I do think this is as good as any of the other past efforts.
Wayne Young
It definitely has that element of traditional Florida death metal sound to it, which complements the strong blackened elements.
RWM
Same drumming and riffs that you're used to with awesome vocals as usual.

Conjuring the Dead arrived in my mailbox back on July 25. I had pre-ordered it from Nuclear Blast with the t-shirt bundle, which also came with a poster and they threw in some stickers as well. I’ve had about a week to digest Conjuring the Dead. Let’s get right to the main question: would it be as good as Walpurgis Rites: Hexenwahn and Blood Magik Necromance?
I think it’s fair to say Conjuring the Dead is as good as Walpurgis Rites or anything from the Belphegor catalog, but I would be exaggerating to say it is best of their albums. Rather than taking a binary approach of better or worse, it may be better to view Conjuring the Dead as an evolution of the band, one that I’m enjoying as much I did their previous albums.
Conjuring the Dead continues Belphegor’s evolution toward a more straightforward blackened death metal sound. Songs like Gasmask Terror and Pactum in Aeternum solidify Belphegor’s place as masters of the blackened death metal style. That being said, there is still tons of classic Belphegor represented on this album by harkening back to early black metal. Lucifer, Take Her! is squarely in the sound that Belphegor has carved out for itself. The album never becomes monotonous, but rather it moves through different musical motifs seamlessly. We arrive at the track The Eyes, where we encounter a lull in the action represented by a simple acoustic melody overlaying some wickedly mournful shredding. Then like a full body slam Legions of Destruction kicks in with a beat like a curb stomping leading into some technical death metal breakdowns before the outright rhythmic assault begins.
Of course, with Belphegor you get massive guitar shredding and drums that sound like .50 cal machine guns. I love the staccato rhythms Belphegor seems to be able to twist into contorted melodies that underlie their otherwise abrasive songs. The musicianship demonstrated on Conjuring the Dead is prodigious. Definitely my favorite metal album of 2014.

After allowing themselves an uncharacteristically lengthy period of time to lick their wounds (and let frontman Helmuth recover from a typhoid infection that nearly killed him), Belphegor blast back onto the scene with another new full-length in 2014’s “Conjuring The Dead.” This album is the tenth proper record from a band that long ago established themselves as the absolute best musical exports ever to emerge from Austria.

“Conjuring…” finds Helmuth and Company mostly decapitating the listener with their own brand of furious and crushing extremity. But with that said, this record is also arguably Belphegor’s most experimental offering to date. It finds some tempo variation, and even a few heavenly melodic guitar flourishes to enter the picture, thus also helping to produce a definite leap forward in quality of songwriting, and forming a significant amount of texture and increased number of standout tracks.

The title song briefly takes a break from its huge, crunching, doom-soaked riffs and brutal, commanding, bottom-of-the-gut-scraping bellows to incorporate a gorgeous little bit of colorful acoustic guitar nuance, as well some fleeting use of operatic-sounding backing vocals. The end result is a song that establishes a fantastic juxtaposition, and one that brilliantly offsets crushing extreme metal with misleadingly peaceful melodies. And later cuts, including “Rex Tremendae Majestatis” and the closing “Pactum In Aeternum,” work similarly. The former of these two tunes opens with a somber-sounding bit of acoustic guitar melodicism before eventually taking flight with pummeling blasts, steamrolling guitar leads, and roaring vocals.

Well put together album with hard hitting deep death metal riffs, a good bit of melody, and a great amount of variety in structure and sound. It definitely has that element of traditional Florida death metal sound to it, which complements the strong blackened elements. Taken alone, it sounds to me more like a death metal band moving in a blackened direction than the converse which gives it that crushing hard hitting sound although at times their black metal roots come out strongly, especially at the end of the album. Being a punk rock guy who dabbles heavily in grind and metal its great to see these "traditional" bands put out very high quality and well produced albums without loosing the energy and excitement that often gets lost when bands work too hard perfecting sounds. Make no mistake there is no "core" element in this album whatsoever, but its energy level is on par with those great hardcore punk and grindcore albums without sacrificing the musicianship and complexity that metal fans expect. I think this album would easily appeal to anyone into extreme music and the overt satanism should not put you off as this is in no way a crap two riff black metal album for kids to scare their parents with, but a complex, dare I say, masterpiece.

I look forward to Belphegor coming out with new albums. I can never get enough. I do think this is as good as any of the other past efforts. If you like Belphegor you will definitely not be disappointed. I do wish it came with a DVD like so many of their other stuff. Anyway i love it.
