NOCTURNO CULTO’S GIFT OF GODS Streams New Song “Enlightning Strikes”

Wednesday, 9th October 2013

GIFT OF GODS, the new project from DARKTHRONE’s Nocturno Culto is streaming the song “Enlightning Strikes,” a song from the band’s debut album, Receive. The song can be streamed below.

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.”
