When Poland's metal masters BEHEMOTH unleashed their livestream upon the world in 2020, they raised the bar to a new level and went down in history as the band with one of the most ambitious, incendious and blasphemic broadcasted shows throughout the pandemic. Never before had anyone tried to bring such a cinematic happening into one massive show that took place in an abandoned church in rural Poland, right during the darkest times of the pandemic lockdown. After over a year since the show’s premiere, 'In Absentia Dei’ is still as legendary as in September 2020 and returns on a range of deluxe formats for fans to relive the heretic chef d'oeuvre that took place on that fateful night.

"In Absentia Dei" is now available as digital album, digibook and 3LP Vinyl in various colours and all Nuclear Blast triple LPs come with a premium 20-page booklet as well as a cut-out, build-at-home model of the church that BEHEMOTH performed in.

"In Absentia Dei - one of two pandemic endeavours that we managed to accomplish", mastermind Nergal states. "We set the bar so high and you were right there with us, legions. You can now recreate the magic of that night whilst we wait to reunite in person! Get your copy and join us, the lord shall not be present…"

The event was said to set a new standard for streaming events in the future and this was something BEHEMOTH set out to achieve from the start. Produced by Grupa 13, "In Absentia Dei" was presented as a show of four parts, woven with high-production theatrics and even a hellish flames emanating from all parts of the sacred building.

BEHEMOTH released their latest full-length, https://www.nuclearblast.de/behemoth-i-loved-you-at-your-darkest-tour-edition-cd-digi-blu-ray-291670, in 2018 to vast critical acclaim. "I Loved You At Your Darkest" marked a milestone in the history of the band, being not only their most successful album, but also an audiovisual masterpiece: from its detailed, blasphemous artwork, to the highly vicious, yet deeply emotional tracks, BEHEMOTH once again played with fire - and ignited a wildfire burning the narrow minded bigotry of Christianity down to the ground.
