About this album

The Apostasy is the eighth full-length album by Polish band Behemoth. The album was released on July 17, 2007 through Regain Records. It was recorded at the Radio Gdańsk Studios from November 2006 till March 2007. The Apostasy is Behemoth’s first album to chart on the Billboard 200, having debuted at #149. The record was then mixed by Daniel Bergstrand in the Dug Out Studio in Uppsala, Sweden in March 2007. Then it was mastered by Bjorn Engelmann in the Cutting Room Studios in Stockholm, Sweden also in March 2007.

Unlike Behemoth’s previous studio albums, the piano and a horn section (a trio of trumpet, trombone, French horn) were used in several of the album’s songs. During the recording sessions, the band re-recorded a new version of “Chant for Eschaton 2000” – originally released on their album Satanica – which was released on the band’s 2008 EP, Ezkaton. The album was also put out in vinyl format limited to 500 copies.

The album title refers to “apostasy”, the state of having forsaken one’s professed belief set, often in favour of opposing beliefs or causes. The album cover artwork is a depiction of the Hindu goddess Kali.
