Okkultokrati Working On New Album

Okkultokrati has been occupying Malabar Studios, in Oslo, working closely with engineer Emil Nikolaisen of Serena-Maneesh, who also recorded the "Snakereigns" LP, recording around the clock and capturing the tracks as they would be heard on stage, void of click tracks or tutoring tactics.

The band also announces a new member to the outfit, as Feffe Severin joins the lineup on synth. Severin becomes the fifth member of Okkoltokrati, joining vocalist Henning, guitarist Erik Svarte, bassist Boris, and drummer Lars. More...

Okkultokrati Re-Issuing Albums, Teases New Music

Norwegian outfit Okkultokrati will re-issue 2012 album "Snakereigns" and and 2014's "Night Jerks" LPs via Southern Lord this May.

The pair of re-issued albums, which were originally released via Fysisk Format, will act as precursors to the band's impeding full-length, which will be recorded later this month, and released through Southern Lord later this year.

Guitarist and songwriter Erik Svarte comments: "Southern Lord acts like Earth, Velvet Cacoon, Gore, Sunn O))) and Winter have played a big part in shaping our approach to music both personally and in Okkultokrati. To me, a band like Sunn O))) represents something contemporary and we recognize ourselves in that. I can't think of a better home for our band and the new album we just finished writing." More...

With unique guitar atmospheres and a mix of high/low-end riffage busting through the thunderous percussion and gnarled vocals, Okkultokrati are part of the infamous Black Hole Crew scene, their local nihilistic brethren in Obliteration, Haust, Dark Times and a handful of other local henchmen, remain their only comrades. Snakereigns follows-up the band’s No Light For Mass debut, released amidst a handful of EPs, demos and split releases." More...
