Norwegian mavericks OKKULTOKRATI are reissuing their 2012 album Snakereigns and 2014's Night Jerks LPs via Southern Lord Recordings in May. These releases shall precede their fourth full-length, which shall be recorded later this month, also to be released through Southern Lord.
Guitarist and songwriter Erik Svarte shares his thoughts on joining the 'Lord family..."Southern Lord acts like Earth, Velvet Cacoon, Gore, Sunn O))) and Winter have played a big part in shaping our approach to music both personally and in Okkultokrati. To me, a band like Sunn O))) represents something contemporary and we recognize ourselves in that. I can't think of a better home for our band and the new album we just finished writing."
