But problem with Cultes des Ghoules, also with "Sinister, or Treading the Darker Paths", is that the fragments of pure genius are mixed up with some dull and forgettable parts. So, if we have an album, which is 60 minutes long then I would gladly cut it up to some 40 minutes max and get a spectacular record all the way through. Anyway, a lot of this music is just great black metal. Very obscure and eerie sounding, with some fantastic riffs and bass work - which remind me the old Greek scene a bit, to be honest.
Sinister is still a lengthy album – five tracks in 55 minutes – but it seems more like an after hours set at a jazz club. You can take in part of it and then come back to it later. ADB: I’m exactly the same, spot on about the casual listening thing. I feel Sinister is finally going to be the album that gets me to listen to a CdG album on the reg. I’ve already spun it more times than Cove. nd I’m still getting those skingasms. Cultes des Ghoules is clearly a band at the height of their unholy powers. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if we’re witness to the beginning of a string of albums that will end up being so influential that they’ll help reshape black metal for years to come. ADB: Straight up, an A from me too.

HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present CULTES DES GHOULES' highly anticipated fourth album, Sinister, Or Treading The Darker Paths, on CD and vinyl LP formats. By now, CULTES DES GHOULES should need no introduction. No one could expect CULTES DES GHOULES to create another Coven, which clocked in at nearly 100 minutes across two CDs or three 12" vinyl records; they would never want to do that anyway. Instead, the coven dives headlong into the spacier crevasses of their inscrutable, always idiosyncratic sound. Within, largely tribal/ritualistic drumming guides this Sinister spelunk into supernatural horrors yet witnessed; loose and lawless but always with torch in hand, the collective canvass teeth-gnashing gnarliness and haunting, stripped-back tension alike. It's not "weird" black metal because it tries to be - it just IS, like always.
