Lucifericon - The Occult Waters (Blood Harvest)

Re-release from the Netherlands.
Release Date: 
30 Aug 2013 - 12:30pm

The Occult Waters was originally released in 2012, but now it’s receiving a decent treatment from Blood Harvest with new artwork and logo and it’s being release in the format 12”MLP.

This is your chance to put your hand on this gem of occult death metal from the Netherlands that resembles the best moments of (old) Pestilence and (old) Sinister and featuring a member from Destroyer 666.

This a real band, not a project, and one can easily hear they are professional musicians, not youngsters trying a new band.

The Temple of Lucifericon shows a packed death metal band with no compromise in their lines of action, brutal riffages, the production is on spot, everything’s perfect but it is on the EPIC song Moon Over Fading Statues that the pharaonic proportions and importance of this band takes place. Lots of parts made like a puzzle to get you lost in a maze of death metal madness. It pushes us back to the glory (and gory) days of Morbid Angel mainly from Blessed are the Sick. A great tune with great passages.

Azazel’s Torch comes in a segue, and despite the great accomplishment of the aforementioned track, this one is also a great pick and leaves no prisoners, the riffs are well done, and although everybody likes to think death metal as a bunch of riffs thrown upon each other, in this case, one can really hear they were COMPOSED, piece by piece… That’s the great differential of this band, they treat their death metal as real music, not as a bunch of mathematical notes to be played as fast as possible. 

The Occult Waters is utterly recommended for old-schoolers and newcomers as well. This is class death metal.
