Riti Occulti showcase their form of black metal – one that blends inextricably with doom and ritualistic music. This is a hybrid, a mythical beast, drawing its power from ancient spiritual rituals. The music of Riti Occulti (Italian for “occult rituals”) is hypnotic and unsettling; eerie female vocals from Elisabetta Marchetti conspire with rasps from Serena Mastracco (Vidharr) and eccentric occult sounds creating a strange, intriguing and suspenseful timeless form of music ranging from Sabbath-esque doom of the ’70s, to ancient exotic sounds of the East, to the contemporary, hazy black metal of Europe.
Originally released in 2012, Nordavind Records is set to unearth this remastered and reissued edition on 23 February via Plastichead. Pre-orders are available right here (and the good news is that it’s only €10 with free worldwide shipping).
