Behemoth have announced In Absentia Dei, a groundbreaking immersive livestream spectacular which will broadcast on 5th September 2020 from a secret church location in Poland. The event will be streamed in high definition 4K, with an immersive experience option, allowing viewers to choose from 8 different camera angles in the multi-camera shoot or watch the ‘Director’s Cut’.
Tickets for this theatrical extravaganza are available now. Parts of the performance may offend, so the footage is only recommended for fans 18+. Watch a trailer below.
Special guests at the event will be mysterious black metal avant garde-ists, Imperial Triumphant, whose set will come from The Slipper Room in New York City.
Behemoth frontman and visionary, Nergal informs us:
We bring a new offering for our faithful Legions! You’ve seen Behemoth in many places across the globe, but never before in the Holy Church. This is a truly innovative event of which the likes have not been seen before. There will be ritual, there will be sacrilege and all from the comfort of your home.
