Noneuclid will release second album "Metatheosis" via Blood Music later this Spring. In the mean time, the band has now revealed the cover artwork created by Aeron Alfrey, which can be seen below. Further details on the the album are forthcoming.
Blood Music has checked in with the following announcement about inking a deal with Germany's Noneuclid:
"Blood Music proudly welcomes to it roster -- the bizarre stylings of Noneuclid. This underground 'supergroup" consists of key members from Obscura, Dark Fortress (Official), Triptykon (Official) (as well as a live member from Celtic Frost), playing indescribable compositions that fall somewhere in the realm of stone-faced thrash mixed with experimental progressive death metal.
"We will be handling full release duties for the band's incredibly long-awaited sophomore album 'Metatheosis.' The album was finished in 2007 and didn't find a home until now, 6 years later!
"We view it as Slayer on acid with heavy doses of monsters and outer space, and the band says of it: 'It's a condensed, multifaceted missile of hyperbolic extreme metal - utterly uncompromising, straight from the heart, and hopefully again a key to unlock very different doors into the psychic multiverse.'
"Once and for all, this album will finally see the light of day. Check a few track from the band's bizarre debut below." More...
A trailer has been posted online featuring "Transition Metal," in which the band Noneuclid performed Richard Wagner compositions while Sinfonietta Essenbach performed a death metal song by Noneuclid. The video can be viewed below, and the following press release was also issued:
"An encounter of the unusual kind was offered on November 12th, 2010 by Sinfonietta Essenbach (a.k.a. Orchester des 13. Tons, conducted by Prof. Ulf Klausenitzer) and the progressive Death Metal band Noneuclid of the Bavarian-Dutch composer Florian Magnus Maier.
"In addition to the 'Rheinische' Symphony by Robert Schumann, Richard Wagner's 'Tannhäuser'-Overture and the final Death Metal set by Noneuclid, both the worlds of classical music and death metal, the music of Richard Wagner as well as Maier's contemporary compositions, were presented in a double-headed interpretation. Classical orchestra and metal band dared enter the world of the other and met in works created especially for that night, crossing boundaries between styles that only seem to be mutually exclusive.

Germany's Noneuclid will present itself in a new incarnation this coming Sunday in the band's home town of Landshut, supporting Dark Fortress and Diabolus Dust after singer Bruce amicably quit the band recently. The band will continue as a compact four-piece - guitarist Morean will take over vocal duties as well from now on.
"We tried different candidates, and my band mates encouraged me to try out for the part myself. Even though for me it is the next big challenge in this band, since my guitar parts and the vocals rarely have anything to do with each other - they hardly ever take place in the same key, rhythm or, at times, even tempo -, I am honoured and excited to continue Bruce's heritage in this band, and we are ready to open the next chapter. Stretching our brains to the utmost to play our complex and at times insane music has always been the modus operandi for us, so in that sense nothing's changing."
The band also added:
"We want to thank Bruce for the years of pleasure and madness we had together, for being a trooper and a good friend, and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
"The band is taking on the future head-on; besides expanding the symphonic repertoire, as they did in 2008 with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra and recently with Orchester des 13.Tons in Germany, plans for a club tour later this year are currently in the making."
NONEUCLID, the project formed in Bavaria/Germany in 2004 by Netherlands-based composer Morean and featuring members of DARK FORTRESS, will release its debut album, "The Crawling Chaos", in January via Merciless Records. A concept LP about the violent and inevitable death of the universe, the CD's lyrics were penned by acclaimed American poet Andrew Hughes.
According to the band's official bio, "musically, NONEUCLID strive to open doors to unknown psychic spaces. While being firmly rooted in extreme metal at all times, they freely blend style elements of death, thrash, black and progressive metal into a unique and gripping concoction. Virtuosity and complexity are not treated as absolute values, but as mere means to achieve a deep and advanced musical vibration. They use unusual instruments such as custom-made sculpture instruments (by German artist Ralf Fischer) and Arabic instruments, as well as subtle electronic and classical influences to explore the rich sound kingdom of extreme metal to the fullest."
