DARKENED NOCTURN SLAUGHTERCULT (Germany, Black Metal)


Still witnessing the impact of the Cults latest spell a new chapter was augured. As the predecessor merely opened the archaic portal it was upon time to demystify the blackness awaiting beyond the threshold. As more and more time trickled away - like primordial sapphirine driplets bedewing desiccated tongues - a more sinister aura radiated from the unkown onto the palace empty of God. The portal couldn't be kept open for much longer, thus with keen bedevilment nine necrocosmic visions were manifested. 

Whilst an era comes to an end another era dawns. May these visions be perceived for what they truely are - for upon their arrival night eternally reigns.
