Behemoth Release New Video Featuring Thoth Deck and Lyrics Quoting From Liber Samekh

Last week, the Polish Black Metal outfit Behemoth released a music video for “O Father, O Satan, O Sun” written by lead singer Nergal and poet Krzysztof Azarewicz.  You might be familiar with Krzysztof from his work with Lashtal Press among, uh, other activities. A close viewing reveals an curious figure wielding a Thoth deck from which he draws and flings out cards. The song’s lyrics quote from Liber Samekh.

and here’s the lyrics:

Shine through me
Come forth in war
Come forth in peace
Bring down the sun
Extinguish all the stars
Let me remain
In splendor ov thy light

Bornless one
As darkness bright
Found not in tongues
Found not in light
Bring down the rain
Drain waters ov Styx
Faustian luminary

Like a day without the dawn
Like a ray void ov the sun
Like a storm that brings no calm
I’m most complete yet so undone

Agathos Daimon
Ov plague and fever
Thy name is nowhere
Thy name is never
Liberate me
Ignite the seeds
Bind not to guilt
Ignis Gehennalis

Frater Lux Ad Mundi
