The Swedish heavy/doom metal outfit NOCTUM will enter the studio later this month to record a 7″ for a vinyl and digital release through Metal Blade Records in August, followed by the ‘Fly By Night‘ tour with Steelwing.
NOCTUM comments: “The two tracks of the upcoming single marks the natural step after ‘Final Sacrifice’. There would be no point doing a ‘Final Sacrifice pt.2′. Soundwise some people might be just as suprised as ‘Final Sacrifice’ did compared to ‘The Séance’. We’re writing material for our upcoming album and this is a small taste of what to come. Keep spreading the word and see you soon.“

Two Swedish bands with a lot in common! Though their sonic ideals are firmly rooted in the past, they are exploring the future of underground metal through creative songwriting and unusual genre crossovers. Both bands are currently returning to the scene with new material after years of silence and are joining forces for a European tour in the fall of 2015.
Starting off in the United Kingdom and continuing on a campaign through continental Europe, these brothers in arms are psyched about finally hitting the road together to present a wide palette of heavy, doom, speed and thrash metal soaked in the sweat of do-it-yourself punk mentality. Ears will bleed, heads will bang and fists will be raised triumphantly as a new metal movement dawns – where will you be? Promoters: if you’re interested in booking this tour package, email firstname.lastname@example.org or Enzo at Rock the nation!
In other news, Daniel Johansson has decided to leave NOCTUM. Christoffer Löfgren (BLADE) will now serve as the new guitar player of NOCTUM. Christoffer joined the band on their previous tour, did a phenomenal job, and earned his place in their lineup. The latest addition will leave a mark and be a huge impact in the sound and development of NOCTUM!
