Noctum Announces New Album "Final Sacrifice"

Noctum has confirmed an October 29th release date for the band's Metal Blade Records debut "Final Sacrifice."

Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed. The cover art was painted by Timo Ketola (Sunn o))), Arktau Eos) and can be found below.

In the town of Uppsala, Sweden in the year 2009 a band called Séance was formed. Moving at breakneck speed the band formed in September, recorded a two-song demo after adding guitarist Per Wikström to the lineup in October, and by November had changed names to Noctum. Within those three months, the band signed an LP deal with High-Roller Records, and a CD deal with Stormspell Records.

Noctum's debut album, "The Séance," was released in September 2010 via High-Roller and in December by Stormspell. The band finally embarked on a first European tour in July of 2011, and followed that up with a new EP, "The Fiddler."

By August of 2011, Noctum created enough buzz in the underground to gain the attention of Metal Blade Records, which led to a new worldwide record deal. With a new record deal in place with a global label, Noctum spent the majority of 2012 refining the band's sound and writing new songs.

Noctum toured Europe again in 2012, and then welcomed the addition of drummer Fredrik Jansson after Gustaf's departure. Jansson, who spent time in Witchcraft, Count Raven, and Abramis Brama, was added to the lineup in time to record "Final Sacrifice" in April 2013. The album's track listing is:

1. Conflagration
2. Liberty in Death
3. Resurrected in Evil
4. Deadly Connection
5. Void of Emptiness
6. The Revisit
7. A Burning Will
8. Temple of the Living Dead
9. Azoth
