Bahimiron - Rebel Hymns Of Left Handed Terror
Review: After exploring an aesthetic of disorder, Bahimiron return to the approach that worked well on their first demo but instead of using melody, use the structures of death metal in simplified songs. The songwriting sounds hasty but as if a very deliberate focus were placed behind each piece, so that the band knew what they needed and fought until they found it, even if it went rather quickly.
Combining the Demoncy Joined in Darkness cum Profanatica Profanatitas de Domonatia sound of fuzzy, foreboding, inverse-march riffs with the remnants of the original Gorgoroth-inspired sound that propelled this band into focus, albeit with bits of the Southern style (Down, Eyehategod) and classic death metal mixed in, the new Bahimiron makes fast songs in the style of hardcore punk but gives them a uniquely metal vibe. They aim at being incomplete; the songs themselves are complete, but the emotional concept they express is one of partial completion.
Abundant speed and power emanates from these riffs; no particularly groundbreaking variations occur, and the noisy lead guitar (Watain Rabid Death's Curse style) creates no enduring atmosphere. Even the EP itself tapers off, bringing in a few speed metal riffs and even modern metal influences toward the end (blame Krieg's latest) but the riffs wrap up in hard-hitting songs that are not scattered random thoughts and as a result, create a memorable listen.
