Hells Headbangers has announced April 16th as the release date for Cultes Des Ghoules' "Henbane."
Named after an arcane book of black magick in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, Cultes Des Ghoules embody arcane rituals, medieval devil worship, black blood spilling forth, screams from the abyss both nameless and numerous...all of which can be found on second full-length spell, "Henbane." The following press release was also issued about the band:
"Five years on from their classic debut album, Häxan, the mysterious Polish cult take the sulphurous, swilring gnarliness they've plied on their splits in the interim - and particuarly on the preceding Spectres Over Transylvania MLP - and drag it deeper into the eldritch depths.

Listening to this just once, you'll be damned for all eternity..."
