Blackened Death Metal quartet NOCTAMBULIST, in collaboration with No Clean Singing, has premiered “Engulfed,” a track from forthcoming album The Barren Form. Stream it now at this location.
NOCTAMBULIST will release sophomore album The Barren Form July 2 on CD, vinyl, cassette, and digital formats via Willowtip Records. The album’s first single, “Depletion,” is streaming now on YouTube and Bandcamp.
NOCTAMBULIST issued the statement below regarding The Barren Form:
“The Barren Form is a relentless and unforgiving exhibition of misery and despair. The technicality and weight of the prior album, Atmospheres of Desolation, remain persistent on this subsequent release. But, through an elevated form of songwriting and introspective lyrical content, “The Barren Form” creates a more suffocating and bleak aura. Each track embodies a manifestation of depression, grief, anxiety, and fear – a fitting theme for present day. The intent of the album is to unsettle and consume the listener. “
“The musicianship on The Barren Form is top-notch, as is expected from a Willowtip Records release, but what is striking about Noctambulist is how much emotion they can inject into a suffocating, abstruse template.”– No Clean Singing
