Accursed Possession, the second album from unholy duo CULTUS PROFANO, is perfectly 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.
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.
With supreme focus – and in presence of the serpent - CULTUS PROFANO have conjured an infernal path to perpetual darkness.
