With a name like Wargoatcult, it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to have a good idea what kind of music this band plays. If you guessed Black Metal in the Blasphemy style, you’re correct. If you’re expecting something unique and adventurous, you’re going to be disappointed. Pentaprotokhaos is by the books Blasphemy worship, but not in the good way. This may be album number two (there is also a veritable sea of splits and demo recordings by this band as well) but Cum Mortuis, the sole member of Wargoatcult, really needs to work on his songwriting. Everything literally sounds the same. It may have a lot to do with the fact that the drumming consists of Cum Mortuis constantly riding the snare, which sounds like a trashcan lid. The guitars are akin to someone revving a chainsaw, with little variation between songs. Seriously, this whole album could be nine different versions of the same track. I’m not expecting Dream Theater level songwriting, but if this is all we’re going to get, you really only need one EP to get the full Wargoatcult experience. To say that this band is one-dimensional is a vast overstatement.
