ATMF is proud to repress a classic for the underground dealers. This album sets a mark to the Black metal scene spiritual evolution.
“Be transported to another place and time, entering a different mindset, embracing an era alien to the dysfunctional defects of modern consumerist materialism. So potent are the spiritual, ritualistic mantras presented on “De Occulta Philosophia” that they escort us (back) – entranced, enraptured, spellbound – to an altered state, unveiling a new yet ancient dimension of Black Metal. So powerful the calls to nature; so dark these entreaties to the elements; so dissonant the summoning of primitivism. Spells resonate like tattoos across the consciousness, transmitting a trance-like transcendence. An inner peace. A stillness. An acceptance. Shamanistic chants, druidic drones, tribal tapping and ancient atmospheres merge together, raw and rhythmic, bleak and blissful. An atmosphere so dense, you can touch it.”
