Ippocalyptica Another year older and perhaps slightly wiser, I had to do the wise thing and buy this stunning effort by Beltez. While less avant-garde and more direct than A Grey Chill and a Whisper, this album is a tour de force of melancholic and dark melodies, equally comfortable at breakneck speeds as it is in its more contemplative moments. Atmospheric to the hilt, the robust production value makes this feel far more powerful than most ABM contemporaries. Be wise, do the right thing, and buy this! Favorite track: Adamantinarx.

Do not turn the other cheek. Defy, and act. Creative, passionate, relentless, incredible atmosphere, production. Essential for any metalhead. Truly, high art.

Concise melodies, sinister vocals and harsh tones as usual - these are just three things one has to expect on the new studio album of Beltez. Hailing from Germanys Rhineland area, the Band intensively explored the topic of death four years ago on their previous record "Tod, Part 1". Now they developed this concept further following Wayne Barlowes novel "God's Demon".

With ,,Exiled, Punished...Rejected" they took up Barlowes atmosphere, which death, intrigues and dying akin to classical literature and ancient Greek mythologies and managed to form it into a musical epic. The result is more skillfull and more intense, yet at the same time, faster and darker as their previous album ,,Tod Part I". This is in no small part due to the collaboration in songwriting, as for the first time in the existence of Beltez a fixed line-up was established, with all members contributing to the music and lyrics.

For ,,Exiled, Punishes...Rejected" the band took their time and artistic freedom to grow and turn a deaf ear to all critical voices out of the black metal scene. The result is a mixture between gloomy USBM and 90s Scandinavian Black Metal with a sinister individual touch. This makes the five songs a musical statement in a class of its own.
