Bathym - Woods of Baphomet
This third demo is the release which the project begins to find it's niche - after the first demos were very experimental. Track 3 is the lone experimental song - by far the worst song on the demo - but it shows the warped side of the project is still intact. Tracks 2, 4, 5, 6 are all a concept surrounding the elements according to Bathym. These tracks are long and droning without getting boring - I wish they were all longer. The closest comparision is ambient Burzum - it is not a clone but the atmosphere is very similar - and ambient Ildjarn - especially 'Black Rain' is similar to 'Landscapes' material. I ended up rereleasing this on 12" vinyl it appealed to me so much - the band has not been up to this level since.
Recommended for fans of ambient Burzum, ambient Ildjarn, Coil, early Mortiis, Taog Susej, Valefor, and of course Abruptum.
