RITUAL MUSIC

Sometimes a band will shift gears and change direction so drastically that one has to wonder if something utterly tragic or completely magic happened during the interim. Such was the case when Beherit, early and highly influential purveyors of blasphemous black death metal, opted to make "H418ov21.C". This album is deeply satanic, deeply evil, and in no way at all metal. This self-described "Ritual Music" seems to be the outcome of much narcotized contemplation by Beherit main-man Nuclear Holocausto. While I'm sure the hordes of Beherit fans probably hated "H418ov21.C", I found it to be creepier than any previous Beherit offering. This record was made with what sounds like a cheap Casio keyboard and an even cheaper vintage drum machine, one track being just a continuous rapid bass drum. So fucking weird and personal sounding, as if Beherit didn't want to make this so much as they HAD to. Druggy, evil, and just straight-up bizarre. Here:

Can't wait to hear this, can't believe you've posted it. It took me forever to find Electric Doom Synthesis - I ended up saying fuck it & going to some Russian download site to get it (I bleached my hard drive after that) - but it was worth it, for the most part. Maybe not as unique as some had led me to believe, b/c it actually has some industrial and electro elements to it, but yeah, it was worth it. Anyway, I've read this one takes EDS even further in the WTF category, so I'm looking forward to hearing it as soon as it's downloaded.

And btw, your blog is the single coolest blog in the world right now. Thanks for all the treasures.

The darkness is the soul of hate pussy. My blood is like a donkey eating its jesus. I cum but dont. My eyes itch when I look at faces of dogs in pain. I used to live,but now I died and cant go to the grave when it opens its smelly mouth full of death teeth. The altar is like a christmas toy I never liked,but played with only to make joy to the ones who forced it upon me tired nose. Pussys fart in hell like old men in alone bars. I walk on shit and bring it to my home. The girl doesnt want sex but tells me of it. I blood.

It really is creeped out in that same way that Burzum instrumental gives me chills and makes me want to sacrifice my neighbor's dog under the full moon. And that's not a bad thing.

I have EDS, but I hadn't heard this until now. It's way better in a more spontaneous way. EDS is very together and this sounds like NH got high and fucked around on his casio, you know?

This is outstanding! I cannot believe I'd never heard it before today!
