Fustilarian - All This Promiscuous Decadence

Fustilarian is a triumphant black metal band who lean heavily into the late 90s and early 2000's black metal tropes. Their adherence to second wave conventions with spiritual leanings and transcendent poetry illustrating the larger whole points to a dark and potent future for a band who seem to truly get the magic of the underground on a fundamental and frankly very exciting level. No - there are no surprises here, but that's not really why you get a black metal record with this sort of art - you get it for the black metal witchery within. 

All This Promiscuous Decadence speaks to a project that really grasps the twisted nature of the underground. The blazing fury of these offerings is exciting, and sinking your teeth into the mind bending magic of this record seems to continually give back and point to bold new futures for what's going on here. Fustilarian continually show on this offering that they are the sort of band who can build on old tropes to create music that is bombastic and powerful. All This Promiscuous Decadence is a thriller any way you slice it, diving into some of the fan favorite tropes of the genre with aplomb and encouraging listeners to really come to terms with dark mental spaces within. 

If you're as obsessed with second wave black metal as I am then this is the sort of record that is going to keep on giving and bring you deeper into the dark magic of this band and where this sound can go. It's a record that really lets listeners come to terms with the ravaging bitterness of the soul and gets them to unpack some of the bleakest moments in the genre. All This Promiscuous Decadence is a monster of a record and one that will keep you coming back in awe of the fire that burns within this band. The deeper you delve, the more you love it, guaranteed.
