Behemoth’s recent intimate set from The House Of Strombo is now available to watch in full. The band were guests on the long-running Strombo Show, which is hosted by Canadian radio presenter George Stroumboulopoulos – and the intense and intimate seven-song performance was filmed and can be watched inside.
During the film’s intro, vocalist and guitarist Nergal says:
“Behemoth’s all about loneliness. They defined it as evil. We, free-thinking people, artists, we think the opposite. We think we should embrace all of it.
If I even try and keep that within, I would just burst out or just die of intoxication. What I can promise is that I cannot ever stop being myself – and this is myself.”
