Noctes - Pandemonic Requiem

This band came out of absolutely NOWHERE for me. Having never heard of them prior to a small taste received through YouTube I was hooked the instant that their melodically-edged cacophony of blackened metal shot out of the gate. Easily addictive and quite possibly climbing to the top of my Black Metal list with each listen. The guitars have the perfect mix of lo-fi chill and sharp contrast to deliver their melodic pummeling and the drums call the thousands to war. Absolutely punishing and not really all that abrasive for the band's pedigree. Definitely a really enjoyable listen and full of memorable moments that will keep you entranced in their beautifully macabre sound.


For fans of: Emperor, Peste Noire, Lightning Swords of Death and Dissection
