Illum Adora – Ophidian Kult

illum adora – ophidian kult

Info

Black Metal from Germany and the brainchild of Hurricane Hellfukker, who is best known for his vocal work with Zarathustra as well as his label Kneel Before the Master’s Throne Records.

Along with Mortüüm on drums, as well as several guest musicians from Countess, Black Command and In Corpore Mortis, the second full-length turned into a blend of Old School Teutonic thrashy Black Metal and the majestic occult-ish approach of both the Dutch (especially the vocals) as well as the Scandinavian scene of the early 90s. But don’t be surprised if you hear some Black ‘n Roll as well. Within the songs you will hear a tad of Desaster, some old-fashioned Ancient (couldn’t use Ancient twice in a row), a Mithotyn-like chorus on “Winds of War at Holocaust Sky”…as you can read, there is happening a lot on “Ophidian Kult”.

Some will embrace the differences and familiar parts throughout the album, others will ask for more consistency. “Ophidian Kult” is without doubt a variated Black Metal album, but I have to say I’m leaning more towards the “consistency” part.
