Cult Of Occult are a four piece Sludge Metal band from Lyon, France. Cult Of Occult play sublime bleak down-tempo Sludge Metal to a devastating effect, they leave you broken down... Their first Self Titled album is a 5 song 40 minutes beast of an album. Full of bleak down-tempo Sludge Metal riffs to pound you with over and over again.
The great music(k) is spiced up by brilliant and impressive hardcore based sludgy Metal vocals. And after listening you will agree that this band have released a truly superb debut album with a dirty, yet great hardcore edge to it.
This album will hopefully be picked up by media as this album is just a superb master class in Sludge Metal that deserves to be heard by a bigger audience. If your into EyeHateGod or Corrosion of Conformity then your going to love this band like we did. This is not for the faint hearted, but for the genuine committed down-tempo Sludge Metal fans.
It has been a while since we have heard a band this superb in this genre. These guys really do know how to play a top-notch Sludge Metal riff to impress the listener with. But it’s not all bleakness and no-light. The guys throw in great riff after great riff to show they can truly play with the best of them.
The five tracks are all brilliant individual tracks but if we have to pick the best tracks to check out then we would recommend the title track and “Blurry and Muzzy”. Both superb songs that show what this hugely talented band does brilliantly well, playing heavy-pounding riffs from start to finish.
