Aluk Todolo is an instrumental trio from France, that draws inspiration from various genres including krautrock, black metal, downtempo... even surf parts can be heard. Their third studio album Occult Rock, serves as quintessential work, displaying the bands musical repertoire. Some of the songs have been in development since the band's formation in 2004, while others are relatively new.
All songs were recorded live, in one take if I'm not mistaken. These eight tracks, each of them capable of standing on it's own, create a sonic journey when listening to the entire album.
