  • Album: Deathcult Salvation
  • Year: 2008
  • Artist: 
  • Belgium

I guess I've enjoyed the first two albums more! The new material of the four Belgians is focused solely on aggressive Black Metal, with Northern influences, pretty linear and lacked in originality. I was expecting more, especially as Mortuus (MARDUK/FUNERAL MIST) and Leen De Haes (BINT) participated to the vocal sequences as guests. One track, somehow odd, experimental and atypical to the genre, "Fogbound", reminded me of the musically expressed occultism some years back by the ones from CELTIC FROST, and it is a track you should certainly pay attention to, even if it has nothing to do with Metal. Otherwise, violent tracks, with Evil voices, without any modern influences, the '80's Black Metal oscillating between MARDUK, ANCIENT RITES and DARK THRONE. Nothing new, just another well performed album destined to be soon forgotten.
