Dark Occvlt Ritual are a 1 man band from Brazil that is a side project of the black metal band C.O.F.O.C with a musical style I would describe as being occult dark ritual ambient and this is a review of their 2013 album "Oro Per Nex" which was released by Black Evil Productions.
Sound effects bring in elements of experimental, ritual, and dark ambient to create a sound of their own bring a dark occult ritual to the album and there are no other instruments present on this album.
Vocals are all spoken word ritualistic passages along with some whispers that bring in some black metal elements, while the song themes cover Occultism, Rituals and Left hand Path practices, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with most of the songs being very long and epic in length.
