Deathcult are a band from Los Angeles, California that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style on this recording which I would describe a being blackened doom/death/thrash metal and this is a review of their 1991 demo "devoured In Holiness".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs t hat follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine death, thrash, doom and 1st generation black metal to create a sound of their own as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very dark, raw and primitive sounding mid 80's to early 90's underground metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all deep growls that recall the origins of death metal, while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the 90's demo sound.
In my opinion this was a great demo from Deathcult and if you are a fan of early 90's and mid 80's era dark underground metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Path To Darkness" and "The Bride". RECOMMENDED BUY.
