NOCTEM To Commence Recording New Album In July

Thursday, 20th June 2013

Spanish extreme metal band NOCTEM, starting in July, will be holed in studio to commence recording the follow-up to Oblivion. The band have once again tapped Daniel Cardoso (ANATHEMA, ANGELUS APATRIDA, ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN) to produce their third album which is slated for release before the end of 2013.

NOCTEM issued the following statement: “This is our most ambitious work to date. The desire of the band is to enter the studio and see all the captured audio in all its intensity and potential. This new album will be darker, faster and will contain more atmosphere, something we specially worked in to combine the aesthetic of the band and the compositions in all its glory.”

According to a press release, the second part of the trilogy that started with 2009’s Divinity, Oblivion was “the hardest, fastest and darkest opus from NOCTEM to date.” The CD was a “logical progression of the last album, full of new nuances and based in a darker sound and a more complex composition.”
