"So face the dark and I’ll teach you about fire in a blink of an eye" sang Deathstars in their famous song "Cyanide", which launched them to the stars in the melodic metal compartment. They enchanted our souls by their unique approach to music by delivering the aestheticism of ugliness and have probably become the fastest growing band after the release of their second album, Termination Bliss. And if female fronted bands exploit the good looks of their singers to amuse the male audience, Deathstars are a treat for us, ladies. Perfectly shaped Bernadotte is not only the modern Adonis in flesh, but his haunting and deep as the abyss vocals sound so seductive and eloquent, it is impossible to resist him. In any way. The Perfect Cult doesn’t bring anything new from the band's camp, as their distinctive sound is still based on the use of simplistic, but striking guitar riffs, mixed with quite a heavy use or keyboards. And of course, creating an atmosphere, no one else can: seductive, dark, striking and captivating. Time will tell whether the listeners will embrace the contrast between the first and the second half of the album or simply choose one half as a predominant and preferred. But this release definitely marks a new point in the evolution of Deathstars, as the band showed us they still got it and can still deliver an album, everyone will be talking about.
