REVIEW/OV/B.BAPHOMET/ALBUM/ON/BRAINWASHED.COM

the fine folks over at http://www.brainwashed.com have these interesting things to say about the B.BAPHOMET album, “Einsplundahgn” on Small Doses:

B.Baphomet, “Einslpundahgn”
Written by Scott Mckeating
Sunday, 27 January 2008
B.Baphomet’s rough hand-cranked dark ambient is nowhere near the detached (I think they call it ‘glacial’) end of that market, its measured input of black/doom influences giving it a living cruder feel. The solid elements like bass notes on Einslpundahgn’s “Dronediscipleā€ and “Rites Ov Catharsis” aid in preventing it from becoming a straight mood exercise or too dredging or sludgy. As enjoyable as this inward disdain is, it is only when B.Baphomet steps away from the darker moods that the music connects for me.

The two darker pieces suffer slightly from odd elements creeping into the blend of sounds. Bleeps and excessive use of oscillated noises means that moods are fractured and left unable to heal in time. When “Our Hearts Would Break,” the final track arrives in a spooked-out rain of rhodes and vibraphone it almost immediately melts into gorgeous. There’s such a great bass line and a huge positivity about the whole piece that it smacks of heavy ocular treats.

The whole thing breathes like some classic Hancock / Ayers track put through drone filters. It sounds like the work of a man who couldn’t even comprehend the concept of misanthropy. Maybe Myk Colby aka B.Baphomet needs a new pseudynoum to explore this territory further.

not bad, eh? to see the review in context, go to this link:
