Only two years after their Sacramentum Obscurus debut, Los Angeles-based USBM duo Cultus Profano are set to return with Accursed Possession. Fans of the second wave black metal’s Scandinavian sect will recognize the orthodox reference points that propel frontwoman Strzyga and drummer Advorsus’s (also of L.A. death metal stalwarts Sadistic Intent) sophomore LP. But this pitch-black palette of tremolo picking and blast beats cuts such a sinister atmosphere that Cultus Profano have already carved their own deadly path just two albums into their career.
Accursed Possession is due out August 28 via the always fantastic Debemur Morti Productions, but Decibel is proud to debut the record’s second and final single, “Towards The Temple of Darkened Fates, Op. 19,” below. Embrace the death.
