Blasphemous, venom-spewing black metal here that just pummels your eardrums into the ground with their barrage of blast beats and structural changes. From the onset it is obvious that Throcult are highly capable musicians but I was lost at times with the majority of the album cruising at light speed. Slowing it down was definitely not in their battle plans as this wall of sonic brutality levelled me. Like a student of the secret sciences, more and more was revealed to me with repeated listens. These tunes were not penned with your run of the mill, two-chord template and with lyric sheet in hand you will be sucked into the realm of the Nighthorde!!!
Bottom Line: Extreme metal fans should gobble this up!!!
