Being young and still relatively new to Metal I was, understandably, introduced to the scene by some of the "newer" acts and albums of the day, at least to my knowledge. This album, Behemoth's 'Zos Kia Cultus,' was one of the first albums that not only got me into Behemoth the band, but into Metal music as a whole. While I feel that I have progressed in my understanding and acceptance of the genre as a whole, I can't help but fall back to this album and enjoy it, and still profess it to be better than most of the Death Metal scene that's alive today, and even a rival to the glorious albums of the past which most of us still drool over.

This album is so technically precise as far as the drums and guitar work is concerned. Riffs are both beautiful and mindblowingly spot-on, whereas the drums have their own significance within the album-the fact that the drums themselves stand out is an instant plus for me. The two instrumental 'songs' below one minute don't seem to be of any use whatsoever, but it is more than made up for with the ten other blisteringly heavy tracks. One of behemoth's best albums for sure.

Decided to give it a 9 instead of an 8... This is really a monstrous album. Every element was thought and performed almost perfectly. The drumming is jaw-dropping and the riffs actually feel evil as hell, same goes with the vocals (why did they change them afterwards is a mistery to me...). The music evokes some inspiring feelings sometimes... You just can't contain yourself when Nergal orders you to RIIIIIIIIISEEEEE THYYYYYYYY HOOOOOOOOOOORNS!!!

My favorite Behemoth song...

Though i rated this one with a 9 and demigod with a 10 i always believed that this album contains their most amazing songs. it's really a masterpiece. awesome death metal!!! i'd like a bit heavier the guitar sound but still it is magnificent!

btw if i remember well the only reason i gave this one a 9 instead of 10 is the 2 stupid-useless instrumental "songs"... musicaly it get's a strong 10!

The sound of the drums is just great on this album - best production I've heard. Maximum respect for Inferno.
