Behemoth Ov Fire and the Void Music Video

Music video for Ov Fire And The Void from the album Evangelion, Behemoth‘s ninth studio LP.  The record was recorded in the band’s hometown at Radio Gdansk studio with engineering and production from Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski , Wojciech and Sławomir Wiesławski, Daniel Bergstrand.   Evangelion was mixed in Miloco Studios by Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Carcass, Napalm Death) and was released in August 2009.

The video for Ov Fire And The Void was filmed by acclaimed film-maker Dariusz Szermanowicz  (Grupa 13) in Poland.   The band commented on their choice for video producers – “It was a natural choice for us to work with Grupa 13 again. They did amazing work for us in the past and we knew we could do something even more spectacular this time.  In At The Left Hand Ov God, despite being more modern, the new clip contains biblical references. The final scene showing the band with an angel and what happens to it at the end is about to cause much consternation.”

Ov Fire and the Void Lyrics

“The divine is God’s concern; the human, man’s. My concern is neither the divine nor the human, not the true, good, just, free, etc., but solely what is mine, and it is not a general one, but is — unique, as I am unique. Nothing is more to me than myself!”

I the Sun ov man
The offspring ov the stellar race
My halo fallen and crushed upon the earth
That I may bring balance to this world

I son ov perdition
From sheer nothingness transgressed
Unto the highest self — to utmost freedom
To explore the starry nature ov my rage

I pulse ov existence
The law ov nature undenied
I hold the torch ov Heraclitus
So I can shake the earth and move the suns

I divine Iconoclast
Injecting chaos into my veins
With life accepted
With pain resurrected
Is the embrace ov god in man profound

The joy ov a dawn
The ecstasy ov dusk
Nourished have I this karmic flow
Where great above meets great below
Let it be written!
Let it be done!
Scattered I walk towards the fractured light
