In general, Cult is an album below the average and predictable, but...
is the last album from To/Die
/For until the moment, it was released by Massacre
Records label on the 26th June
2015. The sound product created by: Jape Perätalo ( Voices
and Keys); Juppe Sutela e Esa Virén (Guitars); Samuel Schildt (Bass) and Samuel Schildt (Drums) is a work that demonstrates the emotional and creative tiredness of the band.
Even being an album that shows strong signals of exhaustion, the final result isn’t bad. Eight
tracks of Cult
display the same Gothic Metal
with lectronics effects, melodies and heaviness mixed in a effective way without pretension, a trademark from the finnish in all their discography that began with the album All Eternity
Aforementioned exhaustion appears in the apathy of the tracks, specially in vocal lines and some arrangements that look tired, frustrated and copies from ideas used on the previous albums. Despite
an inferior performance, Cult
offers good moments on the tracks: “In Black”; Unknown III” e “You” that are straight to the point.
In general, Cult
is an album below the average and predictable, but that still shows all the elements that made To/Die
/For an interesting Gothic Metal
band to listen to, when what you look for is a simpler sound made with knowledge of cause.
