Behemoth will unveil the full experience of The Satanist in DVD and Blu-ray form. The black metal titans’ Messe Noire live release will feature two full shows where The Satanist was performed in full from front to back.

In 2014, Behemoth unleashed their 10th studio album to universal praise. The band’s first since frontman Nergal successfully defeated cancer, The Satanist became one of the definitive metal albums of the 2010s, capturing grotesque anti-theist malevolence with unparalleled realism and sophistication. Behemoth began playing The Satanist in full on tour, drawing the largest crowds of their career and staging their most theatrical performances to date.

For Messe Noire, the Polish band captured a 2016 hometown performance in Warsaw, adding six extra songs beyond the full Satanist album. Behemoth’s 2016 set at the Brutal Assault festival was also put to film for Messe Noire. Beyond the live gigs, Messe Noire will include six terrifying music videos for Satanist tracks, including a yet unseen clip for “O Father O Satan O Sun!”

"Messe Noire. Well, that is everything that the Behemoth live magick represents, and we're stoked that we have a true representation on record for everyone out there to enjoy," says frontman Nergal. "Messe Noire captures the true intensity of what we do as a band and the energy we share with our fans. This is also an exclamation mark, the perfect way to conclude The Satanist cycle which has been an overwhelming experience and amazing chapter in Behemoth's career and our lives so far! By the release of Messe Noire we would like to hail our legions all around the world for undying support! Now let the art speak..."

Messe Noire will be unleashed worldwide on April 13, with a number of pre-order bundles currently being offered at Behemoth’s web store. The band is even offering a free download of a live version of “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” at their pre-order page (you get the download in exchange for giving Behemoth a “like” on Facebook).

Check out a trailer for Messe Noire in the video above and keep your eyes open for Behemoth’s 11th studio album, which the band say that they are diligently working on.
