Occultation first summoned their debut album Three & Seven on CD via Profound Lore Records earlier in 2012, and 20 Buck Spin now conjures the analog representation (with a vinyl-only bonus track) just as Halloween approaches. Occultation creates music perfectly suited to this most undead time of year-eerie, haunted, ghastly, reverberating hymns to double walkers and living portraits. "Eyes inside the wall / Echoes in the hall" vocalist V wails on "Shroud of Sorrows," and indeed this funereal, stained-glass heavy metal exalts the world between. Into their cauldron they stir sinister Italian cinema and soundtracks; the vivid colors of Suspiria; shining, ornate crosses; and obscure horror metal like Black Hole, Mortuary Drape, Jacula and the infamous Paul Chain. The result is a concoction both strong and subtle, not unlike Negative Plane for reasons obvious, but with more incense and fewer rotten corpses. It's certainly the most unique album of 2012 so far, and just the beginning of this dark creation's descent into flames.
