For 20 years now, UNAUSSPRECHLEN KULTEN have built a commanding canon of eldritch death metal DARKNESS. From their early demos to later splits and especially their preceding four full-lengths this Chilean cult have explored the furthest reaches of primordial dread and ancient mysticism, all through pure 'n' authentic Metal of Death. And now, a whole two decades after their formation, UNAUSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN continue to push themselves toward the beyond with the mesmerizing Teufelsbücher. UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN proceed to plow through 42 minutes of exceptionally epic and challenging territory. Totaling six stout labyrinths of song, Teufelsbücher twists and turns in diabolically obscene / obscenely diabolical ways, retaining immediacy and urgency despite those daunting song lengths. No less feral and frightening than before, UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN bend the listener's mind (and body) to their unholy will, slipstreaming with a devilishly nuanced grace paradoxically at odds with their blunt-force trauma. Of course, hallucinogenic tension reaches a fever pitch here on Teufelsbücher, as the powerless listener pleads for sweet release...only to find ever-more-treacherous territory, each barb more gnarled than the last.
UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN have built a nigh-unchallenged canon that takes all the urgency 'n' ugliness of classic death metal and upends it into the realm of high art. When, this late into their career, they could easily coast into crowd-pleasing catchiness, these revered Chileans take the path less travelled and speak ever stranger tongues: verily, Teufelsbücher.
