Barathrum - Okkult

Will finish up the late 90's/early 2000's keyboard bloated Finnish black metal cheesefest posts with the immortal Barathrum...Okkult is quite a departure from their early work, where they played a cavernous bass-heavy brand of primal black dirge that sounded more Greek (Necromantia in particular) than Finnish. Expect driving fist pumping keyboards, thrash to bang your head, and chorus' that will stick in it despite the most furious of banging. The keyboards are so predominant in parts of Okkult that it actually sounds like a Vangelis recording...epic, catchy and fun!
