Cover artwork was created by Brazilian designer Marcelo Vasco. Buy this furious album via the band's website.
NOCTEM was formed in 2001 in Valencia, Spain (or as the band puts it: “cradled by the ideals of violence exaltation, misanthropy and antithesis to the totality of the absurd religions created this most excellent machine of war, which advances by leaps and bounds among the ranks of a putrid and poor social values infested civilization”). After a couple of demos and self-released live record, NOCTEM released their debut album, ‘Divinity’, in 2009, featuring orchestral arrangements by Christos Antoniou (SEPTICFLESH and CHAOS STAR) and guest appearance by Leal (ex-FOREVER SLAVE).
