Spain’s occult rockers Kabbalah deliver the thrilling second excerpt off their upcoming album The Omen on Rebel Waves Records and Ripple Music.

Hailing from Pamplona, Spain, Kabbalah was formed on the ashes of local outfit Las Culebras, looming in the dark, esoteric realms of witchcraft and closed door arts. The trio started a prolific cycle of music by self-releasing three EPs (Kabbalah, Primitive Stone and Revelations) between 2013 and 2016, progressing to their 2017 debut album Spectral Ascent.

In the winter of 2021, Kabbalah are coming back to life with their sophomore full-length The Omen, an occult rock grimoire where sticky melodies, funerary riffs and liturgy vocals come together as an impressive and infectious breed of 70s heavy, doom and psych. It will be released through US independent label Rebel Waves Records, Ripple Music’s imprint for all things psychedelic, alt-rock, pop, post-punk and garage.
