Review: BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS-”Horrorscension”

By Lane Oliver

Listening to Behold the Arctopus is a one of a kind experience in my opinion. Behold’s music is like having one of those necromorphs from Dead Space burrow into your skull and rattle your brain to mush while simultaneously being sucked into a high speed tornado of broken glass.

It almost sounds like what one would assume the mind of a paranoid schizoid would hear inside their mind on a regular basis.
