FeRRiS "The Poisonous Path" distinguishes itself by the fundamental dominance of utter blackness. The atmospheric artwork symbolises the aura of the compositions very well. Aside from the general depth and inscrutability of the songs, some of them score with their individual quality in a breathtaking manner. Behexen are not willing to disappoint their followers. The fast-paced, highly dynamic songs storm through the darkest Finnish woods. Their merciless verses and the relentless lead guitars are connected with a certain number of weird melody lines, and the totally diabolic vocals of Hoath Torog. His voluminous and terrifying voice leaves no doubt that these guys take their musical mission very seriously.

Jason Harper This album is dark and menacing while remaining very tangible. It is ferocious and still remains melodic, seemingly without effort. Solid, solid work. One of my recent favorites. Favorite track: A Sword Of Promethean Fire.

Nomen est omen... the infected new release from Cvlt Finnish horde BEHEXEN delivers nothing but authentically putrid and truly insane Black Metal.

"The Poisonous Path" is a raging beast, a monstrous work straight from the hell-depths which distils a deeply mephitic climate into an addictive poison.
The production is massive, the riffing intense, the atmosphere suffocating and the melodies vicious and bewitching – pure dark sonic alchemy.

Well worth the wait, the fifth album from this superior Satanic horde commands respect: having forged their own amazingly impure path over the years, today they are at the height of their unholy Art and comfortably seated on the throne of Devilish Black Metal!

BEHEXEN, the infernal sovereign, has never been so impressive and “The Poisonous Path” is their preeminent offering to date.
