Consequence of Sound

I Loved You At Your Darkest is another strong addition to Behemoth’s remarkable run, which has now lasted more than a quarter century. It reveals some welcome growth within a subgenre of heavy music that has often been resistant to evolution.

If anything, Behemoth should be commended for their ability make the stereotypical metal themes of Satan and Jesus-bashing sound so fresh and exhilarating.
The Guardian
Even if it’s hard not to titter at titles such as If Crucifixion Was Not Enough, the album is an entertaining romp that could appeal more widely than to just the band’s regular extreme metal hardcore audience.
The Line of Best Fit

I Loved You At Your Darkest is a stark reminder that Behemoth are capable for battle, fit for any sort of obstruction, or any hindrance; they’re a band ready to lay waste in the blink of an eye.

Metal Injection

Aside from a few hiccups in the overall flow of the songs and record, I Loved You At Your Darkest is good.


It's not The Satanist, but I Loved You At Your Darkest has just enough black sunshine to take Behemoth to the next level. Whether or not their fans follow them there is a different story.

The Needle Drop

I Loved You at Your Darkest is a solid blackened death metal album that's occasionally marred by Behemoth overextending itself, or treading the water it waded with The Satanist.

The Satanist is so much better
You're going have two sides of the coin with this band and this album in particular. One would be their whole corny obsession with the religious propaganda for example the children choir from the start of the album or the other side of people who enjoys the aesthetics and song/writing on here. For me personally, with this band I fall in the latter. With their newest album, ''I Loved You at Your Darkest' is one hell of a great comeback from their last critically acclaimed album The Satanist. The ... read more
I Loved You At Your Darkest is a record that adds to the Behemoth discography rather than progressing their sound that much. This record certainly hits hard and brings some charm to the aggressiveness with likeable lyrics and instrumentation. What keeps this from being great is partially impacted by the band's discography itself. After 10 studio albums, we expect a lot more from artists and want more progression and creativity. This explains why I tend to lose interest with this in the latter ... read more
Behemoth release a solid and complete, but far from groundbreaking album.

Polish black metal outfit Behemoth return to add an 11th addition to their studio album discography with a pleasant take on dark and accessible, hard hitting metal. The overall sound of this release is decent, with some weird, out of character songwriting decisions, but also with some gnarly, face-melting fire classic decisions.

Elitist black metal fans might have some issues with some of the songwriting here, such as ... read more
Now whilst i find The Satanist and Evanelion to he miles better. This album still holds it ground. An absolutely brutal album with some great drumming.

Best Songs: God = Dog, Solve, If Crucifixion was Not Enough
