Cult of Daath, "The Grand Torturers of Hell [reissue]"
Unholy death worship, Cult of Daath play blackened ritual hymns to the darkness and the blood. The Grand Torturers of Hell (this being a re-release of the defunct Warhammer Records) finds these Chicago goat herders in fine form, eight tracks of hateful death rattle and razor-wire guitars. “Ritualistic Impurity” brings the first slow slices followed by the demon thrashing of “Summoning the Blood Red Moon,” two fine examples of what true, bullshit-less American black metal is. The funeral procession follows, amongst it’s ranks a cover of Beherit’s “Sadomatic Rites,” and thirty-five minutes of hell and pathetic humanity. This is exactly what black metal should be; grim, dirty and evil. Easily one of the better records America has produced. That’s all, I have my razors ready and I need to get to business.Justin.S
