A few words from the band about their concept: 'Rites of Daath's general aim is to create a heavy and crushing sound. It blends massive, slow parts with sudden explosions of sheer madness in the faster parts. The band's music is deeply rooted within the death metal underground scene, and it's faithful to the oldschool and raw sound. It was inspired by a variety of death/doom metal acts, such as Necros Christos, Morgoth, Grave Miasma and Asphyx, as well with Celtic Frost and Hellhammer. Dark and intense, the music is a reflection of the lyrical concept, because the music and the lyrics are an entity, and they focus around various alchemical themes, revolve around death and the cult of it. The EP itself evokes the majesty of death, but not only as a power behind everything,but also as a passage to the absolute. The production is 100% natural, without any triggers or a pumped, artificial computer-like sound'.
