Staff review by
Scarlet Records is really a bag full of tricks, the range of artists they sign goes from Power Metal to Gothic and Death Metal. When I knew that Stormlord played Black Metal I was excited about hearing this one, even though I'm not such a big fan of Black Metal anyway.
Sadly my first impression wasn't the right one, because even if the cover art of the record was done by artist extraordinaire Jean-Pascal Fournier, I think it really sucks, big time! They picked a ugly cover this time, because their 2 prior albums have great artwork if you ask me.

It's one the greatest Epic\Black albums I've heard so far.

Starting from an average intro (The Torchbearer)
and then when we reached Dance Of Hecate suddenly the snare and riffs
made the album more aggressive to listener
but the keyboard lead it through an epic one (the rhythm is adorable).

Stormlord created a lot of epic\tragic melodies on The Gorgon Cult.

Under the Boards is my favorite song here,
aggressive, a bit nightmarish and delightful at the same time... and have a conclusion at the end.
