Behemoth Inner Sanctum Music Video

Music video for Inner Sanctum a track from The Apostasy, the eighth full length studio album by Polish black metal masters Behemoth.  Front-man Adam “Nergal” Darski had the following to say about the video at the time of its release – ” I’m still blown away by the effect[of the video] myself. Why? ‘Coz it looks like nothing I’ve ever seen in the metal genre. Lately it felt like we’ve pretty much explored every territory in the world of music videos, especially with our clip for At The Left Hand Ov God. This time we took completely opposite artistic approach, we went black and white, absolutely no effects, analogue film tape, and something we’re doing for the first time ever – acting. I truly believe this bizarre video will show you a little bit different aspect of Behemoth‘s complex nature. Watch and enjoy!”

Inner Sanctum Lyrics

Split my skin, fuck my wounds
Desecrate the Inner Sanctum in which I hide
Drag me through the mud, blind my whitening eyes
That I may see darkness in the tunnels ov light

Pain I cannot deny
As I rot in this empty shell
Swamped in disaffection
Introducing to my newborn hell

Be it not so
Thou shall see me not in agony
Failure was and is no option
‘Tis my undying self
The ever wandering son ov the morn
Abandoned, yet never to be conquered

I never mourn, I never look back as long as Thy phosphoric rays
Grant me more pleasure than pain
I, who is evil can receive no good
Though I still crave, I’m yearning for
Thy healing touch ov grace

Pain is timeless
When I question the laws ov god
Drowned in everlasting confusion
Caress my hate against the mob

Be it not so
Thou shall see me not in agony
Failure was and is no option
‘Tis my undying self
The ever wandering son ov the morn
Abandoned, yet never to be conquered
The opponent
My life’s work is complete
