The ritualistic side of the Cult is the very essence of the band. From the very beginning, the way CULT OF ERINYES writes music enhances the ritual in seek of the trinity, the purest form of the universe. Caverna Abismal Records was the first force to believe in the potential of this band, back in 2010, materializing their first demo “Golgotha” for eternity. Corvus, the main composer and brain of these creations once said “Perfectionism and simultaneous simplicity are exactly what we want to create!” But he also add that “Every song is based on some patterns. The more you listen to the song, the more those patterns will appear and consume you”. Maybe because of this particular atmosphere of their sonority, the band is often called Ritualistic Black Metal. With time their art evolved to more intense and aggressive hymns, melting black energy with maturity that called the attention of Les Acteurs de L’ombre Productions to release their debut full-length in 2011. A very well received album preceded the contract with Code666 Records to unleash what was their second full-length. “Blessed Extinction” was the definite affirmation that CULT OF ERINYES is one of the most interesting active black metal bands in Europe.
This time, Caverna Abismal Records, brings to light some obscure songs written by the time of “Blessed Extinction” that were hidden in shades of introspective negativity. Two new compositions and a Mayhem cover (“Pagan Fears”) mixed and mastered at the Blackout Studio (Enthroned, Lucyfire, Emptiness) set an EP to enjoy in lonely meditation.

Excellent, original black metal. Shares a lot of features with blackgaze with its bright, dreamy riffs, but just bleak and brutal enough so that, for the "purist", the stigma of blackgaze dissolves. caspergers
