Staff review by
This must be the most blasphemous band in Death Metal scene, (followed by Incantation of course) Indeed is difficult to beat a masterpiece like "Close To A World Below" but Unholy Cult, believe me, it's also a great masterpiece.

I was at the record shop when I caught a glimpse of an album with an incredible cover artwork; it was a solitary ground with a gothic church that produced a satanic shadow, the cover is quite direct to what the album refers to in the lyrics and music, I didn't catch the band's name until I saw a tag that said "Immolation Latest Work", suddenly I was so excited, my blood rushed, my heart started beating fast, and I knew I had to buy that album in that precise moment; this happened more than a year ago, and when I see this cover in my record pile I still feel that incredible dash in my head.

I had this album years and years ago. It was undoubtedly one of the best death metal albums to date.

'Rival the Eminent' - very addicting.

Just as good as Close to a World Below, despite being somewhat overshadowed because of the majority of Immolation's fanbase hailing that album as the band's most iconic release. Everything on Unholy Cult is done with conviction and gusto, enough so to make every riff and twisted transition stick out like a sore thumb. Plus, I don't know about anyone else, but parts of this album reminded me of mid-era (I guess around Obscura/From Wisdom...era) Gorguts. In a good way, naturally.
