Infernal Cult are a solo project from the Czech Republic that has been featured before in this zine and plays a suicidal form of black metal and this is a review of his 2019 single "Son Of Babalon" which was released by Ecliptic Promotions.
Distorted yet melodic guitar leads start off the track along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later. The song is also over 8 minutes in length while the riffs also add in a decent amount of depressive melodies as well as all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them.
Clean playing can also be heard briefly while the tremolo picking also gives the song more of a raw feeling. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams along with the song sticking to mostly a slow or mid tempo style as well as the solos and leads also having t heir atmospheric moments, spoken word parts can also be heard briefly.
On this track Infernal Cult remains true to the suicidal black emtal style he has established on previous releases. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover real events, darkness, depression, human evil, negativity and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Infernal Cult and if you are a fan of suicidal black metal, you should check out this single. 8 out of 10.
