Throcult (formerly known as Throat Culture) makes quite an impact with their release De Facto, an album that mutilates the listener's ears with searing death metal panache and outrageous industrial fury. Throcult has managed to create an album that surely could turn anyone's pleasant dreams into twisted nightmares. De Facto has an aura of underlying evil just brooding beneath the surface, yet in a roundabout way the music carries a very uplifting rhythm throughout the album due in large part to Brian Fisher's synthesized subtleties. Chris Vigil's bestial growls resonate with pent up ferocity, and his slightly creepier singing adds a cloak of mysterious darkness over every song. This is certainly an album that draws the listener in, and while at times one may think they are listening to the latest horror movie soundtrack, De Facto leaves one hell of an impression.
