Baptism are a band from Finland that plays a very dark, raw and primitive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2002 album "The Beherial Midnight" which was released by Northern Heritage.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some thrash influences being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep demonic growls, while the lyrics cover Darkness, Evil, Luciferian, Satanism and Suicidal themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Baptism are a very great sounding dark, raw and primitive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sons Of Ruin And Terror" "Blasphemic Tyrant" "Forest Of Suicidal Memories" and "The Beherial Midnight". RECOMMENDED BUY.
