NOCTURNE startet as a vague idea in the mind of singer ESSARK back in 2006 when he composed first melodies to praise the nightside and its dark gods. After a long search for appropriate allies he finally joined forced with TENEBRIS (ex HELLSAW) in 2012.
In the following year they started together with producer Stefan Traunmüller (RAUHNACHT, GOLDEN DAWN) to arrange and record four songs for their demo 'Nahash' which was unleashed upon mankind in late 2013.
Without any further delay NOCTURNE entered Soundtempel Studio (Freilassing, GER) once again in 2014 where all strings and vocals for the upcoming album were recorded, drums have been nailed at KK-Studios (Salzburg, AUT), engineered by Krystian Koenig.
For NOCTURNE's self-titled debut album nine songs have been produced, featuring a crushing cover of DE INFERNALI's 'Sign Of The Dark' with original vocalist Dan Swanö (NIGHTINGALE, EDGE OF SANITY, PAN.THY.MONIUM, BLOODBATH, etc) on mic.
Debut album mixed by Stefan Traunmüller at Soundtempel Studio (Freilassing, GER) and mastered at NECROMORBUS Studio (Stockholm, SWE) by Tore Stjerna. All artwork was handled by promising young artist Ceethava (GER).
NOCTURNE managed to put together a strong live line up consisting of skilled musicians and is looking forward to spread the nocturnal disease live soon all over Europe.
