bcb723 If not my favorite, this is probably the best and most classic-sounding Cultes des Ghoules album. Every track is just monstrous and, honestly, pretty fucking scary. After this is the jumping off point for some. I'm a huge fan of the subsequent releases and the challenging aspects that come along with them (especially the insanely batshit "Coven"), but there is no denying the impact "Henbane" makes after listening. Pure black metal evil. Favorite track: Idylls of the Chosen Damned.

rghchallen The first couple of minutes of this album are worth the price alone. Favorite track: Idylls of the Chosen Damned.

about

Arcane rituals, medieval devil worship, black blood spilling forth, screams from the abyss both nameless and numerous...CULTES DES GHOULES unleash their second full-length spell, Henbane. Five years on from their classic debut album, Häxan, the mysterious Polish cult take the sulphurous, swilring gnarliness they've plied on their splits in the interim - and particuarly on the preceding Spectres Over Transylvania MLP - and drag it deeper into the eldritch depths. Both more compositionally advanced and more primitive than all previous, vocals ranging throats both ghoulish and diseased, and still with the most overpowering, bass-driven sound around: CULTES DES GHOULES make their grandest, most garish statement yet with the epic Henbane. Listening to this just once, you'll be damned for all eternity...
