Black Ceremonial Kult/Genocide Beast - "Demo XXIV/Demo XXV" (Old Temple, 2016)
Title: Demo XXIV/Demo XXV
Genre: Bestial Black/Death Metal
Year: 11th November 2016
Time: 35 min
I remember when, 10 years ago (I was 18 years old!), the bestial black/death metal bands were relatively few and many of them had still do to release their debut album despite a discography yet full of demos and splits (in this sense, I think to Necroholocaust or Goat Semen). Instead, the bestial black/death metal genre is now enough popular in the underground, so new bands see the (black) light almost every day to clone Blasphemy or, maybe, to extremize, if possible, their incorruptible verb. In fact, this day it's the turn of two new bands devoted to Blasphemy since the Polish label Old Temple has wanted to gather the very first demo of Black Ceremonial Kult and Genocide Beast into a sole split CD released the previous year. For the record, it's Marcin of Mythrone Promotion that has sent to me, through that list of promo kits composed also of the yet reviewed "Eight Cardinal Sins" of Hellias, this split titled "Demo XXIV/Demo XXV".
Well, the first band of the split are the Chileans Black Ceremonial Kult, that at time of their first demo "Aberah KeDabar Demo XIV", recorded after their foundation in 2014, were a trio while now a quartet strong of the new addition of the bassplayer Maut. Their discography is comprised only of another split in 2016 and, curiously, the very known German label Iron Bonehead Productions released in 2016 a compilation composed of all their stuff.
Speaking about Genocide Beast, these are a US duo from Arizona born always in 2014 but, initially, they were a one-man band guided by Zyklonik Devastator, then assisted by the drummer Warazathoth while the bassplayer Blood help them for their live rituals since 2016. Their demo with the same name, released in 2016, represent, for the moment, the sole production by Genocide Beast, without counting this split.
In brief, it's a shame for the side of Black Ceremonial Kult (rating: 50) but I remember to you that their songs into this split were taken from their very first demo, so I think that they are improved during these last times. Instead, MEGA-CONGRATULATIONS to Genocide Beast (rating: 70) that, for me, are even a new sensation band, so I hope they are working on new stuff but, meanwhile, they have printed their very first t-shirts. THE FINAL HOLOCAUST HAS BEGUN!!!
