Vrtextural death metallers Noctambulist stream the entirety of their striking debut album, Atmospheres of Desolation, at Decibel magazine’s website. Set for international release on January 21st via Blood Harvest Records and Helter Skelter Productions (distributed & marketed by Regain Records), hear Noctambulist‘s Atmospheres of Desolation in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Noctambulist formed in 2016 and so far have only teased with a single track on their own Bandcamp page. However, sinister things await and a full-length has been lurking for some time now… Indeed accurately titled, Atmospheres of Desolation is a devouring vortex of dissonant death metal with an almost levitational aspect. Noctambulist can churn & blast with the best of ’em, but it’s their acute attention to atmospheric detail and eerily melodic coloring which set them apart from their peers. It’s all too easy to get lost in the record’s perpetual slipstream of angular aggression and heaving heaviness, at times stultifying in its dizzying displays of necromantic death; underneath those layers – or, one could say, also atop them – wriggle tendrils of tension and unease that almost effortlessly drag the listener along with ’em, making the entirety of Atmospheres of Desolation the epitome of an album experience.
Recommended for maniacs of Blood Incantation, Immolation, Sulphur Aeon, and especially godfathers Gorguts, dissonant death metal has spawned new mavericks in Noctambulist. Behold their Atmospheres of Desolation! And behold them in their entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America’s only monthly metal magazine. Preorder info can be found HERE at Blood Harvest‘s Bandcamp, where the album can also be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
