Beleth - Silent Genesis - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2021/07/12/beleth-silent-genesis/
According to Demonology, Beleth is a demon who oversees several thousand other demons who, I would venture to say, listen to kick-ass music. Turns out Beleth is also a duo from Australia who recently released their debut album ‘Silent Genesis.’ After a few spins, I believe they have more than a cursory understanding of the Beast.
Their sound is dark and dense and filled with otherworldly imagery. With a perfectly dialed-in crunch, their songs shift seamlessly from Melodic Death Metal to old-school Groove. Eerie demonic vocals permeate throughout, sounding like they came straight from…well, you know.
Songs of note: “Silent Genesis” pretty much encompasses the personality of the album. It has tremolo picking, swagger, and outstanding drumming, but the outro ended so abruptly! So much more could have been fleshed out. Did they leave me hanging or just wanting more?
“Cries of the Father” is a good melding of Black Metal and Groove. The drumming, while superb throughout the album, is particularly impressive here. Some air-drumming may have taken place in my car.
“Black Speech,” while an excellent nod to the Old School, bears more than a passing resemblance to “Bury Me In Smoke.” Honestly, there are a fair number of familiar-sounding moments on the album. Not necessarily a bad thing.
Although catchy, the riffs started sounding a bit similar after a while. A bit disappointing because I can tell these gents are capable of far more than echoing their influences. A solid first offering; I look forward to what they bring next. - Metal Digest
BELETH are an extreme metal band hailing from the east coasts of Australia.
FFO: Carcass, Kataklysm, Lamb Of God
Their music delivers a dark, heavy, driving punch, with an element of groove, catchy riffs, and ferocious, guttural vocals.
BELETH are set to release their debut album titled Silent Genesis, on Friday June 25th, through Wormholedeath Records, Narcoleptica Productions and Scorched Earth Records, as both CD and digital download. The album will be distributed across Australia, USA, Europe and Japan through Wormholedeath’s affiliation with Aural Music Group (AMG) and Orchard Music Inc. (Sony Music).
The intro / opening track off the album titled Thirteenth Spirit / Silent Genesis, was pre-released at the end of 2020. Since its release, BELETH have been receiving enormous positive feedback and a continual expanding fanbase. This is reflective in the 1000+ streams from over 30 different countries, on Spotify alone, in just the first month of its release.
