4 stars Could you let me say the latest album of BEHOLD The ARCTOPUS "Hapeleptic Overtrove" is flooded with smart senses of humour? We could mention that 2020 is another cornerstone for themselves and their creation. "Hapeleptic Overtrove", drenched with excessive complicated melodic lines and crazy dissected rhythmic vibes as well, actually sounds crispier and more delightful. One reason would be that fantastic percussion has been introduced dramatically, and another would be they have launched colourful and diverse sound appearances in this opus intensively and intentionally. In this sense more eclectic development and improvement can be heard all over.

The first shot "Quithtion" is kinda killer, massively with lyrical percussion bullets and technically exaggerated instrumental puzzles. Jason's percussion is amazing and tempting. His play gives flowery seasoning to their impressive extreme metallic sound basis, and simultaneously leads and agitates themselves completely, oh great. The following "Adult Contemporary" features sensitive, repetitive speed guitar phrases and magnificent percussion explosion that cannot be beaten by twin big guitars. Cannot hear any adult contemporary via this track (of course lol) but can get relaxed and stabilized mysteriously and mystically regardless of its complex movements. "Telepathy Apathy" is not apathetic at all but definitely congested with distorted guitar sound material, that amazes us. Could only the fans feel sound through such an eccentric stuff? And in "Blessing In Disgust" we can touch their 'disgusting' heavy play in a metallic manner. "Forgotten Explanations" is another unique one reminding us of the similarity to Le Silo or so. Slightly monotonous and inorganic but the toughness is not bad really. In "Other Realms" we can enjoy a strongbox full of their technical treasures and melodic malformations. Wondering if they could reproduce such a musical complication, but in fact it should be easy for them even on stage. The former part of "Perverse. Esoteric. Different" is pretty surprising, due to steady ambience and chamber approaches. And to go forward, to get heavier and more straightforward as usual. This development of musical theatre is awesome. A six-minute track might have almost all of their current situation I guess? "Hapeleptic Perspective Respect" can show some upsurges of emotion in a flat sound ground. Hapeleptic ... I'm not familiar with this word but suggest it would mean that they could grasp lots of musical items? The last "Quithtion Overtrove" is kinda decent reminder of the first attack, and we can be overdriven and immersed in this deep testament of theirs.

One of giants is their fascinating shout in 2020. "Hapeleptic Overtrove" is their cornerstone and Tech / Extreme's cornerstone. The cornerstone should be shining brilliantly.
