Germany’s back-to-basic’s black metal outfit Occvlta are one of the scene’s most beloved treasures. Since their official inception back in 2004, this now-quartet has only come up from the underground for air on a few occasions, knocking peers and fans alike off their feet every time.
Their 2010 demo ”We Command the Wolves” gained attention for its raw and minimalist approach to extreme metal – drawing influence from Hellhammer, Celtic Frost and Darkthrone, with a distinct punk edge. An impressed Fenriz picked them as one of the very first acts for ”Band of the Week”, subsequently leading them to play the first edition of Live Evil festival in London together with acts like Angel Witch and soon-to-be-famous Ghost.
In 2012, the band released a split 7” with Salute, followed by tours in North America and the UK. Since then, Occvlta’s very few, selected appearances has only sparked the interest for this band, and their upcoming 2017 debut full-length album is much anticipated. This is non-conformist, primitive metal to the core.
Titled ”Night Without End”, the album will be released in the spring on Dying Victims Productions on CD and Electric Assault Records on vinyl, followed by tours in Europe and North America.
