Occlith – Gates, Doorways, and Endings

Release date: 01 May, 2020

Label: Transylvanian Tapes

Release type: Full-length

Best track: A Pit of Severed Hands

Deeply emotional and sincere, Gates, Doorways, and Endings reeks of old, ancient death.

Soundtrack to a trudging funeral procession, Occlith’s debut full length is like an exhalation from an open burial mound. Through quintessentially a Doom release (slow but never too slow), the record has a crushingly evil backbone and both distinct psychedelic moments and heavier, almost Blackened passages. A discerning use of clean and harsher vocals helps complete an atmosphere suspended between life and death, always right on the thin line.

A morose album if there ever has been one, for all those secretly (and less so) obsessed with death.
