A review on Pantheon Of The Nightside Gods,
an album from the uncrowned champions
of melodic black metal: Belzebubs.
Belzebubs established themselves a cult status in the black metal genre with their self-published debut album Quis Novit Daemonis Astus (2006). The band, originally formed in 2002 as a three-piece by Hubbath, Sløth and Izkariot, found a faster and melodic sound with Obesyx joining the crew. Their second self-published album, Moth of Satanas, followed in 2009, leading the group to sign with Døden Records.
However, due to a series of unfortunate events, the band was forced on hiatus for the better half of the decade. After numerous line-up changes and signing to a new label, Belzebubs is finally ready to resurrect from the dead with the aid of their new drummer Samaël, who’s brought a tight, progressive touch to the rhythm section. The first single Blackened Call came out in June 2018 from Century Media. The full-length album Pantheon of the Nightside Gods was released April 26th 2019.
