OKKULTOKRATI ‘SNAKEREIGNS’/ ‘NIGHT JERKS’

NORWEGIAN ROCK ‘N’ ROLL WITH A DARK EDGE. THAT’D BE OKKULTOKRATI THEN. TERRORIZER LOOKS BACK AT THE BAND’S UNDERGROUND CLASSICS THAT HAVE JUST BEEN REISSUED BY SOUTHERN LORD

It’s cool to be the “best-kept secret” of any scene, or a cult band, or something akin to those expressions – but three albums and almost ten years into a faultless career, with your fourth album seeming like it’ll be the freaking motherload (before you ask – we’ve only listened to a song from it so far and it’s awesome beyond description), it all gets really old really fast. Okkultokrati are at that point right now, and it’s high time everyone just put one of their records on and realise how amazing these dudes from Norway are. Southern Lord have stepped in to help – besides releasing the still untitled future full-length that’s got us all sitting on our hands with anticipation, Greg Anderson’s label has also had the wonderful idea to reissue 2012’s ‘Snakereigns’ and 2014’s ‘Night Jerks’, the band’s two previous efforts, just to get everyone up to speed. Do not miss them, alright? There’s no excuse now.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Everyone loves vinyl. Whether people actually play it or simply have it on the shelves to look at and appreciate the artwork in all its glory, while listening to the audio through devices however, is another matter. This month sees a new vinyl release that will ensure that people will actually play their new 12 inches of black stuff. It’s the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ hologram soundtrack vinyl. The week this issue went to print I was fortunate enough to attend a playback of this ingenious (and extremely geeky, yet cool) release. And while I soaked up the atmosphere of Abbey Road’s Studio 2, feeling all the creativity of the room and the vibe contained within, it really dawned on me why this is so special. Star Wars is legendary. Many of us have grown up with the films from an early age and it becomes part of your DNA, without a doubt. Its music is also special, I challenge any band out there to have the balls to cover John Williams’ compositions. And now the new film’s soundtrack gives the vinyl collector a reason to play their record and geek out at the same time. What makes it special? Tristan Duke’s holograms of both the Millennium Falcon and a Tie Fighter that magically appear above the vinyl while the brilliant musicality of John Williams’ composition blasts out of your speakers. Genius! It elevates the whole audio and magical experience to unchartered new heights in the musical world. It’s a soundtrack brimming with depth and of course, it’s affinity with the metal community is inescapable – after all metal is the ultimate Dark Side. So while I go back to my sci-fi world, I’ll let you enjoy this month’s issue! I have loved Nails for years and it’s an honour to have them on this month’s cover. Enjoy reading their story as well as a heap of other great features, news and reviews! See you next month Darren Sadler
