Reviving the spooky spirit of occult-inspired ’60s/’70s bands like Coven and Black Widow, Spanish trio Kabbalah weave a certain uneasiness into their surprisingly catchy strain of doomy psych rock. With the band now poised ready to release their second full-length The Omen on January 15th, we’re proud to be able to bring you a tantalising taste of this alluring record early with the music video for ‘Night Comes Near’.
The track displays the band’s ability to construct infectious riffs backed up by a certain bewitching atmosphere, as if the subtle melodicism is luring you in before the ominous swirling guitarwork and solemn, ritualistic croons can ensnare you once and for all. Despite a retro tone, there’s shades of contemporary rock and metal strewn across The Omen too, making it a dynamic release that’s more progressive than it initially lets on. Be sure to check it out when it drops in full, but for now, enjoy ‘Night Comes Near’ below.
