Album Reviews

"...this is probably going to be one of the top five releases of the year. Actually, make that likely top one. Definitely one of the best of the decade. Get it?"

Stanley - Deaf Sparrow

"I have absolutely no issue at all in deeming this an Album Of The Year candidate, Cultic have an incredible album on their hands here and one I cannot recommend enough for you to check out for yourself..."

Sam Jones - The Razor's Edge

"It’s a dismal, primitive, and increasingly frightening experience, an infliction of caustic doom that suffocates hope but will also elevate your pulse rate ..."

Islander - No Clean Singing

"Of Fire and Sorcery could be the soundtrack for a sword-and-sorcery movie, naturally shifting moods from fantastical and otherworldly to grim and frostbitten."

Vince Bellino - Decibel

"Of Fire and Sorcery is a celebration of the strange, shadowy corners of heavy metal that have managed to remain unpolished and abhorrent throughout the years."

Ted Nubel - Invisible Oranges

"It’s a dismal, primitive, and increasingly frightening experience, an infliction of caustic doom that suffocates hope but will also elevate your pulse rate ..."

Islander - No Clean Singing

"For a very specific type of metal nerd, a type I happen to belong to, this record is a really special and one-of-a-kind thing. Gloriously nerdy but also crushingly heavy, and one that is not to be missed."

Matt Bacon - Two Metal Guys Reviews

"... imagine more recent Darkthrone rotating too slowly on your turntable and repeatedly interrupted by a 70s alien/space B-Movie brand soundtrack that sometimes blurs into something new. All kind of quirky, but with a lot of charm and soul. 'Of Fire and Sorcery' makes sense ..." "You just have to try it to understand what I mean."

Alucard - Hell Is Open

Lyrics

Beseech the Olden Throne


You will ride on the darkened wind
To the land of a cryptic realm
Beseech the olden throne
From the depths of the iron shrine

You will feel
A master’s glory
They're enthralled
By your rise

Cry out to the ancient ones
For the spell of a hidden rite
Beseech the olden throne
Peer through the dragon’s eye

Prime ascension
Magical will
Become the lord
Of the realm

You will learn to transcend time
Through the fog of a mystic’s haze
Beseech the olden throne
Behold the dragon’s gaze

Steadfast valor
Towering might
Wield the power
It's your domain!

Potion

Without warning
The pit awaits
A poisoned oath
To subjugate

Devoid of mercy
Your fate is sealed
As your tears
Flood barren fields

Potion!
Potion!
Potion!
Potion!

(Ahhhhhhhhhh!)

Come to heel
My gaze is upon you
Bow to the majesty of my throne
Covet my power
I am all you desire
As you're crushed under the weight of my spell

(Hahahahahahahahaha!)

A hidden rite
Drink the wine
And from the depths
Revenge is mine

Potion!
Potion!
Potion!
Potion!

(Ahhhhhhhhhh!)

Warlock

A secrete bastion
With gates of steel
Contains a specter
Of magic and might
Sworn to the shadows
A veiled life
You must take heed
To the mystic’s vision

You will see the Warlock!
Warlock!
Warlock!
Warlock!

Born of the dragon
And forged by a spell
Destroyer of fools
Dealer of Woe
Chained to an oath
Of fire and fury
You must take heed
To the will of the wizard

You will meet the Warlock!
Warlock!
Warlock!
Warlock!

You'll see the world
Through the dragon’s eyes
A dreamlike vision
You will ride on the wind
A seeker’s journey
Through fragments of time
You must take heed
To the summoning of the seer

You've become the Warlock!
Warlock!
Warlock!
Warlock (lock lock lock lock lock lock lock)!

The Tower

Within a veil of shadows
Is where the tower stands
Behind these cursed walls
I will rule this land!

Meet my Wrath
In the Tower!
Meet my Wrath
In the Tower!

You will kiss the dragon’s crown
On my rise to glory
You will bow to my throne
Entranced by wizardry

Meet my Wrath
In the Tower!
Meet my Wrath
In the Tower!

(Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….)

Meet my Wrath
In the Tower!
Meet my Wrath
In the Tower!

Arrival of the ancient signs
Fulfills my prophecy
I've become a fucking god!
Hate will flow through me!

Iron Castle

A savage fear
Immured in the walls
Mournful souls
Adorn the halls

Iron castle
Iron castle!
Iron castle
Iron castle!

A traitor’s fate
The iron cage
Fills caustic dreams
Full of rage

Iron castle
Iron castle!
Iron castle
Iron castle!

The witches leering
Within the keep
The maze of time
Is what they seek

Iron castle
Iron castle!
Iron castle
Iron castle!

They are the lock
And they are the key
Born of fire!
And sorcery

Iron Spider

(Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaa!)

I will take you
Behind those cursed walls
Through the veil
Under an acrid fog
I have foreseen
Dark days ahead
And now I'll torment you
Until you're dead!

Coming down
(Iron spider!)
To the ground
(Iron spider!)
Full of fright
(Iron spider!)
Feel the bite
(Iron spider!)

Injecting venom
inside your feeble mind
Distorted visions
Your soul’s maligned
Ensnared by darkness
Broken by screams
And now you'll see your fate
I haunt your dreams!

You are bound
(Iron spider!)
In the web
(Iron spider!)
Full of fear
(Iron spider!)
Pain and dread
(Iron spider!)

Eh!

About Album

Take heed! Cultic have emerged from the battlefield to unleash their sophomore curse upon you! “Of Fire and Sorcery” is a psychedelic journey through a world where magic and might are paramount. From this realm, Cultic weave a bizarre tapestry of extreme doom, black metal, traditional heavy metal, martial industrial, and dungeon synth — an amalgamation that propels listeners into an outlandish universe that is not a place for the meek.
