Ruach Raah - Under the Insignia of Baphomet

Unapologetically raw black metallers Ruach Raah have released their second full length, ‘Under the Insignia of Baphomet’ through War Art Productions, and it is a welcome dose of primal rage in a genre that has tended to spread towards the vast and more introspective of late. Ruach Raah have no such pretensions.

‘Hang Humanity Upside Down’ is probably the quintessential track in an album full of raw as fuck, black metal nastiness. The riffs are poisonous, venom is spat in throat shredding rasps, and the downright filthy production coats each track in a miasmic, toxic embrace. These Portuguese monsters tear your throat out on the savage ‘Funeral Fumes’, and refuse to stop this cacophonic battering until the last, maiming note of the awesome ‘Bodysnatchers’. An album that is really set all at one pace, and that pace is bloodthirsty and manic.

‘Under the Insignia of Baphomet’ is an album of uncompromising, nasty black metal that will appeal to the Darkthrone/Blasphemy fans in all of us. There does not need to be another dimension to it, only more hatred, more bile vomited at the state of the world, and more sickness at humanity’s wretched spirit. Ruach Raah are here to remind you of the blackness running through metal’s veins.
