Belphegor’s “Baphomet” has it all. A blackened death metal assault with enough gory visuals to churn your stomach! Check out this deliciously disgusting release!
Belphegor from Austria has been one of the sickest bands around since 1992. If you like boobs, blood and the Devil this is the band for you!
In my humble opinion, their back catalogue of sleaze is more prolific than any of their villainous predecessors but I’ll admit the demon has waned these past few years. Conjuring the Dead (2014) just didn’t get my goat. There’s only so much you can do with the name Beelzebub and twenty-five years in the business is a long time even for hardcore Satanists. It’s difficult to keep coming up with fresh devilish material. Luckily, Belphegor isn’t one of those bands, Totenritual, available this month via Nuclear Blast Records is fucking nasty!
The video for “Baphomet” is Satanism at its finest, dark forest backdrops, midnight rituals of blood, nudity and fire. These visuals have the feel of a ‘70s horror show come to life! Some criticism has been made over the choice to release a censored version of this effort. For the life of me I cannot understand why? This is the year 2017, videos are released universally and not every market adheres to the same restrictions regarding nudity. Besides, there’s enough blood and gore to satisfy any appetite. These naked beauties rip out and eat a human heart!
There’s a lot of replay ability in a release that has so many messages. I noticed the word COAGULA written on one of the girls arms. Could this be in reference to The Order of The Coagula, the vicious cult from the horror movie Get Out?
