'Unholy cult' is truly a masterpiece. Once again immolation has reinvented itself to create a darker, heavier and even more menacing atmosphere, with intensity and feeling like no other! Once again immolation have set the standard, constantly progressing their unique style and toppling all boundaries in the process. Immolation are re releasing this classic gem in a special limited edition double digipack of 1000 copies with a dvd bonus 'bringing down the world' filmed during their tour with cradle of filth in 2003. A must have for any death metal fan!

The members of Immolation are true masters and geniuses in the realm of dark art. Their lyrics are very sophisticated; way better than Deicide's. As a Christian, I can relate to the hypocrisy in Christianity. We have Evangelists preaching about what it is to be a good Christian, while they are stealing the congregation's money, priests molestating poor little children and killing too many people in the name of God. These people are not Christian and they give Christians a bad name!
For those who have not listened to Death Metal, please give this album a try. The music is dirty and brutal. I wouldn't have it any other way. The lyrics really got to me. We all from time to time have wondered about God and what the hell is going on in this world. Immolation speaks for those who have thought about this hypocrisy, but have been afraid to talk about it!
Who cares if you are Wiccan, Jew, Christian, Hindu, Buddist, Muslim or Satanist. Just be good to each other.
Thanks Immolation for a heart-felt album!! This album will be or already is, a classic.
P.S. Who the hell is this "Fred Dursts numba one fan!!"
Regards,
Westsoul

I've really been obsessed with Immolation for the last three years now especially after seeing them live with Cannibal Corpse and Napalm Death last year in Minnesota at the 2013 Decibel Magazine Tour. They are certainly one of the best death metal bands that I have had the pleasure of listening to as well as being one of my favorite death metal bands as well too because of their great consistency to put out one amazing death metal release after another ever since emerging onto the scene with their 1991 debut "Dawn of Possession".

Now as for the quartet's 2002 release "Unholy Cult" goes, it simply rules. This album is definitely one of the best albums in Immolation's discography, I mean it just crushes and destroys everything in it's path like an unstoppable tank with eight tracks of pure unabashed brutality and mayhem. Each song here is just perfectly structured throughout, heavy as hell and flat out amazing. The lyrics are also well written and very well thought out and sophisticated rather than just full out blasphemy. In fact, Immolation's lyrics can actually help paint a grim picture of humanity as a whole and also deliver a message that definitely has a lot of truth to it as well. And also let's not forget about the production on here, and believe me it is absolutely flawless. You can hear every instrument in the way that they're supposed to be heard as they're all captured perfectly throughout in the mix. Ross Dolan is in top form as always with his brutal and sinister growls that burn down everything like a wildfire and his bass on here is phenomenally heavy yet not crunchy or fuzzy, it's just perfect and it really compliments the guitars on here so well.

With the release of "Unholy Cult", Immolation have once again put their undeniable stamp on the contemporary death metal scene. This album is a truly unique testament to both the talent and style that Immolation puts into their genre. Whereas "Close To A World Below" was a more straightforward, brutal album, "Unholy Cult" has a bigger emphasis on technicality and polyrhythmic capability by the band, vaguely reminiscent of the technical juggernaut known as Meshuggah.
Immolation provides more than just great guitarwork, terrifying vocals and thunderous blasts on this album. They work to further solidify their own niche in the death metal scene, and do so with great vigor. Also notable on this album is that the lyrics this time around aren't quite so much directly blasphemous as much as they really attempt to inspire a sense a self-righteousness, authority, and self-reliance in the individual. I cannot quite say that this album entirely beats out Immolation's previous effort, but they certainly created a more than worthy addition to their catalogue with "Unholy Cult".
Stand out tracks are the title track and "Rival The Eminant". If you're an Immolation fan or just a fan of death metal in general, it would be worth your while to at least check out some samples of this newly released masterpiece.

I bought this cd recently after reading some reviews. Blasphemously Immolation have been hiding from my collection to this day. First I thought this is your ordinary post-Morbid Angelous prog-deathmetal, with nothing new to offer. But after couple of listenings this unholy thing surprised me. It is very good. Like today's MA with memorable songs. Record is extremely heavy when they slow down and repeat same killer riffs for minutes. I can compare this equally to Nile or mid-period Morbid Angel. Production isn't excellent, nor growling or musicians best in the sta(g)ke, but package as whole is killer. Excellent indeed. Lyrics of this band take one star away, Christianity can be criticized in more intelligent way than this Venom like spit from early eighties.

Ever wonder why most death metal albums on Amazon have 4 or 5 star ratings? It's because you have a certain group of people who like to "support the scene" by giving out 5-star "props" to mediocre albums. Just to let you know, I'm not one of those reviewers.
I've been into Immolation for a long time, and admire all of their albums. However, this is the first one that I think falls into the "could hardly be better" category. Brutal, coherent riffs and vocals, masterful songwriting, distilled into eight songs which are all distinct and uniquely unforgettable.
When was the last time you could say that about a DM album? As many of you on the "scene" can attest, the best bands usually break up, become stagnant, or trail off into mediocrity after a few albums. Immolation, on the other hand, is smashing the envelope, stretching the tired carcass of death metal into daring new directions to the extent not seen since the early Morbid Angel era.
This was the best heavy metal album of 2002, bar none. Enslaved "Below the Lights" was the best of 2003. The 2004 spot is still open, and rumor has it that Immolation has a new one on the way.
It's a good time to be a metalhead again.
