Lecherous Nocturne have been around for just over twenty years now, and in that time, they have been trying to expand upon the possibilities of what brutal and technical death metal can do and be. They haven’t always been successful in those attempts, but it’s hard not to admire such ambition. Now on album number four, with Occultaclysmic they have recorded the album they have previously hinted at being capable of. Rather than completely reinventing their old Suffocation-inspired sound, they have instead modified it, adding the kind of nightmare atmospherics of Incantation and Portal. It’s a very effective combination of sounds, and makes Occultaclysmic their best album to date.
