The Behemoth I listen to died somewhere in the end of the nineties. They sounded like this:

I see a lot of people wearing their shirts. Therefore I have never bothered to check them out. Closed minded? Sure but I'm a busy man.... I don't have enough time in the day to accomplish all I want to do.....

I've heard a good sampling of a lot of their black metal stuff and was never really impressed aside from one or two good tracks. The newer stuff up to the Apostasy was solid but I don't think it holds up too well overtime. As a previous poster said, current material became very formulaic.

The early era of Behemoth was one of the finest moments in BM, anyone claiming something different has either shit in his ears or no clue about the early 90ies.

The band turned slowly into shit, with the first signs of it on Grom. Saw them live in 1999 and it was terrible, forgot about them afterwards.

Zos Kia Cultus is a great album (if not their best) imo..

Behemoth is one of the best examples of a commercial band, and Nergal proved to be one great manager and producer with a excellent sense for what's currently fashionable, and who mastered his opportunistic approach to perfection. It always surprises me how much people praise the band which NEVER recorded anything truly original. The closest to originality was their 'Satanica' album. This, and 'Sventevith' are the only materials I like.
By the way, Nergal said in an interview, given sometime upon 'Evangelion' release that he's often inspired by younger bands, like German Katharsis.

Yeah, I like everything up to and including Zos Kia Cultus, with my favorite probably being Thelema 6. I'm not interested in their music anymore, but it's not like they've pussed out anything, they are more 'extreme' now than they have ever been. Super cool dudes as well.

I like their newer/heavier sound better myself. Although, after a while the albums do start to blend together in my memory. I think there are usually a few standout songs that I really like on each album but I don't think there is one album that I think is all that great as a whole.

well, there have always been 2-3 songs on every album which I enjoyed but I never considered myself a fan.

Saw them live twice and it was ok.

I really like From the Pagan Vastlands, Sventevith and parts of Grom. Not interested in anything from them afterwards. Drop that gimmicky "ov" shit and maybe we'll talk.

I am not a fanboy at a all, but I smell some revisionism in this thread.

Of course, Behemoth have become a huge commercial band since the late 90ies, but no one can deny their influence in the early days. Sure, they were of course heavily influenced by the Norwegians themselves, but still they had their own approach.

Especially Sventevith is a masterpiece of atmospheric melodic Black Metal, with great folkish parts and epic keyboards.

I hear a lot of early Behemoth in some LLN and Wolfnacht, for example.

I completly agree with the first post. The bm stuff is quite boring, the dm records are good. Also, an amazing live band ... and Nergal is great reallity show judge, ja.
