Year: 2017
Style: Depressive Post Black Metal

Well ... Depressive post-black metal (or as it was called there, as it was called) in the performance of the ceasing existence (state at the turn of 2017/2018) Fäulnis is the quintessence of the secondaryity of excessive dosage of sadness. Paranoid vocals, a lot of hopelessness accumulated in groaning guitars, quite a lot of musical space but in the long run tedious… Schizoid sound images in a sick brain intensify with each subsequent piece, while becoming more and more secondary and boring making noise. It's such a style (although sometimes I would like to tell the creators of such playing, to take this string, hang themselves and stop tormenting myself and me - but I will not say, then it would not be on me how to actually hang, he, he …).  Sadness must be able to play well and interestingly but there in „Anticult”, despite the undoubted ability to pull the strings by musicians Fäulnis, blows boredom, oh blows … By the way, the German language in the shouted vocal would paradoxically suit rather in EBM genre than metal. A certain revival takes place between the 5th and the 6th piece (the passage from the mournful black post to the scattering series from the Schmeisser family) but that's just, let's call it, swan song... But in order not to do so completely and so depressing material, I must admit that a good EP could be done. But full length album this is for me "too long and too boring".
