There is a new 70′s doom rock band in town. The band in question is Noctum and while their sound seems to come as second nature they do an amazing job in recapturing a magical era in rock music, but aren’t a copy of bands of the past but are excellent inspired songwriters.
It’s not all old-school hippie rock worship though, Noctum have large doses of the N.W.O.B.H.M in their sound, especially bands like Diamond Head and Witchfinder General. The 70′s angle that they project so wonderfully well comes in the form of the style originally created by Black Widow, Coven, early Pentagram and of course Black Sabbath.
Noctum was recently signed by Metal Blade Records and are busy recording their second full length album.
Orcus Chylde was born in autumn 2009. Started in a city of Aschaffenburg,
the German sextet stamps an exclamation point with their recently released
debut album and its multifaceted, intelligent melodic compositions. Within
their strong, epic, and dark music they combine hypnotic guitar riffs,
driving euphoric solos, and spherical, vintage Hammond organ sounds with
very distinct and melancholic vocals.
The entire sound is supplemented by a massive, punchy rhythm duo.Orcus Chylde are rooted in the psychedelic and progressive heavy rock and Krautrock of the 70ies.
