Light Of The Morning Star – Nocta CD
Light Of The Morning Star – 'Nocta' CD
2017 album from the UK doom bringers. Formed in the shadows of ancient graves cast by the light of the full moon, 'Nocta' is a nine-part canticle to the night, and all wraiths therein. Crawling fog on deconsecrated earth. The eerie glow of lanterns swinging in ghostly haze. Gnarled arms of oak against shifting clouds. Dark hallways and ornate, cursed wood. Smoldering incense interwoven with the fragrance of old death. Still the work of one mysterious O-A, the hydra-headed kaleidoscope of sounds characteristically encompasses trace elements of hypnotic deathrock, molten doom, and atmospheric black metal. Within this bewitching cauldron, its contents are stirred to such an extent that not only is easy categorization nigh impossible, but this panoply of paranormal sonics bespeaks only LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR.
