Ocultan - Profanation (2005)

The band started in 1994, when Count Imperium - at this time the vocalist and the bass player - got together with the guitarist Cerberus.

After 2 years of searching, in 1996, they found a drummer: Lord Fausto. In June of 1996 was released the first musical register of the band "Eternus Malus". Six months later the band releases its first Demo-Tape "Regnus Ad Exus". Few weeks later, Cerberus decides to leave the band and Count Imperium assumes the Guitars.

Lady of Blood and Count Imperium are married.

Pazuzu Records was actually Lady of Blood's and Count Imperium's label. The first album of Ocultan to be released by the new label Pazuzu Records founded by Lady of Blood. The "Profanation" album was released with two different covers.On the left, 1st cover (limited to 1666 copies) and on the right, 2nd cover (Jesus Christ in his cross with the face of a pig).Sinister Sounds reissued the CD in 2006 with both covers shown.

Otargos - Fuck God-Disease Process (2009)

Dissecting, slicing and recombining the musical DNA of extreme Metal, OTARGOS  achieves exactly the right balance between industrial coldness and powerful fierce metal attacks.

Founded in 2001, in France, and fast gaining in live experience, OTARGOS started following the course of traditional Black Metal.Not content to walk on trodden paths, the band explored new musical and lyrical horizons on their albums "Ten-Eyed Nemesis" (2005) & "Kinetic Zero" (2007), which plunge destructive sonic outbursts into the total chaos of matter, time and space.

OTARGOS bases its philosophy on cosmology and a dark antitheistic vision of humanity and future.

"Fuck God-Disease Process" (2009) and "No God – No Satan" (2010) albums evoke a quantum leap on every level from songwriting via originality to sound. OTARGOS will make you stare into the pitch black abyss of cosmic finitude with a sardonic smile...

Actually a "live" band OTARGOS performed a lot of shows and tours since the beginning. Several tours in France, Europe (with Watain & Destroyer666, Dark Funeral, Svart Crown...) and south America (Brazil).

Now, Joining forces with LISTENABLE RECORDS, 2013 is the year of the 5th album titled « APEX TERROR »More heavy & death metal... more modern and powerful, Simply the best OTARGOS album ever. Upcoming with fresh visual aethetism and thematics, OTARGOS enters a new era of dark extreme metal....

Demonic Christ - Punishment for Ignorance (1995)

Demonic Christ had announced Proscriptor (Absu) and Sabathan (Enthroned), as well as members of Thornspawn as new session members, but these never actually played in the band, finally being replaced by members of Teratism.

If we remember Dana Duffey from Mythic (how could we forget her), maybe we could have some dim ideas about what could we expect from Demonic Christ which is also her project. But we can realize that it's someting different this time.

They are a Black Metal band, and maybe for most of the fans of the genre it could sound strange (or better to say, lame) to see an american Black band, but it also proves that this genre becomed notorious and popular quite fast. And when the underground scene started to exhausting from new things, this direction could show up like some kind of revolutionary new way. And must agree that Dana Duffey and her crew chosed a not so usual way in the USA with this. There Black Metal haven't earned much success for some reason.

To describe their music, it's based on the classic Black Metal bands of the Norwegian scene, the sounding, the style, even the noisy, low quality sounding is just the same. The difference could be that we can find here female cawing vocals, and sometimes deep growling too, which are reminding to their earier season. It could be funny that they also taked the image and appearence style of the Norwegian bands, and I think the medeival viking style and rune writings are a little bit too absurd from an american band, but the music is good afterall. I like all of their short discography.
