Behemoth - Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel

Now I'm gonna throw this out there.  This is a horrible song.  This is dark, vulgar, and the video has satanic imagery and mild nudity.  Ok then, here goes.  You have been warned.

Behemoth is the band.  They are considered to be the most evil band out there right now by a good many people, and for good reason.

Forming in 1991, their themes ranged mostly on paganism, though in recent years they have turned toward satanic content (as that is what's "in" right now).

They were also one of the first (or the first) band(s) to be banned from Russia.

The lead singer and guitarist Nergal did almost die of leukemia in 2010, but did manage to make a full recovery though his doctors told him he was beyond healing.  A bone marrow transplant and many other such procedures later, Nergal went home in January of 2011, and by summer was up and going again.

One actually funny thing about the bad is that their corpse paint is just toothpaste.  That is all that the base of it is.  There is some black around the edges as well, but seriously, who is ingenious enough to use toothpaste?  It's literally everywhere too, so it's not like their gonna run out.

As much as it pains me to admit it, I really like the sound these guys have.  They have good solid musical talent and a really good sound.  Still, It's just a little too much for me to take a lot of the time.

On a side note, Nuclear Blast records has some of the best bands I've heard in a while.
