OKKULTOKRATI is keeping their fire alive with their new album La Ilden Lyse, which translates roughly to “Keep The Fire Burning,” now announced for release through Southern Lord Recordings in May. The lead single from the LP, “Kiss Of Death” is now streaming.
La Ilden Lyse is an album of pure, cold, grim, rawness. Themes of enduring life, transcending death, worshiping the moon, and triumphant, satanic darkness are all at play here, and the album sounds harder, faster, and nastier than ever.
The band offers, “OKKULTOKRATI has always been more than being a band, making music, touring and making music. “Striving to be something beyond the mundane and trivial. It’s an attitude. In defiance. To everyone and everything. To not chase after trends. To seek truth in music wherever it takes you. To be an outsider and an outlaw, even though it makes you a freak. La Ilden Lyse is music for the misguided, the conspiratorial, the unappreciated and unwanted. It’s black outlaw metal. It’s a beacon in the dark, for desperate times.”
No more messing around. Keep it black, keep it metal, all the time.
