Blackest of the Black Tourney Discovery Round 3

This round sees trv kvlt second wave BM take on a modern take on the trv kvlt second wave BM sound. Has the student surpassed the masters or do the masters always keep a few tricks up their sleeves?
L.V.X. Occulta

OvDeath - Critically unknown second wave black metal from Germany. This '94 masterpiece was way ahead of its time, with psychedelic riffs and haphazard drumming that wasn't heard of in a time where everyone was dumbing down black metal in an attempt to sound like In the Nightside Eclipse or Transilvanian Hunger. The only comparison I could make would be to the modern black metal masters in NEGATIVE PLANE. You can hear the obvious psychedelic influence in the riffs and atmosphere as well as the clear influence in the drumming style. It's all over the place, often sounds wrong and out of time, but it WORKS:

Nazzadan - Excellent Finnish bm, really captures that early second wave sound excellently. Hautaruhtinas was their 2015 full length, came real close to my AOTY
