Down the river of corpses...

Genre: doom metal

"The Cult of Disease" was originally released as an EP in 2009, but in the light of the success of "Destroyers of the Faith", it is being marketed again.

And I totally understand that, because, like "estroyers of the Faith", this release offers high class old school doom metal with epic tendencies; that the most impressive thing is that Procession manage to generate the epic atmosphere using the traditional rock band instrumentation, only making very limited use of keyboards and other effects.

I think you have to be a fan of doom metal to be able to appreciate the heavy rhythms, the depressive atmosphere and the density of the music in tracks like "Lie a Plague Upon the Earth", "The Funeral of an Age" and "Down the River of Corpses" along with "Incinerate", and fans of modern aggressive metal music may not like - or understand - Procession. Fans of doom metal, however, will immediately hear that we are dealing with a band who are very good at operating withing the genre of doom metal, and who know how to put together epitomic classic doom metal which comes from the same dark place of the heart as the music of Count Raven, Candlemass, St. Vitus and early Cathedral.

Given that the songs were recorded in different studios and with different producers, there is a marked difference in production and performance between tracks 1-3 and tracks 4-6, with the first half being produced and performed much more professionally.

This release deserves to be marketed some more, and it deserves to be brought into the light so doom metal fans from all over the world can experience this shining black doom metal gem.
