With its original inception founded by notorious Death Metal legend Kam Lee (ex-Mantas, ex-Massacre, ex-Denial Fiend), AKATHARTA is a terrifying underworld entity of all unclean spirits; the debut album "Spiritus Immundus" brings forth a wrathful traverse into the macrocosm of the unspeakable.
Densely influenced by the scathing sounds of funeral drone-like masters such as Skepticism and Thergothon, "Spiritus Immundus" features actual EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) captured from all across the globe, giving the overall vibe a breath of dismal and otherworldly condemnation.
Recorded at several studio locations and with the mixing and mastering duties meticulously helmed by Dennis "DerClint" Israel at Clintworks (Amon Amarth, Misery Index, 3 Inches Of Blood, etc), album cover artwork by Malaysian illustrator Irwan Ironworx (Bone Gnawer, Deathevoker, etc) and also with the iconic Lord Of Logos Christophe Szpajdel (Emperor, Old Man's Child, Enthroned, etc) putting his signature stamp on the band logo.

Really well produced and played throughout! Slow and plodding (in places) OSDM but not afraid to go all guns blazing when required. Vocals are akin to cavernous bellows and fit the mood perfectly. Looking forward to a second full length. Should be bigger on the DM scene!! Neil Grace
