Behemoth – “Demonica”

“Demonica” 2CD
(Metal Blade)

Going on 20 years old this year, Poland’s Behemoth commemorate their 20th anniversary with the release of this 23 track double CD boxset, which is limited to 10,000 copies and comes digibook slipcase complete with a 44-page book including rare photos and lyrics. There is also an even more limited double vinyl pressing available as a gatefold of 250 copies! The tracks are a mixture of unreleased material, ‘alternate’ versions of ‘Blackvisions of the Almighty’ and ‘Pure Evil & Hate’ and a re-recorded ‘Spellcraft & Heathendom’. Given it sources right back to the bands early history, most of the material is pure black metal rather than the blackened death style that has popularized the band in more recent times, so perhaps “Demonica” might be one more for the purists and die hards out there….?
