Belphegor is the best blackened death metal that ever was, is and will be but in the beginning of their career, they were not that good but they never sounded bad. They’ve evolved with time and grown with their every new album.

I’ll describe you the music on this demo. Helmuth at that time wasn’t the vocalist, he was on guitars while Maxx was doing the vocals, his vocals are great for death metal standards, and the growls are very powerful. There’re relatively less black metal elements in these songs because the songs are mostly death metal songs. The drumming is fast, very supportive to the fierce and distorted riffs, most of the songs are mid-tempo songs but the essential speed is there. The production is fairly clear and everything can be heard easily. This isn’t like some early cheaply produced effort like most of the cases. I am a black metal fan, I do not hate death metal but I don’t like it as much as I like black metal but even then I enjoy these songs to the full extent, maybe because I am a Belphegor fan but the songs are very good and each song has it moments especially there’s a guitar solo in “Graves of Sorrow” and also look out for keyboards + guitar work on “Mutilated Corpses”

This is very good death metal with very good guitar work by Helmuth and brilliant vocals by Maxx. The songs have every thing that a fan of bands like Morbid Angel looks for. Listening to this demo will be a pleasure for any extreme metal fan. --- tallhagillani,

Long-running Austrian death/black metal band Belphegor are masters of track and album titles. Previous discs have sported names like Bondage Goat Zombie, Pestapokalypse VI, and Lucifer Incestus, with songs like "Belphegor -- Hell's Ambassador," "Sexdictator Lucifer," and "Demonic Staccato Erection." This new disc includes such life-affirming anthems as "Hail the New Flesh," "Veneratio Diaboli -- I Am Sin," and "Enthralled Toxic Sabbath." Which makes the prospect of a Belphegor album exciting on its surface. The trouble is the actual music. It's pretty much rote black metal with some death metal flourishes, like tweedly guitar solos and gut-shaking double-bass drumming. There are a few stand-out moments, like a slow, grinding passage in "Hail the New Flesh," but Belphegor really aren't doing anything on Walpurgis Rites: Hexenwahn that they haven't done on earlier albums. This album represents a holding pattern, not progress, which some might take to mean it's aimed solely at existing fans -- but, ironically, the band's very artistic stasis, and black and death metal's utter resistance to hooks and melody, mean that this album is also as good an introduction to Belphegor as any of their earlier releases. --- Phil Freeman,



To be sincere, I'm not that familiar with Belphegor and this is the first album I listen to for this band, all I know is that this is a new line-up for the band and they're worthy of a shot to see what these guys have got.

For years I used to think that true Black Metal is limited to Norway, Sweden and Finland, but while listening to the first few tracks of this album I knew that there's something wrong in the Natural Balance, I mean I was totally shocked when listening to the first 5 tracks, but when I reached the sixth one I knew that everything is just alright and the Natural Balance is not disturbed, why? Well they screwed here, but recovered well throughout the rest of the album.

The album starter is a typical Black Metal opening, a firm song, lyrically, musically, and the performance is good, and the delightful thing is that the song won't let you down with a bad solo or change in the attitude but will continue with the same rage till the end. As a whole the album is a true Black Metal album, the fast riffs and the outstanding drums that create the needed atmosphere for such a genre. Guitar solos in this album are so great too and really remind of some of Norway's best. The good chorus that is used in every song makes you long to hear it again and drive you to replay the song again and again and again.

Lyrics are so unique and serving well in the cause of the album, there's a mix between German and English lyrics which is so unique lyrical technique by itself. The good thing here is that the band has successfully used those simple, yet powerful, lyrics and made good rhymes.

Despite the fact that the music and lyrics are outstanding, the cover art work is good and the titles are good too but, the sixth song is a goddamn giant mid-finger for this album. This song is not Black Metal at all, it reminds a lot of the genre "Neue Deutsche Härte" like Rammstein, Oomph and the like of the German bands, and I really can't believe that a band like Belphegor who made such an album is responsible for this song. It's a real damn shame and that's why the album's got 89 out of 100.

In the end, the new line-up seems to be working it out so well and right, and I think Belphegor is really on the right direction. ---Polonium,
