German black metal horde OCCVLTA have come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2004. With only two legitimate releases under their literal bullet belts ('We Command the Wolves' demo in 2010 and a split single with UK hooligan rockers Salute in 2012) and select live appearances over the last seven years (which includes festivals such as Live Evil in London and Berlin, Muskelrock in Sweden and Metal Magic in Denmark as well as a US tour in 2012), it is perhaps a sign, then, that the trio's—brothers Torm (drums), Hord (vocals) & Vrgh (guitars)—highly-anticipated full-length, 'Night Without End,' will finally see the light of day 13 years later this June, 2017.

Where most black metal bands these days front an image of "magick" and "spells," OCCVLTA are thankfully the real deal: unabashedly arrogant and oblivious to trends. They carry with them the perfect blend of naive enthusiasm (Hellhammer) and underground ignorance (Darkthrone) with an unfiltered rock n' roll danger (GG Allin), and it shows not only within their explosive live sets but also in their music. Every facet of OCCVLTA is nothing but pure honesty, not just with themselves but with their total artistic vision. Black metal has never been this raw, primitive, crushing and pure since the mid-90's.

Having released two EP's and a full-length album since their inception in 2009, New York City's only Defenders of Old Metal returns in August with a brand new 7" entitled The Invitation via Electric Assault Records. The two-song EP is a culmination of the band's experiences since 2012's LP, Head of Death (Earache Records), which saw the four-piece Weibust on lead vocals and lead rhythm guitar, Dino Destroyer on lead guitar, The Mexicutioner on lead bass and Tooth Log on lead drums and lead vocals touring the United States and Europe and performing festivals in Canada, Sweden and in their hometown of Brooklyn, NY at the Defenders of the Old festival, with bands like Exciter, Riot, Brocas Helm and The Rods. The band has come a long way in six years and The Invitation is a testament to its continuing development.
