Time to try something different review-wise. Yes, it's time for a double review. And what better way to kick it off with a review of the latest buzz in doom world, namely, "The Cult Of Disease" by Procession.

The following two people are the reviewers:
MH = Marcel Hubregtse
BC = BitterCOld

MH The highly regarded Iron Kodex label from Germany released The Cult Of Disease EP by Chile's Procession in February as a strictly limited to 525 copies vinyl affair. Within no time at all this high quality release managed to sell out and the buzz was born. This buzz was strengthened by Procession themselves in April when they hit Europe for some shows at the highly rated Doom Shall Rise and Keep It True festivals as well as a short tour with Griftegard. At Doom Shall Rise the band managed to sell about 150 copies of the ep on cd within an hour after finishing their mindblowing set. So, is the hype warranted?

Maybe I just haven't heard most of the great doom out there, but I listened to this today, and some of the riffs just blew my mind. It was just (I hate this term) heavy!

How come this is classified as an EP? It's the longest of their releases...

Songs 4, 5 & 6 is the rel-released version of their demo. It is the original recording , hence the difference in sound quality between 1, 2, 3 and 4, 5, 6
