The Skinny: It’s only been two years since devotees last drank from the chalice of Cardinals Folly, and now they’re back again with another devastating death-hammer of total doom: their provocatively titled third album, Holocaust of Ecstasy & Freedom, set for international release on June 3rd via Shadow Kingdom Records.

Highly anticipated by those who worshiped at the altar of their classic Our Cult Continues! predecessor, Cardinals Folly indeed continue their cult here, pummeling eardrums and dampening spirits with a veritable Holocaust of Ecstasy & Freedom. Here, we find a more mature version of the band’s iron-clad sound, focusing more on the thundering, time-honored grooves of traditional doom metal. The first fruit of the new album, “Her Twins of Evil,” can be heard above.
