The Occult Waters

Rated 4/5 (80%) (13 Votes)

The Occult Waters, from The Netherlands' Lucifericon, delivers 4 songs (plus an intro) of generic but satisfying Black/Death Metal. The music is fast and angry in some spots, slow and evil in others and is generally on the melodic side while retaining its heaviness. Information about the band is sparse with neither the band's Facebook nor Bandcamp sites giving much information, which ups the "kvlt" factor a bit. The vocals are a low, throaty growl, the riffs are fast, almost like tremolo picking and the drums are assaulted viciously, though somewhat quietly and in the background. The Occult Waters embodies the "you've heard this before" maxim but in spite of that, it is still pretty fun when it is on.
