Cult Of Erinyes are a band from Belgium that plays a very ritualistic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Transcendence" which will be released in February by Caverna Abismal Records.
A very fast and raw black metal sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music starts bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as adding in grim sounding screams and melodies.
Most of the music brings in a more modern style of black metal while also keeping the rawness and grimness that is a very important part of the genre and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length and when spoken word parts are utilized they give the music a very ritualistic feeling while one song does bring in a few seconds of clean playing and they close the ep with a cover of Mayhem's "Pagan Fears".
Cult Of Erinyes plays a style of black metal that can be ritualistic but done with a more raw and guitar driven approach, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover philosophy, history and human nature themes.
In my opinion Cult Of Erinyes are a very great sounding ritualistic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Transcendence". 8 out of 10.
