NOCTUM will release their sophomore album and Metal Blade debut Final Sacrifice tomorrow via Metal Blade Records. Final Sacrifice is a fictional horror story where each song communicates a portion of the overall narrative. Bloody-Disgusting, the online home for all things horror is hosting an exclusive stream (THROUGH TONIGHT ONLY) of Final Sacrifice. Accompanying the album's premiere, members of the band have taken each song and dissected them providing their own narrative on the tracks and how they were influenced by and could relate to classic horror films. Listen to the stream and check out the bands track-by-track breakdown HERE.
Final Sacrifice can be ordered at http://www.metalblade.com/noctum. The album is available as a standard CD as well as in an exclusive bundle package with a limited edition T-Shirt.
A lyric video featuring live footage captured by Johan Bengtsson for the song "Temple of the Living Dead can be viewed HERE.
Final Sacrifice is an analog piece of art in both audio and visual aspects. The artwork and track listing have been revealed. The cover art was painted by Timo Ketola (Sunn o))), Arktau Eos) and fits perfectly with the album's raw, natural sound.
NOCTUM's search for original and interesting material led them to a heavier and darker sound then their first release. The progression came very naturally for the band and differs from the typical 70's vibe. Final Sacrifice evokes heaviness and emotion one might not expect from a "retro" sounding band.
Final Sacrifice Track Listing:
David Indelöf - Guitar/Vocals
