This is a reminder of what black metal should sound like. It's dark and whispers of evil rituals and the occult. Scary. The bass is really driving this album and sounds amazing.
Favorite track: The Impure Wedding.
Dread and disease wafting up from the abyss like fumes of the most potent sulfur, coiling and releasing in a tense coitus of godless abandon, the unremittingly repulsive sounds of death worship: this is the sound of CULTES DES GHOULES' "Haxan." After releasing a demo and 7" that were equally mega-cult & mega-essential, this mysterious Polish horde released their debut album, "Haxan,"in 2008 to rapturous acclaim in the underground. Now, Hells Headbangers is repressing this sold-out album on an international scale in preparation for CULTES DES GHOULES' next monolith. For the uninitiated, prepare yourself for mesmerizing occult black metal filth far beyond the copious norm - prepare for "Haxan"!
