If one word could describe Akolyth's self-titled debut, it would be twisted.

Shades of the classics are found here, but through the looking glass they are malformed and reshaped into unspeakable horrors. Corpse paint becomes ritualistic garb and the music itself an invocation, summoning monstrous entities from beyond the pale. Akolyth's hypnotic, thrumming black metal turns traditionalism on its head and manifests itself as something completely different, a beautifully corrupted vision of the early 1990s evinced as the horror before you.

Akolyth releases May 29th on Amor Fati Productions.
