Noctum – Until Then… Until the End – Metal Blade Records – Release: Out Now.
“What year?!”. Kyle Reese’s famous words echo through my mind as I play the 7” (and digital) single by Swedish doom & heavy metal outfit Noctum. Right now the band’s writing their third album and this single is the first recording to properly introduce their new guitar player. With two catchy and gloomy songs the bands also gives off a nice introduction of themselves. It really takes you back to the 70s in terms of style and sound recording and if you’re one of the legions of Ghost fans you should really check this band out as well as both songs carry the same kind of occult feel.
Soon the band will embark on a tour through Europe with fellow Swedes Steelwing, so if you love old school heavy metal you should check out this combo!
Score: 3.3 out of 5
