Unholy Lust
Taste the Sin Through the Fire
September 2010
Released: 2010, Blood Harvest Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen

Unholy Lust from Wilmington, California, started out originally as a punk band (formerly known as Los Winoes), but in the course of time, progressed into a metal band. Unholy Lust have released 3 demos and 2 live albums on their own thus far – and now they are a part of the family of Swedish underground label Blood Harvest Records.

TASTE THE SIN THROUGH THE FIRE, the band´s 1st 13-track full-length album studio album, is one hell of a piece of unholy work; quite honestly total Possessed/Sadistic Intent worship, which is never a bad thing. These four fallen souls of Unholy Lust have obviously done their very best in order to sound like a cross between Possessed´s BEYOND THE GATES and Sadistic Intent´s IMPENDING DOOM/RESURRECTION era – hailing their masters somewhat shamelessly on their debut record with evil, totally wicked, dark and old school death metal. And what's best, the Unholy Lust´s twisted horde has succeeded in creating quite a monstrous and infernal sounding record, sounding very deceptively like the incarnation of some sort of side project of either previous and/or current Possessed/Sadistic Intent members – or their cousins who are also heavily armed for creating some evil and dark old school death metal, fully into the Possessed and Sadistic Intent vein. Hell, even Unholy Lust´s vocal demon Alvaro Sancen sounds a lot like Mr. Becerra of Possessed, which is nothing but a definite plus for him.

Unholy Lust is so far the best Possessed/Sadistic Intent copy band I have had a pleasure to become acquainted with. And by ´copy band´ I did not mean anything negative or mocking, but only throwing some extra evil horn signs up for their determined efforts to capture such a similar sound to Possessed´s and Sadistic Intent´s. If you are into those two aforementioned acts, then I assume you might be curious to check out Unholy Lust, too.

Evil. Wicked. Twisted. Dark. Old school. Gotta love this band – I certainly do.
