Fierce, sombre, ritualistic: Akolyth's self-titled debut full-length is nothing less than a taped pledge to the entity which dwells beyond. Drawing inspiration from the aggressiveness and coldness of early '90s black metal, Akolyth combines pounding drumming with harsh guitars and a hopeless-yet-ritualistic atmosphere. The twisted, invoking vocals chant of forbidden rites, devotion, and self-sacrifice to open pathways to the Beyond and truly become one with the Nightside.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Opus Magnum Studios in Brussels, Akolyth's production is forceful and vibrant, but still raw and untamed - a call into a hidden realm between the realities.
