Acclaimed Polish blackened death metallers Behemoth have announced "In Absentia Dei," described as "a groundbreaking immersive livestream spectacular" which will broadcast on September 5th, 2020 from a secret church location in Poland!
The event will be streamed in high definition 4K, with an immersive experience option, allowing viewers to choose from 8 different camera angles in the multi-camera shoot or watch the "Director’s Cut."
Special guests at the event will be mysterious black metal avant gardeists, Imperial Triumphant, whose set will come from The Slipper Room in New York City.
Behemoth frontman and visionary, Nergal informs us: "We bring a new offering for our faithful Legions! You’ve seen Behemoth in many places across the globe, but never before in the Holy Church. This is a truly innovative event of which the likes have not been seen before. There will be ritual, there will be sacrilege and all from the comfort of your home. A worldwide streamed event for A New Aeon indeed! In Absentia Dei."
"In Absentia Dei" will also feature an hour long pre-show (which can be viewed for free on Behemoth's YouTube channel) commencing at 1pm EST / 10am PST, with the full 2 hour show beginning at 2pm EST / 11am PST.
We're told parts of the performance may offend, so the footage is only recommended for fans 18+.
