Metalunderground.com has obtained the exclusive premiere of Austin, Texas death/thrash band Nokturnel's new song, entitled "Ancestral Calling." This song is the band's first new recording in two years. The band hopes to release more new material before Maryland DeathFest 2011.
Lyrically, Ancestral Calling ended up becoming a prequel to "Legend of the Wolven" from the "Fury Unleashed" album. Musically, this song stands on its own, once again covering new territory for Nokturnel. Stevens composed everything, recorded all vocals, guitars, and bass. Session drummer Chad Walls who played on the "Demonic Supremacy" single returned to keep Nokturnel from dealing with impending delays.

Band founder Tom Stevens commented: "I am extremely excited to have Chad contributing to what I feel is the most important song of my career. His drumming is solid and his professionalism in the studio delivers unto me a piece of work my engineer finds to be perfect for us to work with, it's effortless for me. Chad really brought my riffs to life. Nokturnel fans owe this man their gratitude, he is an important part of Nokturnel and I very well may not have accomplished all I have done in 2010/2011 without the jump start he gave Nokturnel. Horns up Chad! Thanks!!!!!!!!"
Stevens also wanted to add this message:
"I would like to express my personal condolences to a fallen hero of mine. The day after I recorded this track I woke up feeling victorious, as every ounce of my being went into this song. To discover someone in one of the most influential bands of my life had passed on only a few minutes later just crushed me. I'd like to dedicate this track to Scott Columbus, and while raising Hammer I say thanks for all the Great music Scott! You will be missed! Hails to a TRUE KING OF METAL!!!!!!!!"
Nokturnel is scheduled to appear at the Maryland Deathfest on Sunday, May 29th at 1:00pm.
