bcb723 Similar to @Alice M, I was always kind of ambivalent towards Cult of Fire until recently when I decided to give मृत्यु का तापसी अनुध्यान another listen & it melted my soul. Because of that experience, I then played Moksha/Nirvana in full & am completely impressed with the level of songcraft here coupled with a sense of spiritual longing. In short, I need to make up for lost time on missing CoF. Vladimír Pavelka is just a black metal machine, with "Buddha 3" being the unreal towering highlight. Favorite track: Buddha 3.

H.L. After realizing that I missed several releases of CULT OF FIRE, I closed these gaps. Such well performed melodic black metal with atmosphere, soul and a unique lyrical approach is a fine addition to each black metal collection. It is difficult to name favourites here as the 5 Buddha songs together appear as one monumental masterpiece. Maybe you try #4! Favorite track: Buddha 4.

Mostly Metal I like this one better than Moksha but they both work well together. This one is more straight forward black metal! Get into it! Favorite track: Buddha 2.

Alice M. I confess: until recently, I thought Cult of Fire was just “a good bm band among others”. The Nirvana / Moksha combo floored me, though. Especially that half. Diverse and consistently good.

oliviervp This is a fantastic work of mystic, non stereotypical spiritual black metal. I can't compare it with any other BM record that I've listened to before. Listen to the "Moksha" counterpart album first before listening to this one. It gives you a perfect flow and just over one hour of demanding but extremely rewarding black metal. A work of true genius that's going to be very hard to top this year. Favorite track: Buddha 3.

The Mad Professor God fukking damn! This is going to be so good judging from this Favorite track: Buddha 5.

about

"According to the profound Tantric Buddhist path, we do not seek to abandon the five afflicted emotions (desire, anger, delusion or ignorance, pride and jealousy), but to train our minds under the guidance of a qualified guru to look directly at their essence or reality, upon which they are automatically transformed right then and there into the five wisdoms and we generate spontaneously the enlightened minds of the five Buddhas. If we do manage to look directly at the reality of each of the five poisons as they appear, we recognize them to be none other than the five wisdoms."

about

Cult of Fire Prague, Czechia

Cult Of Fire was set ablaze in the year 2010, but Infernal Vlad's and Coroner's common idea to create the band was of a much older date. Later also Devilish was invited to join the band for the invocations of death and fire. Thus the cult of fire could rise… ... more
