released December 21, 2015

Philly's CAPE OF BATS have always rejected the tame 'black metal punk' label since 2009, with an onslaught of self-released demos, splits and EPs, barring an appropriate 7" debut EP on Holy Terror Records. Violent Occultism is the zealous result of six years dabbling in black metal, hardcore punk and deathrock, culminating in our quixotic sound of 'vladcore d-bat'.

Violent Occultism features many guest appearances, to include cathedral lead guitar by Rikk Agnew (ex-Christian Death, ex-Social Distortion, ex-Adolescents) on "Ultimate Evil," back-up vox by Matt Slime (Coffin Dust, ex-Exhumed) on "Blue Hands," 3am one-take drunk solo by Rob Orr (Unreal City, ex-Integrity) on "Follow Me (to Death)," screams from Dylan, Tyler & Drew of Angelcrust on "Buckets of Blood," and maddened incantations by Robert Lee Russel & David Prae of Living Decay on "Damned to Sands."

"The Philly-cum-Ireland trio create razor-edged grime rock with both furious speed and infectious witchcraft riffs. The result is a kickass sound where crust punk, black metal, and stoner rock combine in a boiling cauldron of dark thoughts and good times." - MetalSucks.net

"Adorned in a ghastly tone, and focusing on a hostile, rage filled atmosphere, Violent Occultism can be an extreme ride." - MetalReviews.com

"Get hypnotized or get wild: Cape of Bats is equally capable of inducing either in listeners, it’s just a matter of what you bring to the experience." - Black Metal and Brews
