Polish extreme metal institution Behemoth have shared the latest single from their forthcoming album, Opvs Contra Natvram. Accompanied by a video animated by award-winning VFX artist Ruben Fro, Thy Becoming Eternal is latter-day Behemoth at their best.

There's a sense of macabre theater to a track that sends waves of black metal electric guitar dissonance over capricious and fitful blasts, with frontman/guitarist Adam 'Nergal' Darski holding court in trademark style, and as ever finding the words and the intensity of performance to give the song a similar vibe to the third act of The Exorcist.
