We’re delighted to unveil details about “Accursed Possession“, the second album from unholy duo CULTUS PROFANO. Pure cold and evil old-school Black Metal.
Simultaneously starker and more atmospheric than 2018 debut “Sacramentum Obscurus“, the band achieve malefic transcendence without the need for superficial adornments, through a stripped-back, pitch-black palette of elemental guitars, mesmeric percussion and vocal invocations of burning venom. The opening track is streaming on Bandcamp and Youtube.
With the band now a live entity, “Accursed Possession” possesses a tour-honed alchemy of purpose, vision and execution. The arcane vibes of those Italian, Greek and other obscure occultists of the second wave are channelled in a unison of magick and mysticism, invocation and ritual, sulphur and mercury, throughout the 7 hymns :
01. Cursed in Sin, Op. 25
02. Devoted to the Black Horns, Op. 16
03. Upon a Tomb of Sacrilege, Op. 24
04. Towards the Temple of Darkened Fates, Op. 19
05. Within a Coven of Shadows, Op. 21
06. Tenebris Venit, Op. 23
07. Crown of Hellfire, Op. 11
“Accursed Possession” will be released on CD, 12″ LP, exclusive DMP edition 12″ LP, audio cassette and digital on August 28th. Pre-orders are possible now via the label’s EU shop, Bandcamp and US shop.
CULTUS PROFANO is a Black Metal duo founded by Advorsus and Strzyga in 2016 in Los Angeles, USA. Together they conjure a pure form of blasphemy that evokes hatred and darkness. The impious vision of CULTUS PROFANO is to fulfill a sacrilegious oath in the form of unholy compositions.
