2 stars What a strange album. Was the cover for this album drawn by a satanic kindergartener? Delicior Ribbon Pink Beel (Music Of Death) doesn't sound much like death to me, but maybe purgatory. Satan Alfa Beel Atem is an obscure Japanese electronic musician who, judging by this album, apparently lost his mind at some point in his life.

The first nine and a half minutes of this album are deranged, disembodies, electronically manipulated voices of madness. It's not much of a positive or necessary listening experience, but it's there anyway. "Atem E" and "Inferno Final" are noisy, droney, and buzzy soundscapes that basically sound like diet Merzbow. I'm a fan of that kind of experimental weirdness, so I liked these two tracks, but most people might night find them as attractive. "Clear Scale" is actually quite beautiful; organic acoustic string instruments played in pizzicato, accompanied by some warm synthesizer - unexpected, but pleasant. "Topping Voice" is more disembodied vocal confusion, so you can pass this track. "Clock A Dark Blue" is electronically manipulated field recording of some area (not sure where) coated in a thick layer of tv/radio-static and random electronic avant-gardist effects. Basically, more diet Merzbow. "Satan Nolist Package" is disembodied half-singing accompanied by game-show type music in the background and a simple beat moving it along, and is purely annoying. "Cantea" and "Voice Training" are authentic Japanese gagaku instruments and more disembodied vocal bizarreness, respectively, both adding up to little over a minute collectively. "Delicior Ribbon Pink Beel" is a track made of lightly electronically manipulated acoustic instruments with short pops and drones thrown in the mix.

Really, if you haven't heard this album, you aren't missing much. I'd feel safe saying that this was just a one-off experiment that was recorded just for the sake of Satan Alfa Beem Atem's own enjoyment. If you're looking for a worse version of Merzbow with strange vocals scattered within, check this out.
