SAQRA'S CULT - FORGOTTEN RITES

Saqra's Cult - Forgotten Rites Dice 6

Amor Fati Productions, 08.06.17
Saqra's Cult is a new and hopeful band from Belgium. Only he in hell knows when the band was started, though. The band dropped the demo Initiation to Forgotten Rites in 2015. An apt title, as it contained two songs from this album.

The band is now ready to perform these lost rides. That is, the album has actually been out digital and on vinyl since January, but at least they're ready to invade the sphere of your pitiful shack.

PRAISE THE FLAME - MANIFEST REBELLION (Re-release)

Praise The Flame - Manifest Rebellion Dice 4

Caverna Abismal Records, 04.09.17
For fans of blistering extreme metal permeated by occult moods, comes a relatively new band that may be well worth noting.
The Chilean quartet Praise The Flame was lit on fire in 2012, and has previously released demo and EP before participating on a split.
The album Manifesto Rebellion ain't brand new, but the version that's now being promoted, still has sticky ink on the booklet that'll hopefully dry up before the fans get their clammy hands on it.

SEPTICFLESH - CODEX OMEGA

Septicflesh - Codex Omega Dice 5

Season of Mist & Prosthetic Records, 01.09.17
In these days, our Greek friends release their tenth album, the fourth after the reunion and a minor name alteration ten years ago.
The band has, as on the three previous albums, used an authentic symphony orchestra. Like the two previous discs, this one consists of ten songs and lasts for about three quarters of an hour. And as the previous release, the music's expression is cast in the same mould.
Whether or not these factors contributed to harden my pursue of the right words to convey it remains unknown, but this has been one long-in-the-making review.
