I was waiting for a while since Behexen last’s release. And let me tell you my wait was in vain. While My Soul For His Glory is a pretty solid release for a band of the caliber of Behexen, it’s still missing one very important feature: the shiver inducing vocals of the previous 2 releases.
The music sounds more mature than their previous 2 releases, marking a clear progression of the quality of musicianship that the members of Behexen have. After 13 years since the band’s conception, you can hear that each instrument complements each other in a perfect diabolical ‘harmony’.
While musically this album is far superior than Rituale Satanum and By the Blessing of Satan, like I previously mentioned, the vocals are pretty … lame for a lack of a better word. While they are still black metal like, they are missing all the elements that made this band stand out in the past. It sounds like Torog lost his voice before recording the album or something.
Other than the problem with the vocals, the release is very solid. From beginning to the end, the album engages the listener into Behexen’s music and doesn’t let go. I have to note that the last song “My Stigmas Bleeding Black” is the best one of this album, probably because of the light use of keyboards.
