TRockmusicRaider Review - Riti Occculti - Tetragrammaton - Album Coverhe 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.  Got hooked?

Antyra – Pentachronist (2015) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Antyra - Pentachronist - Album CoverThis is going to be a first: RockmusicRaider promoting a record containing a whopping five intros (fuck, yeah…), plus a master overture at the very beginning. Some of that stuff dwells outrageously far out in fairy land and is in part so bad you just want to slam the door shut in their face. But you won’t, believe me. Because this whole magic brew somehow sticks to you like goo from the abyss and won’t let you go until you have surrendered your soul to it.

Antyra and their début studio full length album Pentachronist will do that to you. Chaotic, scratchy, dissonant, blackened – and utterly fascinating. Teutonic lyrics spewing your way, mostly in German and some in English. Got hooked? Raid this some more...
