record to date.
Granted, there are more than enough moments when the songwriting is not quite this bold, and that proves to be the Achilles heel of The Satanist.
So, it is no small wonder that the worst moments on the album come from Behemoth sounding like, well, classic Behemoth. The fact that Behemoth have realized that they can retain a large part of their brutality while introducing real, tangible atmosphere is the saving grace of The Satanist. Even the vocals find time to carry melody, like in the aforementioned title track.
Thankfully, then, The Satanist contains more of these heavy-hitters than it does filler. Cover art containing Nergal 's blood by Denis Forkas. Blackened death metal  symphonic black metal.

Ohio University Press. Retrieved March 28, Retrieved February 7, Few bands in the death and black metal genres take such a creative, entertaining, and successful approach to songwriting as Behemoth. What really sells the drama, however, is the savage voice of Nergal himself. This is his most commanding vocal performance to date, owing probably as much to his relentless personal determination as to the balanced mix that favors his bloodcurdling howls.
Such criticisms stem from my belief that one should not necessarily be rewarded or praised for stirring up controversy for its own sake, nor defended unequivocally when the expected criticism boomerangs back around notwithstanding the wrongness of censorship. At the end of the day, some people are simply begging for negative attention. Highs: The writing, performances, and production are creative, tight, and thrilling throughout. Behemoth has rarely sounded this fresh.
Lows: Lyricist Nergal's blatant satanic themes are distracting and verge on the ham-fisted.
