In what appears to be the real life version of the "golden ticket" from Willie Wonka fame, German gothic death band Atrocity has told Metal Hammer Germany that the plan for the upcoming "Okkult" trilogy is to take one track off of each of the three upcoming releases, destroy all master tapes, and hide the tracks over three continents - Europe, America and Asia - in a "song treasure hunt," starting with the first release in 2013. The "missing tracks" will neither be maintained by the band nor the record label and will never be played again until they are found. Fans are encouraged to find the tracks.

As for "Okkult," Atrocity's plan is to take the sound back to the band's roots with orchestra parts performed by the Lingua Mortis Orchestra under the direction of Victor Smolski (Rage) and recorded in Minsk.

Atrocity frontman Alex Krull was quoted in the article (translation by Google) as saying:

"With 'Okkult' we want to start a very special album trilogy. We have begun to work a long time ago about it. Most recently with the "Die Gottlosen Jahre" DVD, a complex film strip appeared on our more than 25 year career, which even now is to run at film festivals. Reason enough now usher in a new era of Atrocity! Musically, no prisoners will be taken, the "Okkult" series is also violent, bombastic and bleak. This is not only the toughest and most brutal albums ATROCITY be for years, but also the darkest works of our band's history. Lovers of our hard stuff like "Hallucinations", "Death Wish", "Blood" or "Atlantis" are in the "Okkult" series fully come into their own, although the "Okkult" course material has its own unique touch."
