Noctum Signs To Metal Blade Records

Swedish occult rock act Noctum has signed a deal with Metal Blade Records. The band was formed in September 2009 by bassist Tobias Rosén, David Indelöf (Vocals/Guitar), and Gustaf Heinemann (Drums). After a short while Per Wikström (Guitar) came along. In October of 2009 the band recorded its first songs and after only two weeks was signed with the German label High-Roller Records for the upcoming full-length album.

In June 2010 Noctum entered Studio Oblivion for the first time to record that debut album. With less than 24 paid studio hours the act recorded "The Séance," which was released through High-Roller Records (vinyl) and Stormspell Records (CD) in September 2010.

Noctum decided to make the band's first trip to Germany for a couple of dates in April 2011. After touring the act went into the studio once again to record the upcoming EP "The Fiddler," including two brand new tracks and one Pentagram cover of "Lazy Lady."

Noctum comments on the deal with Metal Blade as follows: "We're very pleased to announce a new chapter in Noctum's history! We have now signed a worldwide record deal with one of the leading record labels, Metal Blade Records! We're thrilled to work with such experienced people – people who started out as regular tape-traders back in the days and worked their way to the top among thousands of labels. People who have managed to stick around and keep the fire burning, stronger than ever before. This is a new beginning, Stay tuned."

After the summer Noctum decided to split ways with guitarist Per Wikström and the group is now looking for a replacement. If you live in Sweden and would like to join this journey, please send an email to seanceswe@gmail.com.
