For those not yet initiated, Cult of Occult is a four piece hailing from France. The band released its first album Cult of Occult in 2012 followed by Hic Est Domus Diaboli a year later. A band of few words, little is known other than that it is influenced only by Satan, fueled by “HATE BOOZE HELL SATAN” and that it wishes to be hated. Continuing on from its 2012 debut which was a rawer and more primitive, booze fueled sludge attack, Cult of Occult’s second offering, Hic Est Domus Diaboli meaning “Here is the House of Satan,” is the result of honing its craft for a further year. Now, there is a deadly sense of focus, majesty, atmosphere and a hellish purpose which flows from beginning to end.
