Baphomet like much early death metal represented the human subconscious, and the riff patterns and rhythms used in its songs reflect the thoughts just below our level of perception, a kind of framework to life discovered underneath the human hubbub, plastic, and chrome.
Sevared Records has just re-issued the first Baphomet album with the alternate mix that was described as crunchier and rougher by those who heard it. The label released the following description:
