This is dark, Lovecraft-inspired death metal from a band we’ve met before with 2014’s wickedly enjoyable Baphomet Pan Shub-Niggurath.
I was wondering how they could top such a monstrosity of an album, but it seems that they have managed to do this with ease.
So, Unaussprechlichen Kulten’s Incantation/Immolation/Morbid Angel-inspired death metal is back, with slightly longer songs and cauldron-loads of occult, nefarious death metal.
This is classic death metal with a timeless feel. The songs are just as much about atmosphere and mood as they are ugly heaviness and dark aggression. The album sees Unaussprechlichen Kulten in a very creative mood, with each of the tracks showing a wide-range of good ideas and interesting moments across the playing time.
With everything from blast beat terror to doom-laden misery being used to create the apocalyptic music on this release, the band have crafted a disturbing nightmare soundscape of twisted, warped death metal. The band have some quite inventive ideas too when it comes to riffs and melodies; this is non-standard death metal that certainly offers a whole load of extra depth and substance compared to your average death metal band.
These tracks are very enjoyable indeed, and Unaussprechlichen Kulten have once again demonstrated why they’re so good at what they do.
