review by THE SLUDGELORD:
"I’ve been aware of French quartet Cult of Occult for a little while but had not investigated further due to their name. I realised what a terrible mistake I had made within seconds of listening to the filthy doom contained within “Five Degrees of Insanity”, a far cry from the bandwagon jumping retro rock I was expecting.

An ominous amp hum builds before erupting into the gut churning opening riff of “Alcoholic”. What follows is a 15 minute onslaught of bleak sludge, harrowing vocals and an evil guitar tone Bongripper would be proud of. Cult of Occult employ repetition to great effect, playing each riff until breaking point before moving to the next. A slight shift in tempo towards the end of track ushers in a pummelling one chord attack, drums pounding to a frenzied climax until the dust finally settles. The next degree of insanity, “Nihilistic”, begins in similarly-pummelling fashion. The band begins to add in more atmospheric elements with this track, occasional bleary, reverb heavy guitar allows the listener to briefly catch their breath before the next crushing blow. “Misanthropic” kicks off with a buzzing black metal attack which is a slap in the face after the snail-paced crawl of the previous tracks. This is only a brief respite though as before long Cult of Occult are wading through treacle once more whilst maintaining the blackened atmosphere from the intro. Hopefully the band revisit and expand on this black metal side during future releases as elements of this track offer a tantalising glimpse of their wider sonic arsenal.

“Psychotic” emerges from the spaced-out conclusion of “Misanthropic” with a few minutes of glorious droning amplifier worship. The black metal atmosphere continues as a menacing tremolo picked riff emerges from the fog which later returns as an eerie, distant keyboard reprise. “Satanic” brings proceedings to a close, beginning with hysterical declarations of war on Jesus, God and everything before grinding out one last serving of punishment.

Despite being a lengthy record at 65 minutes, “Five Degrees of Insanity” is engaging throughout and strangely addictive, particularly given its relentless nature and glacial pace. This is a thoroughly unpleasant listen in the best possible way."

