Behemoth have released a video for their new single Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica.

It’s the latest material taken from Nergal and co’s latest album I Loved You At Your Darkest, which launched back in October via Nuclear Blast.

The promo shows the band playing the track in front of a cliff while surrounded by flames, while disturbing images are interspersed throughout.

Bassist Orion says: “Since we began the writing process, Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica was a stand-out contender to be featured as a single and music video. 

“As the song evolved during rehearsal and recording, it gained this lively, furious vibe which you hear now – thus it includes live performance elements which we've not done in quite some time.”

Orion adds: “We are happy to work with Grupa 13 once again, and once again, they showed their super-professional approach at every step of the shooting and video production. 

“Two separate locations, hours of preparation, but it was all worth it. In absentia dei, we evangelise! Enjoy!"

The video has been released to mark the start of Behemoth’s European tour, which will get under way in Frankfurt tomorrow night. After several shows across mainland Europe, the band will return to the UK and Ireland in February for a further six performances.
