The Occvltists are loose again. Earlier in 2016, RockmusicRaider already covered ritual #metal – Black Metal style to be precise – with Darkend. But this one here is different, much different.
The Italian band Riti Occulti saddles you with a pretty sticky, ceremonial brand of Blackened Doom Metal in Tetragrammaton. The album is signed to Nordavind Records and Triton’s Orbit.
As the title suggests, Riti Occulti dive deep into Kabbalistic lore. The record does follow a pretty sturdy theme and logical flow, backed by corny lyrics that are pure cult. But I leave it to the specialists of the occult to figure out where this is all heading.
