Some people hear Chile in association with death metal and think of fantastic bands such as Pentagram and Dominus Xul. Some people, who I think are sadly ignorant of one of the world’s richest metal scenes, don’t think of much at all. Unaussprechlichen Kulten are firmly on my list of classic Chilean bands worth listening to. Much like Drawn and Quartered and Funebrarum, they’ve been operating since the ‘90s but got started just a little too late to be considered a classic band, or to debut when their style of death metal had many fans active. Add that to the issues that all South Americans have with breaking out and you get one of death metal’s most consistent and killer bands being sadly unappreciated in the larger scene, something that I hope will finally change with the band’s fifth full-length album, Teufelsbücher.
