4 stars Look at such a meaningful weird sleeve ... a hell crazy pic and crazy nice nasty tracks. Currently (Jan. 2019) this is the newest album by BEHOLD ... The ARCTOPUS, where are four melodic eccentricities based upon complicated rhythmic ground. The content is a bit short but amazingly deep and heavy and especially introspective, let me say. Their creation "Skullgrid" extremely with weird melodic explosion and unpredictable rhythmic development amazed me indeed, and I could not help having massive expectation of "Cognitive Emancipation" naturally. But surprisingly, such a dark matter's notified me of stabler appearance than the previous one. Wondering why.

It's just my speculation but their entire creativity might have got refined and stabilized. Firstly I've felt that not so aggressive atmosphere or non-theoretical manner can be heard as previously. Hell yeah I found out it's wrong. Through this creation they released bombastic sound impression beneath sorta downtone melodic texture. Never monotonous nor inorganic but intriguing and impressive.

Mind you, it's quite fantastic they launch drastically precise musical prescription for the audience, even if more polished. Suppose their hearts into playing music would have been perfectly synchronized and crystallized with each other. On the contrary, their power and energy to discharge such an incredible mass should be limited ... so this creation is slightly short (but smart and energetic) for a full-length album, let me suggest.
