(Cult Of Parthenope)

Battle Helm Rating

I don’t know why I feel that I have heard of this Polish band before. Again here is one of these bands that somehow have gotten into my head and that I cannot sort out if it is a recent memory or an old one. It has been awhile since I last heard a dsbm album. But this one has that aura about it. It feels gray East European, not only by cover but also by music. Urban concrete blocks of faceless housings. No flower or tree to be seen as far as the eye can see. But that is also the charm of it. The bleakness of it all. If you like me have a fondness for melancholia this is an album that you’ll enjoy the way I enjoy it. Dressed in a classic 90s black metal shroud this is the fitting soundtrack to a world of no colour. Anders Ekdahl
