EP Review :~ Cultum Interitum - Temple of Triumphant Death

The obsession with anything outre is not exactly a novelty in the metal scene, but occasionally it will assume a much more complex and nuanced dimension owing to musicians who insist on addressing such topics with utmost maturity and profundity. Numerous bands have created albums based around their own ideas that take insight from creative writing, but few bands will dedicate the entire span of an release to relevant interpretation of the belief With the emergence and escalation of the novel and notorious tendency. While some excellent ,unique band attempting to sell their flavor of the month band to potential listeners, there are some that simply exist outside of pre-existing molds and take a few years to realize their full potential and thusly grasp the imaginations of many who are fortunate enough to witness their evolve talent. Shadowy, death worshipping Polish veterans Cultum Interitum's latest offering is cut above the rest. Spawning from the depths of Occultism, Chaos, Knowledge, Esoteric Literature, anti-religious is the newest record from orthodox black metal Cultum Interitum - Temple of Triumphant Death. Cultum Interitum this Polish group married the ritualistic fury of esoteric,occult black metal with a creeping dose of mystical,ominous,sinister madness. The atmosphere and tightly plotted EPs were based on mystical, occult, incantation while still employing their own take on black metal.

On this year Poland based black metallers Cultum Interitum unveiled their sophomore EP on this year entitled “Temple of Triumphant Death”  with 13:09 min running time along with hellish,skin-ripping artistry. This new EP consist with 3 tracks . Cultum Interitum was formed in 2017. After a few changes in their bnd regarding band members now this black metal duo consist with E. (Vocals since 2017) and another glorious polish black metal band Ars Magna Umbrae member K.M. In before they had started their band in 2016 with different band name. They have developed into an independent mystical, occult and grand entity with their release Sorgspell (2017). Now I am straight going to the point about this new EP . 

When at first checked out their manifestation I was overwhelmed and infused by the track because of authentic sound ,ferocious,mature and from then I was clinched  that I have to check this whole for sure material and this would be savage beast. Cultum Interitum delivers distinctly experimental, atmospherically evil,vivid,horrifying form of black metal. They Playing the type of scathing, otherworldly black metal. This bands each and every musician did fantastic job on this EP in radiant way and It’s really great when your high hopes are not misplaced. Cultum Interitum manage to strike the right balance between raw, atavistic aggression and a more sophisticated, occult approach.This whole EP reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this opus . It is really not easy to describe their musical style . Cultum Interitum create a constantly shapeshifting maelstrom of crushing chaos and disorder. A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity Despite the often crushing,fast ,furious,cacophonous black metal assaults with a lots of segments of slower tempo too where Cultum Interitum combines a atmospheric, mysterious, introspective passages with cavernous drum thrashes, whirlwind guitars and those effective rasps.

well,their latest incantations opening track starts with atmospheric slow build and eerie atmospheric vibe followed by an onslaught of tremulous, massive,fast paced black metal. The layered tapestry of slightly trebly and heavily laden with reverb, duo-tonal whirlwind of guitar noise laced with aggression,deliberate cadence and progression seasonings supporting the likewise crooning, almost moaning deeply in the throat, high-pitched , duo vocals drown a bit in the almost unhuman-like furiously fast though muffled drumming with ripping and snorting bass, although this evolves to a more dynamic sound on the rest of the EP. Their whole composition and musical style is impeccable also borrow great atmosphere with sour ,dissonant riffs work . All instruments are dynamic, clearly discerned, yet none stand out amidst the cacophony and indeed they have far surpassed it. 
This new releases whole compositions are extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister,grim euphoria and unearthly ambiance . “Temple of Triumphant Death”  commences chronologically invigorating and destructive. Their distinct entity infused me by a lot . They produce atmospheric,unique kind of black metal but at the same time the vocals and other parts of the riffing is straight forward brutal,ferocious simultaneously . Honestly, after a multiple listen this EP just blew me away with their ethereal abyss,multi-dimensional,the multi-layered,ominous musical style . Temple of Triumphant Death perversely brims with an illuminating light, devouring the cosmic light of life and scurrying through the sort of black metal whose radiance is so obsidian as to consume energy as austerely as it expends it. Each musicians have exudes tremendous,cohesive effort on this EP with excellent diligence and nailed it . In this moment which is eternal yet transitory, a new and pure energy grows within the womb of chaos, and which ignites the source of a new aeon, a flame needless of air to exist. Cultum Interitum really does the trick for the atmosphere is the overall murky,mysterious, Juxtapositions of darkness and light, misty sound that comes from the music. A new true god that breeds its new self, purified and sanctified in chaos without an end nor a beginning. I highly cite and embrace this release . 

This is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic,pummeling, ominous,hellish, powerful riffs work . As well bass line up is whopping,intense,strong ,rumbling, slithering . Drumming,percussion line up is bleak, frantic,solid,clattering and powerful . The guitars are solely focused on creating a grandiose atmosphere, but predominantly rely on walls of sound and swerving rhythms.In each track morbidly delicious,macabre,soaring,dark eerie,ghastly riffs,bass lineups matched in well manner .This whole EPs sound deliver a dissonant,grim feeling,sinister,melancholic,gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy . “Temple of Triumphant Death” endures beauty of black metal . This EP indulge strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship . This EP have a hypnotic effect on the listener . Vocals decently large voice that does well for Cultum Interitum . Especially his menacing and hoarse voice are excellent . Vocals howling scream,immense,deep rasps voice emerged on this EP in a well manner adds a thick murky sound and intertwined perfectly with their utterly spellbinding,obtuse,bizarrely arrogant, mysterious,fully blistering black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric accompaniment and embedded perfectly . Their sound,musicianship is absolute prime, with every song unleashing a seething torrent of scalding dissonance and insidious melody, scorching distortion, and barbaric, blasphemous invective, all of which combine to produce an overarching atmosphere of creeping, crippling dread. Overall you will get sinister,gloomy,desolate,mysterious ambient from this whole EP .I really worship this band.

Each song have an energy ,fluency and draw a savage landscape .Stand out tracks are all of them .Every song, every hellish, skin-stripping riff and vile vocal incantation, is delivered with the righteous fury and unwavering conviction of the true believer. Vision of the EP cover is Pretty neat,solid,atrocious,grisly, macabre, gorgeously hideous. Overall “Temple of Triumphant Death” whole EP is Spectacular,engrossing ,significant and goes all the way through with a relentless rage from the beginning. Cultum Interitum is surely the apotheosis of everything. The sound has a depth to it, that with brief distortion. Temple of Triumphant Death is a elite black metal sophistication in their music without sacrificing the feral, ugly core of the style. This EP sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end . Temple of Triumphant Death is a deep and winding journey throughout the mysterious and stifling occult. Indeed this EP is such an true gem of this year . The production is absolutely impeccable,capable of handling both the massive atmospheric and gargantuan heft.Outstanding another one release of this year so far .“Temple of Triumphant Death” is shattering culmination in black metal evolution. Cultum Interitum can effectively capture a pristine essence of bloodthirsty transcendent abandon, disenchanted delirium, or perhaps even a very inhuman strain of mystical experience. The Polish bruisers still possess all the necessary skills and hard-won experience to put younger,newcomer challengers in their place With " Temple of Triumphant Death", Cultum Interitum writes another chapter in their book of successive masterpieces. This is astral projection through a viscous dense black cosmic ocean. If you looking for something different, epic this EP will take you on a sophisticated and weighty black metal journey into another universe where music has the power to transcend the spoken word.
