»For Mircalla« is a breathtakingly strong debut from an already formidable band in the world of doom metal. Heavy doom metal masterpiece »For Mircalla« on limited DLP with brand new artwork and powerful new vinyl master!
“This is the work of a band that really understands not only the technical aspects of metal songwriting, but also why it works, and what makes it so good. When I listen to this, I really get a sense of exactly what makes heavy metal such a wonderful style of music. It’s this spirit, this intangible rebellious, yet also intelligent, raw and offbeat kind of quality that intrigues me so much that I get hooked to it for weeks once I get a whiff of its dusty, archaic riffs and leads. I can connect with this kind of music on a higher emotional level. It simply fills me with this really enthusiastic joy, and that’s the best reason I can think of to recommend this to someone else. The best album I’ve heard this year so far.”
Briton Rites plays heavy metal/doom with a heavy occult vibe and Hammer Films-like atmosphere.
Coming from Kentucky, USA, led by Cauldron Born’s Howie Bentley, Briton Rites plays occult doom/British style heavy metal in the traditon of early Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Witchfinder General.
The formation of Briton Rites was inspired by the 1872 novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu titled, »Carmilla«. This album perfectly captures the atmosphere of nineteenth-century Gothic horror in literature, as well as films such as those released by Hammer in the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s.
Enter a world of Gothic Horror and the occult with heavy-as-lead riffing and vocals that evoke images of fogbound graveyards, and vampire women.
»For Mircalla« is a breathtakingly strong debut from an already formidable band in the world of doom metal.
