Kult Mogil is Polish for ‘Cult of Graves’ and this trio definitely succeeds in delivering some ghoulish hymns from the underground.

I decided to check out Kult Mogił  because the title of their new EP, Portentaque, intrigued me. I’ve always been fascinated by the superstitious beliefs of Ancient Rome. In an age full of unexplained phenomena, fears ran wild. An omen or plural omina, was a sign of the future. Portentaque is a derivative of, portentaque prodigiaque mala, which roughly translated means, bad omens.

Kult Mogił is a death metal act from Tarnów, Poland. The group has been active since 2014. Their debut effort, Anxiety Never Descending was released back in 2015. This new EP is due to be released September 29th via Pagan Records.

This three track EP is actually quite good. Portentaque is plodding atmospheric death metal. Bordering on stifling, this music is claustrophobia unbound. I definitely get the comparisons to Incantation or even Encoffination but as generic as an attack in those styles may be,  Kult Mogił still strives to be unique. There’s a psychedelically progressive quality to their work that mainstream death metal just doesn’t offer.

I call this kind of release, ‘chill death’, at just under twenty minutes, it’s the perfect EP to toss on after work and unwind. Kult Mogił is Polish for ‘Cult of Graves’ and this trio definitely succeeds in delivering some ghoulish hymns from the underground. Check out this captivating release! \m/
