(N.E.) Imperial Cult-Spasm Of Light LP (2019)

Country: Netherlands
Genre: Black Metal, Doom, Noise
Label: Sentient Ruin Laboratories/Amor Fati Productions
Tracks: 1
Length: 34.0'

A thirty four-minute spectral avalanche of largely improvised raw black metal fury, Imperial Cult's debut LP Spasm of Light was recorded live in 2017 as a single, half hour long trance-inducing movement of embodied chaos designed to dismantle the psyche. The phantasmal vocals, combined with the repetitive intensity of the music, create an impenetrable fortress casting its spectral shadow unto a scorched and barren wasteland. As previously seen in bands like Fell Voices, on this mesmerizing inaugural work the Dutch band have erected an unyielding wall of black metal drone trance whose framework is rooted on repetitive, cyclical, and vorticose cyclones of furious raw black immersed in a storming haze of decaying ambient-noise that defies logic and sanity.

The three members involved in the project are key figures in the Dutch extreme/experimental underground, and are active in bands like Turia, Nusquama, Cryptae, Lubbert Das, Horrid Apparition, Dead Neanderthals, Solar Temple, Heavy Natural, Iskandr, Celestial Bodies, and DungeönHammer as well as tied in with the label Haeresis Noviomagi. Thematically, Imperial Cult is a reconnaissance of an inherited culture of physical violence and material exploitation. Marching towards self destruction, we must understand the inevitability of violence and quenchless nature of bloodshed. Imperial Cult refers to ancient forms of divine worship of emperors as deities, and the cognate contemporary worship of those who will ultimately destroy us. It is a call to power, to reclaim the sacrificial logic which enables our ruination.  

(Press Note)

*Damn, Imperial Cult have unleashed a beast of an album with their debut LP Spasm Of Light.  Spasm Of Light features one 34 minute track of raw, ugly, and brutal as fuck sounding black metal, doom, and noise.  Spasm Of Light was released via Sentient Ruin Laboratories and Amor Fati Productions on August 23rd, 2019.  Overall, Spasm Of Light makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!

Genre: Post Metal, Sludge
Label: Holy Roar
Tracks: 4
Length: 30.0'

CURSE THESE METAL HANDS formed in early 2018 as part of a specially commissioned collaborative performance for ARCTANGENT FESTIVAL.

Made up of members from CONJURER and PIJN (HOLY ROAR RECORDS) the group were tasked with creating a suite of original live compositions for the event. The collaborative experiment was so kindly received by the audience that CURSE THESE METAL HANDS would go on to continue working together in the studio, reworking their performance into their debut self-titled studio LP, released Autumn 2019.

Geographically far flung and musically disparate, the members of PIJN and CONJURER sought to combine elements of each band’s music, while taking inspiration from classic British rock such as THIN LIZZY, modern American metal in the vein of BARONESS and TORCHE, and even legendary singer songwriters like ELTON JOHN.

Following the release of CURSE THESE METAL HANDS, the group will also return for a second commissioned performance, playing the record in full at ARCTANGENT 2019, along with rare, exclusive dates to follow.

(Press Note)
