Third release from Croation Black Metal group Black Cult, four years after their sophomore effort Cathedrals of the Black Cult. That album title might make you think this band is a bit pompous, and if nothing else, Nekropola appears to prove that suspicion correct with its experimental and avant-garde sound that's not too far removed from what Behemoth have been doing recently. On first spin, I found this too distant and strange to be compelling, but repeated listens revealed a lot of ambitious musicianship and complexity that made for a novel piece of morbid, nihilistic Black Metal. The title track alone makes it clear this isn't your average grim nekro whatever Black Metal act, but rather a band that's really pushing to make something that's different and challenging. From where I stand, they've done just that with this unique and brilliantly executed release, and fans of strange, high-quality Black Metal will want to give this album their attention.
