I have known the existence of this horde for quite a while but never got around
to give them a proper spin but after i saw this third full album "Baphomet Pan Shub-Niggurath"
with the artwork of Daniel Corcuera i was spellbound!
As i started to listen the key-shaped pieces started to fall into place as i realized that
this "kult" is devotees to the deeper layers of Lovecraftian worship and as well as some kneeling for the great Ea...obvious.
It is surly a dripping and grueling slab of songs thats infesting on this "gift", it runs mostly in evil mid tempo
but more them often it speeds up like an octopus on fire and as well it slows down to a doom filled cavity.
...Death fills the room as well as other unimaginable dimensional beings...
The compositions is filled with neat stuff that will keep your ears on its toes, they are good at building
tension which is a must for this kind of horrorish rituals.
Vocals is pretty deep slimy growlings which again is very fitting the purpose here.
And as i mentioned the lyrics is much based on H.P. Lovecraft so if one like to dissect them there is
much to find here.
My song picks would be track 4,5 & 8 but this album feels more like one big work (or maybe two) so it
feels a little wrong to pick some out.
Great album that also grows better by time, and i am extra happy that i finally listen to them because
now i have like four demos, one Ep, two splits and two albums more to look forward to!!
