2019 will see Portuguese Death Metal beasts OKKULTIST “Reinventing Evil”! The up&coming band, who is the first one that inked a worldwide deal ever with MOONSPELL Fernando Ribeiro’s new label ALMA MATER RECORDS, is set to release their brutal debut of an album Reinventing Evil on March, 15th 2019.
To kick off the new year in evil style, OKKULTIST are sharing the album opening track, which has just been premiered with NO CLEAN SINGING, now available on Bandcamp! Says vocalist and demoness Beatriz Mariano: “We chose to release “Reinventing Evil” because it’s a punch in the face — it’s a small taste of the pain we have ready to bring you!”
Taste the evil OKKULTIST is unleashing upon you right HERE!
Reinventing Evil was produced by Pedro Paixão (Moonspell) and the band, tracked at the Poison Apple Studios in Lisbon and amazingly mixed by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, Moonspell, The Haunted). With a total of 8 rabid and brutal songs, the band’s debut will see the light of the day via Moonspell’s Fernando Ribeiro ALMA MATER RECORDS in two digipack editions. One of them will come with a limited, different artwork and it will contain a Bathory cover song ‘Satan Is My Master’. Furthermore the evil spell and album tracklist will read as follows:
1. Reinventing Evil
2. Back from the Dead
3. Sniff the Blood
4. Sign of the Ripper
5. I am the Beast
6. Grave Digger
7. Plasmodium Nocturnus
8. Rise and Reign
9. Satan Is My Master (Bathory Cover / CD Bonus Track)
ALMA MATER RECORDS boss and MOONSPELL vocalist Fernando Ribeiro comments:
“OKKULTIST is the kind of band the Portuguese scene needs: talented, young, focused and just fucking brutal. Portuguese Death Metal has never sounded so exciting in my ears so we can’t wait to release this beast upon you and help you to reinvent evil together with this amazing Portuguese talent.”
OKKULTIST formed back in late 2015. Two years and memorable live shows later, their debut EP ‘Eye Of The Beholder’ was released by the band independently, but caught up and spread all around Europe and overseas – selling out every single printed copy.
Even at this early stage, OKKULTIST already had the honor to curse stages such as at Mosher Fest or Female Growler United Front in Portugal and as an opening act for legendary names such as Entombed AD. Inspired by the likes of Master, Abomination, early Morbid Angel, Death or Dismember, OKKULTIST pick up where impure 90’s Death Metal left. Better be prepared for some infernal vibes and a deadly raw, new Death Metal brand this upcoming March, when OKKULTIST will be REINVENTING EVIL!
