Occultist - Hell By Our Hands (2012)
Occultist are a young, female-fronted band from Richmond, VA and Hell By Our Hands is, as far as I can gather, their first EP. Despite being quite short, featuring only four tracks that clock in at just under 12 minutes, Occultist show much promise, bringing forth some well executed vitriolic crust/thrash violence with plenty of d-beat drumming, filthy riffing and angar screaming, courtesy of female vocalist K.Z.
Nothing like starting off the day with some pissed-off, raw, blackened crust punk and a sticky, gooey, delicious cherry strudel.
