Following a recent visit to Australia, or the way things have panned out, we seem to be partial to the Australian bands but that’s hardly a surprise considering the immense talent found over there and very passionate and easygoing people to deal with. It started with The Dead and Norse, but along the way we’ve signed up bands like The Furor, The Slow Death, Illimitable Dolor, and now Somnium Nox.
Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi says, “I’ve been in touch with Somnium Nox members since a few years now and they’re among the most talented bunch of individuals I know. What’s more, they now have Robin Stone of Norse (another band signed to Transcending Obscurity) as their drummer. I’m certain the band’s new material will be outstanding in the realm of atmospheric black metal and it’s great to finally get a chance to work with Somnium Nox. They’re sheer professionals and sticklers for quality and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Expect the new album, their first, to be out some time in 2017.”
Somnium Nox member Nocturnal adds, “We are thrilled to announce that the next Somnium Nox album will be released through Transcending Obscurity in early 2017. Label owner Kunal Choksi has been investing a lot into Australian metal this year and we are very excited to be a part of this. More updates coming soon.”
