Hells Headbangers announced the release of the third album of Polish Black Metallers CULTES DES GHOULES. The album is entitled “Coven, or Evil Ways Instead of Love” and the release date is set for February 17h, 2017.
Here is an interesting excerpt from the official press info regarding the essence of "Coven": "Essentially, Coven sonically and (especially) lyrically illustrates a spiritual quest and the wish of death - death to a mundane world of moral laws and social conventions and shallow existences. It comprises a whole cast of characters - an actual dramatis personae, in the manner of a traditional play - whose innermost thoughts and outermost deeds are given life by the devilish throat of Cultes Des Ghoules. Each of the five songs is a whole "act" in itself, travelling across tension and cresting to high drama. Suitably, the music follows in kind, encompassing the band's trademark teeth-gnashing gnarliness to more dynamic - and, yes, dramatic - iterations of what were mere sonic suggestions in past, particularly in swaggering Sabbathian groove.”
The band presented a special sample track at Hells Headbangers' Bandcamp, (where the album can also be preordered), the first track "The Prophecy (Prologue) / Devell, the Devell he is, I swer God… (Scene I)" and the second track of the album "Mischief, mischief, the devilry is at toil… (Scene II)".
