Doomcult - Failure Of Life - Reviewed By metal-division-magazine ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.metal-division-magazine.com/cd-reviews/cd-reviews-d/doomcult-failure-of-life/
Three compositions should be mentioned at this point as examples of the harmonious diversity of "Failure of Life" between small finesse, metallic heaviness and beguiling elegy: "Align" , the melancholy "Failure" as the undoubtedly most uncompromising piece of music and fall, which really hits the brake pedal kicks. "Prophecy" overwhelms with its delicately translucent moments that defy all desolation. "Genesis undone", the doom monster "The Final ride of Death", the beautiful "Serpent" wafts over the entire season with a thoroughly evil atmosphere.
In addition, there is a beautifully powerful, but clear, earthy production that fits the material of "Failure of Life" very well, as well as an excellent artwork. The six-stringers sometimes scrub down a frosty board in very successful duets, which really sounds like Metal. "Failure of Life" takes a few listens to get stuck in your ear canals. It's certainly not a record to be casually listened to, at least not if you want to catch the finer details. metal-division-magazine

Doomcult is a solo project by J.G. which came alive with the recording of debut album End All Life, which was released by Morbid Syndicate in 2016 and which received many great reviews. In 2018 doomcult returned with the EP Ashes, released by Loneravn Records, followed by the second full length Life Must End released by Narcoleptica Productions. Now, Dutch doom-metal outfit Doomcult returns with their third album titled Life has Failed, released by Kvlt and Kaos. One hour of doom influenced by traditional doom, 90s doom/death (Anathema, Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride), funeral, and bits of sludge. As always, Doomcult offers eerie atmospheres, plodding drums and sic melodies, combined with intense screaming. Thematically, Doomcult remain true to their own misanthropic discography, with blasphemous anti-establishment lyrics. For the first two albums Doomcult was hailed for their songwriting, now their songwriting sounds better than ever thanks to a superior production and the guest appearance of Rens van Herpt (Treurwilg) on vocals. The deep growls of Rens are combined with the screams by J.G. to give more diverse vocals. Doomcult will recruit a life band if there is a good opportunity to promote Life Must End.
