The Chilean underground scene has thrived for aeons with great bands playing every brand of extremity. OCCASVS is both unique within that scene and a fitting encapsulation of it, combining black metal with death metal, heavy metal, and more. They lay in wait for years as their long-in-the-works debut album was fine-tuned to their exacting standards. Now Nocturnal Majestic Mysteria is to be unleashed on the world.
A promo video for album track "Union" is available at this location. The song is an 8-minute odyssey through all of the band's startling blend of ideas and influences. Tremolo-picked riffs intertwine around blast beats, and the vocals are growled, shrieked, and even sung in eerie, stentorian harmonies.
"A fascinating blend of occult black metal, death metal, progressive metal, and even a dose of doom. This really is great stuff."
- No Clean Singing
"Great raw and melodic mixture of black and death metal." 8.5/10
- Occult Black Metal Zine
"An outburst of brutality. OCCASVS unfold their musical arsenal through compositions of a high tempo and extreme aggressiveness."
- Queens of Steel
