Today, Hells Headbangers announces the signing of Canadian black metal cult Nocturnal Departure. The first fruit of this union shall be the band’s highly anticipated third album, Clandestine Theurgy, slated for release later this year.
Nocturnal Departure were birthed from yellow moonlit darkness between Beltane and Lughnasadh of 2017 into a campaign of rejection and disgust for Christendom and the hypocritical norms of society. Nocturnal Departure redirect the psychomachia of the human condition through ritual and occultism, focusing it outwards as the moon gathers and reflects light from the sun, with raw and illuminating indifference. After releasing their debut album, Cathartic Black Rituals, and follow-up Worm Moon Sessions on cult underground imprints Death Kvlt Productions and Les Fleurs du Mal, founding members Funeror (guitar/vocals), Kryptys (drums), and Illartha (bass) are joined by new guitarist Necrogeist in grim occlusion with Hells Headbangers. Listeners should expect the most inexorable, pummeling Nocturnal Departure material to date with this incoming third album, hereby titled Clandestine Theurgy.
