Review

Third release from Croation Black Metal group Black Cult, four years after their sophomore effort Cathedrals of the Black Cult. That album title might make you think this band is a bit pompous, and if nothing else, Nekropola appears to prove that suspicion correct with its experimental and avant-garde sound that's not too far removed from what Behemoth have been doing recently. On first spin, I found this too distant and strange to be compelling, but repeated listens revealed a lot of ambitious musicianship and complexity that made for a novel piece of morbid, nihilistic Black Metal. The title track alone makes it clear this isn't your average grim nekro whatever Black Metal act, but rather a band that's really pushing to make something that's different and challenging. From where I stand, they've done just that with this unique and brilliantly executed release, and fans of strange, high-quality Black Metal will want to give this album their attention.
