Guest review by
Beherit is one of the oldest Finnish black metal bands and they have been in a pause for a very long time. After more than ten years of pause, they have created a new album, called Engram. With that, they have proven that they are still capable of creating great black metal.

The songs on the album are very raw and relatively short when compared to the works of many black metal bands (barring Ildjarn, Immortal etc.). There is a long song, "Demon Advance", which is more of a progressive black metal track but it never gets boring. Songs usually consist of a few riffs but what they make with that little amount of riffs is really awesome. The vocals are not very harsh, but the normal ones (in terms of black metal). Another thing worth mentioning is that the sound of the album is very unique and original.

Reviewing music is a tricky past-time; one has to carefully balance a mixture of historical significance both nostalgically and factually along with comparison of a band's existing discography to its contemporaries and also its own work all the while fending off any overt personal feelings toward the subject matter. Beherit's Engram presents itself as a particularly troublesome entity when considering these facts. In the case of the band's history and influence the overriding reference will always be Drawing Down the Moon, which needless to say is held in high regard by most listeners of the genre (no more so than myself) as a landmark album that experimented with distorted, ritualistic ambient and mid-paced blackened metal. In short: it was highly original for its time. Naturally this brings us onto Engram:

Nice to see 2 reviews representing the polar opposite opinions on this album.
Wish every album had that.
