Dense and multi-layered, Aversio Humanitatis’s second album unleashes a roaring cacophony of icy blastbeats, demonic vocals and pounding riffage. Opener The Weaver Of Tendons draws heavily upon traditional BM, although its cosmic interludes hint at something greater within. While the band’s 2011 debut saw them handcuffed by a reverential preoccupation with Satyricon, tracks like The Watcher In The Walls conjure new realms of captivating atmospherics and blackened psychedelia, showcasing just how dramatically they’ve evolved. Sophisticated, transcendental and uncompromising in its brutality, Behold… demands that you get onboard or be crushed in its wake.
