Noctem To Release Album In North America

Metal Blade Records is set to drop Spanish black metal outfit Noctem's current release "Oblivion" in North America on October 25th, 2011. "Oblivion" has been available only as an import until now and is the second part to Noctem's previous release "Divinity." A teaser video for "Oblivion" created by the band can be seen after the jump.

The band commented on the album, "The second part from the trilogy that started with Divinity is going to be the hardest, fastest and darkest opus from the band until the date. The album has been produced by Daniel Cardoso (Anathema, Ava Inferi, Anneke Vangiersbergen…) and recorded in the Ultrasound Studios 2 from Moita, Setubal (Portugal).

"Lyrically, Noctem talks about Mesoamerican cultures, with special attention to the Maya. On this album the band expresses its opposition to the Spanish barbarity, strongly criticizing the colonization and the imposition of Christianity in the lands of the yukata. Again Noctem not hesitate to speak about the cult of blood, the low value of human life and the decrepitude of the mortal soul."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Popol Vuh
2. The arrival of the false gods
3. Universal disorder
4. Abnegation and brutality
5. Invictus
6. Sons of Hun-vucub
