BEHEMOTH - Zos Kia Cultus / CD
Dating from 2002, this is the sixth album from Poland's legendary Behemoth. Zos Kia Cultus saw the band ascend ever closer to the top of the Death Metal hierarchy, with highly efficient execution & composition. The brutal and complex riffs & structural twists would stand them alongside bands like Death Metal heroes Morbid Angel - Behemoth's abilities bringing them far from the primitive black metal roots evident when the band formed in 1991. Recorded in 2002 at Hendrix Studios and released later the same year. The album was produced by mainman Nergal & engineered/mixed by Arkadiusz Malczewski. The album themes are firmly rooted in strong occultism, the title referring to 'Zos Kia Cultus' (Here and Beyond), a form of magic developed by Austin Osman Spare. This edition includes the video to the track 'As Above So Below'.
