For the eleventh time Belphegor has invoked the forces of magick and death.
For many years now this brutal Teutonic triumvirate has been a consistent staple of solid black death that is not only heavy on the all-out satanic dread but is equally heavy on its capability to write memorable and powerful songs. The artwork is once again handled by Seth whose morbid paintings have become as iconic for the band as their songs. Contrary to Seth’s own band Septic Flesh , Belphegor has a very stripped down sound ,without any orchestral arrangement, and instead relies solely on the strength of their brutal melodies. The small horror film fragments are a nice embellishment on the intros, but generally ‘Totenritual’ gives the stage fully to its mighty riffs as its lift the veil of death itself with a thunderous roar.
