OCERCO set release date for new EP A Desolação

OCERCO 2

Official press release:

Signal Rex is proud to present the second EP of one of Portugal’s most promising new bands, OCERCO’s A Desolação. Set to be released internationally on February 5th, 2016, as a special digifile CD nest, limited to 500 copies, A Desolação comprises three seamlessly linked songs of splendor and tension, trance and catharsis. OCERCO’s sound stems from the post-black metal canon, but safely eludes the negative connotations associated with such an appellation. More accurately, the band’s commitment to textural development and labyrinthine, drawn-out construction signal a strive for more complex corridors of spirituality. From there, A Desolação explodes and recoils, twists and turns, always bathed in an aura of the unknown and unease – and yet, its complexities are ever so subtle and most rewarding. Listeners will find a kinship to bands like Wolves in the Throne Room, Altar of Plagues, Ash Borer, and the likes, but across the 20 minutes here, OCERCO stake a claim for their own identity. Be ready for the siege – be ready to be taken by nature herself!

A Desolação track listing:

1. “O Colapso”
