The second full-length from Santiago, Chile’s Ocultum, Residue, was first issued by the band independently in 2019. Picked up for a vinyl release through Interstellar Smoke Records, the four-song/49-minute long-player (bong)rips into filthy-fuzz doom and scabbed-over sludge, the lumbering coming in one longform nod after another in “The Acid Road” and “Residue” itself — which might be the most densely-toned inclusion of the bunch, but it hardly matters when the 16-minute “Ascending With the Fumes of the Dead” and the 12-minute “Reflections on Repulsiveness” and you’re either on board with Ocultum‘s periodically-deathly-always-fucked style by then or you’ve probably been so grossed out that you’ve gone and gotten yourself a job, decided you were never really so misanthropic to start with, and that what you thought was the inner scum of your existential makeup was just you needing to have lunch or take a shower or some shit. Meanwhile, Ocultum are over here shrooming up and worshiping decay. Different league entirely. Even the quietest moments of Residue are heavy. There’s just no escape from it.
"I won’t front I’m a little late to the game but Ocultum is an unholy Fucking Awesome Sludge band! Damn, everything about them is straight grimy AS FUCK! Their way use feedback and space to create this killer drugged-out effect is so rad. On the real, their songs are Sonic Acid trips wrapped in the sleaze and pain of old school delta blues! I really want to stop writing this feature so that I can go and get high. While having Ocultum’s “Residue” blasting in the background! If you are a fan of whiskey-soaked sludge and not a fan of this band you need to get your ears checked out! Now it’s time for y’all to check out their fuck the police visual for their song “The Acid Road,” plus a rad live stream that they just released! We want to salute Black Bow Records for putting out Ocultum’s record “Residue”. It’s never too late to get tuned in to a new band so I’m stoked on life. This band fucking kick ass!!!"
"The eternal Jam to which Ocultum has the pleasure of inviting us, in just 4 songs of extra duration (9 to 15 minutes) capable of blowing your head with a profane and intense mix of Doom, Sludge, Metal and Stoner, in a vision that draws psychedelia to the devastated and dark landscapes of 'Residue'. With just a few minutes, we go around between tonalities that reward the ear more Rock, based on an epic journey of ruinous and bestial characteristics, in acid, ready to swallow the world with its inexhaustible screams and guttural chants. Sounds good, sounds powerful and slowly strong; imagine listening to them live songs that were born precisely for this, taking advantage of the benefits of the study when it comes to squeezing the most hard-working mind of a band with enough to say."
"In "Residue" we see or better hear a band playing passionate stoner / doom with the right attitude, beautiful orchestration and which sound lovers will appreciate!"
"Sus muchos rangos vocales, la introducción en diversos géneros, la tétrica ambientación que siempre acompaña a estos redondos. Todo esto se manifiesta dentro de ese marco de destructiva crudeza. “Residue” contiene un caos sonoro como para hacer temblar los cimientos del planeta ante unos registros instrumentales totalmente devastadores, y caracterizando por encima de muchos, un género en el que son pocas las formaciones que ya pueden llamar la atención. A buen seguro, este es el mayor secreto de Ocultum y su nuevo “Residue”, el martillazo definitivo que orquesta el apocalipsis inminente."
