KULT OF TAURUS
Divination Labyrinths
(Forever Plagued Records)
31:47min

Any time a new record is released by the Forever Plagued label, I am immediately interested. Tomas, label capo, has a real knack for finding the most gnarly and twisted Black Metal bands on Earth. After all, the guy released stuff from INCURSUS and DEMONCY. While KULT OF TAURUS are a Greek band, don’t expect your regular ROTTING CHRIST or NECROMANTIA stylings. These guys are heavily into the lesser-traveled Black Metal path of Les Légions Noires, the leprous French Black Metal legion that had bands like MUTIILATION, VLAD TEPES, and BELKETRE among their number. KULT OF TAURUS is unlike most of those bands, however, in that they have an actual ‘studio’ sound quality on "Divination Labyrinths". Well played, writhing and nauseous music is what you can expect here. I might add that, personally, Black Metal of this variety is refreshing, in the face of all the bands ‘kicking the dead horse’ of BURZUM / DARKTHRONE worship. A definite gem in the rough for Black Metal fans. Find more here: www.facebook.com/pages/kult-of-taurus-official/231330920222703, www.foreverplaguedrecords.com
