Album Notes
“Okular measures up to bands such as Obscura and Gojira.”
– Rita K. Trondsgård (Scream Magazine)

Oslo’s OKULAR have set March 4th, 2013 as the date on which sophomore effort and Progressive Death Metal tour de force Sexforce will be self-released. The brainchild of composer/lyricist Andreas Aubert, OKULAR again offers the balanced blend of technicality, melody, and brutality first heard on critically acclaimed 2011 debut Probiotic, and yet Sexforce is somehow more accessible and compositionally dynamic than its predecessor. The album’s appeal is further enhanced by the appearance of SUSPERIA’s Athera who performs half of the lead vocals on 7 of the 13 tracks, while BORKNAGAR’s Vintersorg makes a guest appearance on “The Greatest Offender.” Lyrically, OKULAR presents poetry describing aspects of the human existence, in a vital and experientially-based form, rather than as philosophical discourse. In a ringing endorsement of Aubert’s creation, BORKNAGAR’s Øystein G. Brun describes OKULAR as a “death metal parallel” to his own band. It doesn’t get much better than that.

“This might be the future of heavy and relentless Progressive Metal. Okular is Death Metal's Nevermore mixed with Mercenary.”
- Anders Peter Jørgensen (Voices From The Darkside, reviewing the debut album "Probiotic")
