Binah - Hallucinating In Resurrecture

Hallucinating In Resurrecture
by Rebecca Miller at 10 September 2012, 5:02 PM

British Death Metal is possibly not a phrase that makes most people sit up and take notice. But with “Hallucinating In Resurrecture”, the debut album from BINAH, those same people might just be forced to change their minds, for this is a fine album, especially considering it’s their first.

The great thing about BINAH is that they definitely don’t sound like a band just starting out. Maybe it was a risky move not releasing an EP first, but it’s certainly paid off. Their sound is very much traditional Death Metal – back to the roots, if you will – and you can’t help but think of Swedish Death Metal when you’re listening to the album. I think that it can be difficult to get this genre of music right – too many band go overboard with the vocals, or just have absolutely no rhythmic sections – but BINAH have managed to get the balances right and create an awesome album. They create somewhat of an atmosphere with “Hallucinating In Ressurecture” with the intro (“Into The Psychoanteum”) and outro (“Buried Baptistry”) leading in and tying things up well, respectively. They also don’t venture into Thrash, as some Death Metal bands have a tendency to do – they keep it heavy, and slow, sometimes going a little bit quicker, but all the time keeping to the spirit of the genre. But whilst I’ve been saying what BINAH sound like, at the same time they manage to create a sound all their own, with heavy as shit riffs, and haunting melodies.

The vocals are perfect for a Death Metal album. They’re brutal, and growling, but they’re not incomprehensible. The dude’s got a very good voice, and he’s not afraid to show it. It’s amazing that this album was put together by only three men, but when you look at how many instruments Aort and Ilia R.G. contributed with, you begin to understand the amount of talent that went into the making of “Hallucinating In Resurrecture”. I think what stands out for me the most is the guitar work. It’s heavy, and I’ve already mentioned the riffs, but I think that the fretwork really makes the doomy, morbid atmosphere. The drumming helps a lot in this aspect too, it doesn’t take over the songs, but it’s enough that it shows you how talented A. Carrier is, and they fit perfectly with the tone of the album.

So for a debut album, I don’t think you could ask for much more from BINAH. If this is anything to go by, they’ve got an excellent future ahead of them, and I think that they could make quite the impact in the Death Metal world.
