Infernal Cult are a solo project from the Czech Republic that plays a very raw, melodic and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2018 album "All The Lights Faded'.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw and old school feeling along with the tracks also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and at times the vocals also add in some high pitched depressive screams and as the album progresses a touch of the modern atmospheric style and clean playing can also be heard briefly on the closing songs.
Infernal Cult plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melodic and depressive sounding, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover misery, depression, hate, anger, s elf-destruction and suicide attempts.
In my opinion Infernal Cult are a very great sounding raw, melodic and depressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Embrace Of Shadows" "Self Destructive Life Resistance" and "All The Lights Faded". 8 out of 10.
