It’s pretty cool how Behemoth have managed to grow as a band. I’ve seen them in 2001 and I saw them in 2019, and I’m really amazed by how big and epic their show nowadays is: wornout lyrics aside, they’re a true modern headliner. This new record doesn’t feel like one of their best, yet - but it also feels like it could be a grower. It’s less immediate, but layered.

A week earlier than advertised, but it’s up everywhere so let’s dig in! Sonja is Melissa Moore’s new project, after she lost her place in Absu (as Vis Crom) when she came out as transgender. Fuck everything about that. She’s back stronger than ever, with a gem of an album. All power to Sonja.
