Guest review by

Following up on their 1994 release, the embarrassingly novice album H418ov21.C, Beherit returned once more with sinister ambiance; Electric Doom Synthesis. However, don't expect any amateurish synth work this time around as Beherit has pulled out all of the stops to create a dark, gritty atmospheric album.

The music on Electric Doom Synthesis is, in all honesty, nothing too exceptional. While fairly original, each song is nothing more than a few droning synth lines, hi hat abuse, bass, and the occasional sharp metal riff. But, combined, each song, and the album as a whole, can entrance the listener to a despair filled, crime ridden state of mind. If Ulver's Perdition City brings to mind the jazz fueled gangster ridden cities of the 20's and 30's, then Beherit's Electric Doom Synthesis is the musical form of Paul Verhoeven's Robocop. Rather than an intelligent, hip underworld, Electric Doom Synthesis is a bleak, PCP fueled schizophrenia. There is no modern cityscape to be found here, only the criminal-inhabited ruined infrastructure of what could perhaps once be called civilization.

Rating: 8 This album actually rules if you ignore the possibility of any bm on it.

  Yeah this is an underregarded gem. Hugely atmospheric and ritualistic, and still has a little bit of metal here and there.

  I was checking for ambient stuff made by metal bands, and remembered beherit had two of them. This one is impressive, very minimal but mesmerizing atmosphere... "Dead Inside" is overwhelming... definitely gonna buy this ! On the other hand, I'm not really convinced by H418ov21.C

Rating: 8 I actually really like this, it's what Beherit should sound like. I'd give it around an 8 if I decided to keep ratings
