Koen S. : Lecherous Nocturne is here to be brutal and that's what we will discover soon enough! With the release of ‘Occultaclysmic’ they are back again with their fourth long player since 2006. Technical death metal is the trademark of the American band and that is no different this time. Chaotic guitar parts and complicated drum patterns go hand in hand in this devastating sound storm. The vocals of 'new' singer Josh Crouse blend perfectly with the intense and sophisticated guitar game of head virtuoso Kreishloff - this man is a magician with his guitar - and because he does not use guttural gurgles and squeals, but pretty well articulated sharp grunts instead, there is plenty of room to absorb this fast, aggressive music. ‘Occultaclysmic’ sounds pretty dark for a brutal technical death metal album. ‘Remembrence' is a fully instrumental, sad and powerful resting point halfway through the album, 'Planet Of The Crossing' houses a light atmospheric feel and title track 'Occultaclysmic' is reminiscent of Morbid Angel at the time of 'Blessed Are The Sick'. The mixing and mastering was done by Jarret Prichard who formerly worked with Brutality, Exhumed, Resurrection and other death metal warriors. Kreishloff and his team deliver a well worked out, ultra-brutal and technical record that should be checked by any fan of the more extreme genres.
