Chthonic Cult - Become Seekers for Death

Now this is a bonafide crusher. Become Seekers For Death is a death metal nerds death metal album. Chock to the brim with devastating grooves, flashy solos and an inexorable sense that the world is coming to an end, Chthonic Cult is a masterful piece of work that is going to continually drive listeners ever deeper into the abyss alongside these modern day masters of the art. This is death metal done right and it will crack your skull. There's not a whole lot more to it than that. It's a delight to get lost in every step of the way. 

Become Seekers For Death thrills because of the breadth of the compositions and the go for the throat tenacity that makes them such a special force. Songs like the title track ooze with blood and hint at dark underworlds that are hitherto unexplored. It's a death metal nerds death metal record that is going to leave you lapping up blood and eager for more depravity from these masters of the underground. It's death metal for a blasphemers generation, and getting lost in it is a rare treat for devout fans of every stripe. What more is there to want from these modern day kings of the dungeon dwelling sound? This fuckin' rips. 

So yeah - Chthonic Cult are certainly not reinventing the steel, but they are crafting a heavy record that leaves listeners begging for more and which continually implodes skulls. It's a death metal record that relishes its place in the underground and invites you to come writhe in the murk. It ties into many modern day HM-2 worshiping tropes, but guess what, those tropes fucking rule, so it's rad that we get to experience them. Join me in listening to this gorgeous sonic torment and prepare for ultimate darkness to come.

Experience the madness for yourself!
