Behexen are a band from Finland that plays a very raw and primitive form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their 2008 album "My Soul For His Glory" which was released as a joint effort between Moribund Records and Hammer Of Hate Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the synths which are only utilized on the intro bring a very dark and ritualistic sound to the music, as for the bass playing it 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 melody and thrash influences being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very dark and melodic sounding guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from high pitched and grim sounding black metal screams along with some deep demonic growls being utilized at times as well as some Gregorian chants, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Rituals, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Behexen are a very great sounding raw and primitive satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Born In The Serpent Of The Abyss" "Cathedral Of The Ultimate Void" and "And All Believers Shall Be Damned". RECOMMENDED BUY.
