Deathcult Announces “Beasts Of Faith” Album Release

On September 26th, Invictus Productions (in conspiracy with Iron Bonehead Productions) is proud to present the debut album of Switzerland’s Deathcult, “Beasts of Faith.”

On the heels of Invictus’ reissue of the band’s ’12 demo, Deathcult strikes with an iron-fisted statement with this full-length release. Early on, the quartet’s sound betrayed a wealth of classic influences – namely early Morbid Angel, Death, Possessed, Sepultura, and Necrovore – but the filth ‘n’ fury was certainly in place, and the band has now maximized that malevolent spirit with hook-laden songwriting and gut-churning crunch.

1. Barren Land
2. Beasts of Faith
3. Hammer of Golgotha
4. Death in July
5. A Foul Glint
6. Discreate Homunkulus
7. The Sick Within
8. Evil Dead
9. An Accurst Procession
