An animist perceives all things - animals, plants, rocks, rivers, oceans, and mountains - as animated, and it all comes to life in Octohawk’s debut album. 
With Animist, the Norwegian 5-piece denotes not a single creed or doctrine but a diverse otherworldly landscape of progressive, melodic, and abrasive music. Filled with thundering beats, heavy riffs, ripping vocals, and entrancing soundscapes, Animist represents the shapeless nature of real chaos. 
The album, comprised of 10 crushing tracks, is an eventful experience. Rich in content and surprises, this album will delight all fans of sludgy, proggy, and groovy heavy metal.
Detached from all boundaries, Animist soars through many metal genres - seamlessly from powerful to ethereal and back with dual momentum. 
With their debut album Animist, Octohawk lays down a solid foundation for their musical universe.
