Yet again, IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS discovers one of the best, brightest/darkest hopes for underground metal, this time in the form of diabolical black metallers HERETIC CULT REDEEMER and their self-titled debut. From seemingly out of nowhere - or a nameless abyss, at least - arrives Heretic Cult Redeemer, but the band actually comprises veterans from the fertile Greek black/death metal scene which includes such bands as Acrimonious, Necrovorous, and Embrace of Thorns. And that experience shows across the band's debut album, as HERETIC CULT REDEEMER redeem gnarly, orthodox black metal into something epic and daring, each cavernous 'n' careening construct opening up new portals into the beyond whilst keeping the intensity feverish. Hideous and transcendent, herald the arrival of HERETIC CULT REDEEMER.

Prone to staying up late; after purchase, playing this atmospheric wonder deep into the night; this whilst reading Gene Tierney's, Self Portrait; realizing the ephemeral nature of our lives; no escaping the vicissitudes of The Wheel. There would seem to be only one way to freedom; the narrowest of paths. Thoughts. Jeff Richardson