Track Name: alcoholic
I SOLD MY SOUL TO THE DEVIL FOR ETERNAL BOOZE. I WANT TO DRINK FOREVER. DRUNK TO DEATH. COME BACK TO LIFE, AND DO IT AGAIN. ALCOHOLIC FOR ETERNITY, I WILL DROWN IN AN OCEAN OF LIQUOR. TRUDGING IN MY OWN RE-PUKED VOMIT. SWALLOWING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. LONELY, FILTHY, DISGUSTING, THAT’S HOW I WANT TO LIVE. CONSUME YOUR LIFE WITH BOOZE. KILL IT WITH MORE AND MORE. DIE IN ALCOHOLIC ASPHYXIA. I DRINK TO FORGET ALL OF YOU. I DROWN MYSELF IN ALCOHOL. I KILL MYSELF AND FUCK YOU ALL. FUCK YOU ALL.
Track Name: nihilistic
I AM EMPTY. WE ALL ARE. WORTHLESS PATHETIC EXISTENCES. YOU SAY YOUR LIFE HAS VALUE, YOU SAY YOU DESERVE THE AIR YOU BREATHE. I KNOW YOU ARE USELESS AND AFRAID BY THE TRUTH, YOU ARE INSIGNIFICANT AND IRRELEVANT. THE WHOLE HUMANITY IS FAKE. YOU SHOULD REALIZE NOTHING WILL HAPPEN IF WE DIE. THERE'S NO HOPE. I DESPISE YOUR BEING, I DESPISE YOUR KIND, I DESPISE YOU ALL, YOU KNOW YOU MAKE ME SICK. SICK. I BELIEVE IN NOTHING, I CARE FOR NOTHING, I FEEL NOTHING, I AM NOTHING. YOU LIVE FOR THIS. YOU LIVE FOR THIS. YOU CAN SEE NOTHING, YOU PRAY FOR NOTHING, YOU ARE NOTHING AND YOU LIVE FOR THIS. YOU LIVE FOR THIS. OPEN YOUR EYES YOUR LIFE IS SHIT. YOU LIVE FOR THIS. OPEN YOUR MIND IT IS EMPTY. EMPTY. WE'RE NOTHING. IS IT POSSIBLE TO IMAGINE ANYTHING SO RIDICULOUS AS THAT THIS MISERABLE AND PUNY CREATURE, WHO IS NOT EVEN MASTER OF HIMSELF, EXPOSED TO THE ATTACKS OF ALL THINGS, SHOULD CALL HIMSELF MASTER AND EMPEROR OF THE UNIVERSE, THE LEAST PART OF WHICH IT IS NOT IN HIS POWER TO KNOW, MUCH LESS TO COMMAND?
Track Name: misanthropic
I DON'T LIKE YOU. I DON’T WANNA HEAR FROM YOU. I IGNORE YOU BUT I CAN’T HELP HATING YOU. A STORM OF LOATHE RAGING INSIDE OF ME. EVERY DAY, AT ANY TIME, HATRED BLOWING WHEN I HAVE YOU IN MY SIGHT. DEEPER. DARKER. DISMAL. WEAKER. FROZEN FEELINGS. DREADFUL MOANING. I WANT TO LIVE ALONE AND WATCH YOU ALL DIE. SATAN, COME QUICK; SHOW YOUR BRUTALITY. PLEASE LET ME SEE HOW YOU’LL MAKE THEM BLEED. I FUCKING HATE YOU, LIAR, BITCH ASS, INNOCENT OR FULL OF GUILT, UGLY PRECIOUS LITTLE KID, YOU STINK, YOU SUCK, FUCK OFF, I DON’T WANNA LIVE WITH YOU, YOU ALL HAVE SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME SICK AND VIOLENT, THAT MAKES ME WANT TO BEAT THE FUCK OUT OF YOU; YOUNGER, OLDER, EVERYONE PISSES ME OFF, I DON’T CARE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS, I DON’T WANNA TALK TO YOU, JUST GO DIE. CUNT. BITCH. JERK. SCUM. FAG. WHORE. DOUCHE. PRICK.
Track Name: psychotic
I’M GOING CRAZY, I’M TURNING MAD. ALWAYS IN A MOOD FOR HURTING. WORDS SHARPENED AS BLADES. ALWAYS IN A LUST FOR KILLING. I’D STAB EVERYONE. I WANT YOU DEAD, I WANT YOU DEAD AND GONE. I STAB YOU IN THE HEAD. I SEE YOU DEAD, I SEE YOU DEAD AND GONE. THERE’S THIS RED FILTER. IT COLORS THE WORLD WITH MURDER. IMAGES OF YOU ARE FLASHING. EVERYTHING IS SWIRLING, NAUSEOUS FEELING. YOU KNEEL, YOU BLEED, YOU BEG. I’M SMILING. WHEN I REALIZE THIS IS JUST A DREAM, I WANNA MAKE IT FOR REAL, FOR REAL. FUCKING SHIT, I’M SO ANGRY. I CAN’T CONTAIN THIS RAGE. SATAN WANTS ME TO KILL YOU ALL. HE WHISPERED, IN MY EAR, I SHOULD DO IT. HE CALLED ME “SON”, HE SAID HE NEEDS ME. I HAVE TO MAKE EVERYTHING FOR HIM. YOU’RE GONNA DIE NOW. YOU’RE THE FIRST, NOT THE LAST. WATCH THE CHAOS THROUGH MY EYES. AS I’LL PLAY WITH YOU ‘TILL YOU DIE. IT IS SO GOOD. I CAN’T DENY I ENJOYED THAT. HATE AND MURDER ARE SO TRIPPY. I’VE FOUND MY WAY IN THIS POOR WORLD. I CAN’T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN.
Track Name: satanic
I DECLARE WAR TO JESUS CHRIST. I DECLARE WAR TO GOD. I DECLARE WAR TO EVERY CHRISTIAN AND THEIR DREADFUL BELIEFS. I, IN THE NAME OF MY FATHER SATAN, ORDER YOU TO FORM THE STRONGEST ARMY AND GIVE BATTLE TO OUR ENEMIES. THERE’S NO TIME FOR PURGATORY. WE WILL BURN THEIR CHURCHES DOWN. WE WILL BEHEAD MEN AND IMPALE WOMEN. AND SLIT THEIR CHILDREN’S THROATS. WE WILL FEAST IN THEIR IMPURE BLOOD. DESTROY THE EARTH AND ITS HUMAN WORMS WHILE SCREAMING THE NAME OF THE MASTER. WE CAN’T TAKE NO PRISONERS. WE HAVE TO KILL THEM ALL. TROOPS OF DOOM, MARCH. ERASE THEM ALL. MAKE THEM SUFFER. FIGHT. FIGHT. RISE INVERTED CROSSES OVER FUCKING CHURCHES. I SUMMON YOU FATHER. SHOW YOURSELF. LEAD US TO VICTORY. SHOW US THE WAY. SON. I HEAR YOU. VICTORY. YES FATHER. WE WILL WIN. WE WILL WIN. I WON'T TOLERATE ANY LOSS OR DEFEAT. I PROMISE. I PROMISE. WE'RE FROM HELL, WE'RE THE BEASTS. WIN THE BATTLE. YES FATHER, YES MASTER, PUNISHER. YES FATHER, YES MASTER, PUNISHER. YES. YES FATHER, MY MASTER, PUNISHER. FATHER. YES FATHER, YES MASTER, PUNISHER. I'M YOUR SLAVE. YES FATHER, MY MASTER, PUNISHER. I WILL SERVE YOU. YES FATHER, YES MASTER, PUNISHER. THEY WILL DIE BY YOUR HAND. YES FATHER, MY MASTER, PUNISHER. THEY WILL PAY FOR THEIR SINS. YES FATHER, YES MASTER, PUNISHER. YOU WILL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER. YES FATHER, MY MASTER, PUNISHER, PUNISHER. THEY HAVE TO BLEED, THEY HAVE TO CRY AND IMPLORE. YES FATHER. YES MASTER, PUNISHER.
