“We are very proud to have signed with the Argonauta family. We had a few offers from other labels but we choose the one that seemed most professional and cool to us.“ The band states. Rites is an album that digs into the old school occult music influenced by the likes of such as Coven, Black Widow or Sabbath, but with kinda new fuzzy sound, some black metal atmosphere and, especially our love for the occult. We hope you enjoy our sound and the ones who decide to buy this record, will be surrounded by pure and lisegic dark and heavy music.”
