NOCTURNO CULTO’S GIFT OF GODS Releases “Enlightning Strikes” As Free Download

Tuesday, 22nd October 2013

GIFT OF GODS, the new project from DARKTHRONE’s Nocturno Culto has issued the song “Enlightning Strikes” as a free download using the widget below. The song comes from the band’s forthcoming Receive debut.

For GIFT OF GODS, Nocturno turns his hand to creating pure unbridled heavy metal excellence, taking in a vast array of influences from decades past to concoct a special whirlwind of melodic riffing and headbanging anthems on this 30-minute heavy metal pilgrimage.

Due on October 28 on vinyl and CD via Peaceville Records, Receive also features a rendition of “Looking For An Answer,” originally written and recorded by the obscure Swedish ’80s band UNIVERSE.

Receive track listing:

1. Intro
2. Enlightning Strikes
3. Receive
4. Looking For An Answer
5. Last Solstice
6. Outro

A labour of love over several years since its initial inception, GIFT OF GODS sees Nocturno performing all instruments himself and recording the mini-album at his own studio. Receive was mixed and mastered at Enormous Door by Jack Control, who previously worked with Nocturno on DARKTHRONE’s The Underground Resistance album.

Comments Nocturno: “Finally the mini album is done.

“GIFT OF GODS has been a great ride for me. I don’t want this to end now, so I will most likely work on new material.

“Thanks to my partner in crime, K.A. Hubred, we got to rehearse during the last two years.

“What to expect? I have no idea how to describe this, but it’s metal, for sure.”
