"War Productions catalogue is really interesting when it comes to quality underground bands. There certainly can be found gems to enjoy. That’s why I was intrigued to listen to the label’s newest release – the Spanish black metal duo-band Cult of Self Destruction with their album “Exitium”.
Now, first of all the name of the band suggests some either apocalyptic harsh raw black metal, or really dark, depressive suicidal black metal with tearing through vocals, screaming for salvation. The coverart of the album also is begging for this. Neither of both really happened when I played the record. M – vocals, keys and drums, and P – guitars, bass, keys, offer us a brave black metal debut, exploring various ideas. In reality the black metal ferocity is well combined with distinctive progressive parts, some doomy melancholy and solitude. " 7.5 / 10

"Cult Of Self Destruction plays a style of black metal that is very raw and misanthropic black metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, misanthropic and occult themes." 8 / 10

Review in Italian
"I Cult Of Self Destruction arrivano su War Productions con un lavoro enigmatico dal titolo "Exitium". Lavoro enigmatico perché la band offre un misto black/death dalle connotazioni doom che lascia abbastanza spiazzati. "Descending To The Deepest Of.." é un brano che potrebbe rispecchiare a pieno questa bipolarità. Se da un lato abbiamo un riffing/drumming in stile Atheist/Cynic, dall'altro abbiamo un black ruvido ma al contempo epico. Il connubio é interessante..."
