Hard to pin this one down apart from to note that it is well heavy… Okkultokrati have hard rock at their core, but with plenty of influence from punk, post-punk, metal and black metal. New album Raspberry Dawn even finds them adding a synth player into the mix, for even wider possibilities! Dark forest music on Southern Lord.
9/10 gbar Customer review, 9th May 2017
With all the hype and excitement surrounding Kvelertak in recent years, it's only fitting that people are trying to find something in a similar vein. One of those bright sparks is the fellow-Norwegian outfit Okkultokrati, with their latest opus Raspberry Dawn. While Kvelertak use heavy rock to create something that is both upbeat and at high-speed, Okkultokrati opts to take it down an apocalyptic path. It can be fast-paced, with “Hard to Please, Easy to Kill” sounding like Motorhead risen from the depths of hell. But more often than not, they’re treading towards the path of doom, such as the uncomfortably slow and scary "Suspension". This record has been produced with a significant emphasis on the heavy, and with added layers of punk, psych, goth and black metal, Raspberry Dawn makes for an incredible experience from start to finish.
