Winds Of War
(Debemur Morti Productions)

When you come across a band called KULT, with a debut album entitled “Winds Of War” calling their music “harsh” Black Metal then you expect nothing less than a BLASPHEMY / BESTIAL WARLUST / DEMONCY wannabe, right? Well, that’s not the case with Italian Black Metallers KULT. Contrary to my initial expectation, these guys deliver a decent piece of northern Black Metal era 1995. I suppose that this is even more apparent due to Aphazel’s (of the ANCIENT fame) involvement in the band (he recorded the guitars of the album according to the band). You won’t find any keyboards or female vocals here since KULT follow a more “traditional” approach to their music. On some songs you will recognize an epic, northern feel on guitars and atmosphere that reminded me on the good, old Black Metal sound of ’95 but there are also parts that failed to gain my attention. Hopefully they have a good production and that is a good choice since I am fed up with all those bands trying to reinvent Fenriz’s Necrohell 4-track. I have listened to the album a couple of times and I admit that overall this is not a bad album, still it does not have something that would distinguish it from the tons of similar Black Metal albums out there. I suppose that this is the case with most stuff out there nowadays, right? www.kult-band.com, www.debemur-morti.com
