Okkultokrati

I first came across the name Okkultokrati when it was uttered in the same breath as Kvelertak and the Norwegian collective known as Black Hole Crew which contains Dark Times and Haust. Between that Black Hole association and their involvement in a split with High-on-Fire meets-Unsane badasses Arabrot, it was clear that they shared an aesthetic and influence from bands that I admired.

Okkultokrati is definitely rooted in punk, but in the same way that Venom and Motorhead is. Slithering, metallic black rock and roll with moments of crushing doom is the central theme on Snakereigns, the band's new LP recorded by Emil Nikolaisen of Serena Maneesh and is due October 26 via Fysisk Format. The record recalls the crunch of modern "Boss Heavy Metal" hardcore/grind, epic doom and the great Midnight while keeping the latter's fun vibe. Raise your fist to the first track to emerge from Snakereigns, "No Ouroboros," and look for the LP in October. Its a ripper.

So far no US dates to speak of. Until then, stream some new and old Okkultokrati below.

@7:37
Did you even read the post?

"WHO??????"

Okkultokrati.

There are even songs for you to listen to.

Perhaps you already did? I mean, you did share a truly insightful critique. Who do you write for again? I'd love to read more of your well-thought-out reviews.

All of your pizza and sausage comments are super original. What are you guys currently listen to? Seriously? What new bands do you think are doing something new? Whatever... just post some more comments with arrows pointing up at mine "^ this guy's just butt hurt that his shift at Little Neros isn't over till 3AM."

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 1:27 PM

I bet all the negative comments are from people that didn't read into them and assumed they were just some new Brooklyn boy band. Well, they're from Norway. Does that make you guys feel more secure? Do they still pose a threat of stealing your girlfriend that barely likes you, cause you just sit on the computer all evening? Maybe they'll end up finger blasting that tight cunt when they eventually/hopefully tour here. In that case, keep the extremely original food comments comin, ya fucking ninnies

Lay off the pizza 5:43, you're fat enough. Maybe consider walking to the pizzeria? I can smell the grease on your keyboard!
