Kaoskult are a band from Poland that plays a very fast and aggressive form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Secret Serpent" which was released by Odium Records.
The album starts out with a mid paced and raw black metal sound along with grim vocals and screams that also use some deeper parts before going into a more fast and melodic direction as well as bringing in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
After the first song the music starts going for a more fast old school black metal direction along with blast beats while still heavy its slow moments along with some ritualistic spoken word parts and a dark atmosphere and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and every song sounds different from each other while you can still tell that it is the same band as well as always sticking to a black metal direction and on a couple of the songs you can hear a small amount of psychedelic sounds in the background.
When the album moves on you can hear some clean vocals in certain sections of the recording and the band start getting more dark and evil sounding as time goes on by and brings out some of the best occult black metal sounds since the early 90's and on the last song you can also hear a small amount of synths being added into the recording.
With this album Kaoskult take an old school form of occult black metal and add in some newer elements to create an album that is very, dark, heavy and raw as well as proving you can also experiment with the music and still have a true black metal sound from beginning to end.
Song lyrics cover Chaos Magick and Occultism, while the production has a very, dark, raw and heavy sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Kaoskult are a very great sounding heavy and aggressive occult black metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invocation-Manifest" "The Virus Of Discord" and "Words of Power". 8/5 out of 10.
