One of these days I'll probably give them another listen. I haven't really bothered listening to a whole lot of them.

I can see where you're coming from. Although I would recommend AT LEAST giving Behemoth's Demigod album a spin (from start-to-finish) at least once. A lot of Behemoth's earlier stuff does get a little monotonous after a while. And also, Demigod has some of that somewhat catchy extreme brutality Cannibal Corpse is known for. Or, even better, listen to the songs I posted on this thread!

The second time I saw them was last April with Watain and In Solitude. It was awesome because the venue they were playing at is run by money-whores, so they kept letting people in after the show sold-out to the point where it was shoulder-to-shoulder lol

My FAVORITE songs by Behemoth include: Demigod, Before The Ćons Came, As Above so Below, Satan's Sword, and XUL.

And finally...my all-time favorite song by them (I just realized that it was) LISTEN TO THE WHOLE THING, 2:05 is where the brutality starts:


Behemoth- The Reign Ov Shemsu-Hor - YouTube
Thank you for the songs and for your descriptions of the two Behemoth concerts you've been to. I can imagine a little how it felt to be there, based on your descriptions.

I've actually seen one Behemoth concert, but on YouTube. So I got in free. And there wasn't much of a crowd.

Behemoth - Bloodstock Open Air 2012 - Full live performance

The brutality of Behemoth's music and other metal music is what makes it appeal to me. I'm glad when groups make music that reflects the brutality of nature and of people, because acknowledging the horrors that are part of real life is the first step in dealing with them.

I hadn't realized until yesterday that lead singer Nergal is a cancer survivor. Seeing cancer in action, like a slow-motion explosion of a person's body from the inside out, does remind one of the brutality of nature. It sounds like Nergal finds catharsis through music.

The Behemoth song that sticks in my mind, mostly because of the disturbing and theatrical video, is "Alas, Lord is Upon Me":


Behemoth - Alas, Lord is Upon Me CENSORED - YouTube

Finally, you mentioned you also like classical. So I am wondering how you feel about Prokofiev's "Dance of the Knights." I'm thinking you would like it for its somber power (constrasting with gentler, beautiful sections...like the contrast between darkness and light):

Because I'm a metalhead and listen to very intense music, most of the classical music that I've been attracted to have been Russian symphonies. Full-blown symphonies are what I have a soft-spot for (I love string instruments). Soo stuff like Stravinsky, Beethoven, etc. I'm also a huge fan of Franz Lizt<3 When it comes to Mozart, I'm a sucker for his later works, especially his last five or so symphonies. Most of what I have in my collection is Beethoven because my Dad got me a 10-disc set of his material. I love that video, great song. Although I'm really into classical already, I'm still looking to increase the size of my classical collection. You should create a thread in the classical section and we could swap artists and you could recommend some stuff to me!

I thought the Russian composers might appeal to you!

About Beethoven, I remember hearing a comment that if he had been alive today, he probably would have been playing heavy metal music, because he liked orchestrating for massive orchestras to produce crushing, powerful sound.

That's nice your dad gave you a Beethoven boxed CD set. I think you probably know and have heard more classical music than I have! So I'm not sure how many recommendations I could make for you. But I hope when you find pieces you like, you'll write about them in the classical section.

Your mentioning Franz Liszt reminded me of this old performance of "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2":


Victor Borge - Franz Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody #2 - YouTube



I think my favorite Mozart symphony is No. 25 because its first movement sounds troubled, intense, and suspenseful, but I haven't heard all his symphonies, so I'm not sure. Your post reminds me that one of these days, I should listen to all 41 of them! Like you, I also love string instruments.


Mozart - Symphony No.25 K183 (by Bernstein) - YouTube


I'm sure you must have heard Vivaldi's Four Seasons already, but *just* in case you haven't, here's "Winter," which I like once again because of its intensity and somber but beautiful feeling:




Oh! And I know you like symphonies, but what do you think of THIS piano etude by Chopin? I love the power of the strong, low notes contrasting with the delicacy of the right hand:

Chopin - Etude Op. 10, No. 1
Performed by Ashkenazy

Just curious if you've ever listened to Anaal Nathrakh. They play a black metal/grindcore hybrid but without having the tinny production. Their lyrics are apparently all about nihilism and man's ability to destroy himself and the world around him. They sound right up your alley, though maybe a bit much for somebody not immersed in extreme metal.



Damn it! I just looked for the lyrics to the song, but apparently no one has them. Well, whatevs. The name of the song is "When Humanity Is Cancer". so I'm sure you can guess what the song is about.
