NOCTEM released their Credo Certe Ne Cras full-length in October via MNRK Heavy. A true master opus merging the crushing cacophony of angry, adrenaline-fueled lust with newfound sorrows and mournful melodic might Credo Certe Ne Cras — meaning “I Believe With Certainty That There is No Tomorrow” — is a cerebral experience invoking ritualistic examination. In spirit, presentation, and philosophy, NOCTEM shares much in common with Watain, Rotting Christ, Belphegor, and Gorgoroth, while growing their own decaying branch of a wretched metal tree.
Credo Certe Ne Cras is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. Find order options at THIS LOCATION.
View NOCTEM’s previously released videos for “Credo Certe Ne Cras,” “We Are Omega,” and “I Am Alpha” at the band’s official Youtube page at THIS LOCATION.
Originating in Valencia, Spain, NOCTEM made their putrid presence felt with the rumble of 2002’s Unholy Blood demo. The God Among Slaves demo followed in 2007, building bloodthirsty anticipation for the band’s proper full-length debut, Divinity (2009), on Austria’s Noisehead Records. Metal Blade Records licensed Oblivion (2011) abroad, followed by a deal with Prosthetic Records, which issued Exilium (2014) and Haeresis (2016), a concept album centered on the Spanish Inquisition. (A special “rotten meat” scented LP edition of Haeresis sold all of its 666 copies in under a week.) The Black Consecration (2019) expanded NOCTEM’s themes of ancient civilizations and dark rites to encompass more of Beleth’s philosophy, previously outlined in his first book, 2017’s Codex Ante-Mortem, released the same year as the band’s homemade beer, A Cruce Salus.
With Credo Certe Ne Cras, NOCTEM takes a massive leap forward on their thorn-ridden path, armed with blackened faith and righteous fury, thirsty with unquenchable bloodlust, and prepared to conquer. They arise again without redemption, embracing the chaos of modern times and unafraid of fate…
“After an extended funereal doom intro, Valencia’s NOCTEM crack open the chalice with an insane barrage of chaos, a dense black blizzard of emotion and atmosphere.‘Credo Certe Ne Cras’ (which translates as ‘I believe with certainty that there is no tomorrow’) is a breathtaking ceremony that ranks with Gaerea among the year’s high ranking black metal releases…” – Gimme Metal Top Tracks Of The Week
“NOCTEM are raw, stripped-down European black metal fury on their latest record, Credo Certe Ne Cras, out now via MNRK Heavy. While the Spanish band have always been known for their raw and yet refined take on the genre, the new album finds them sounding even more polished without losing any of their edge.” – MetalSucks
“…a nonstop onslaught of fiery blasts and throat-shredding screams… Blast it at a red light and at your next BBQ! Only the true can hang, anyway.” – Metal Injection
“…six and a half minutes of pure black and death metal fury. It never lets up on the attack once; even the slightly slower, more melodic bridge is ferocious.” – BrooklynVegan on “I Am Alpha”
“It is an album that is vast and rich as well as being furious and intense and NOCTEM manages to mix these elements together in perfect unison and the results are breathtaking.” – The Razor’s Edge
“…a masterful offering done by a band who clearly have a deep understanding and vision behind their take on black metal. Letting yourself get lost in this abyss is a treat, and one that requires multiple listens to really grasp. Dig in.” – Two Guys Metal Reviews
Beleth – vocals
Varu – bass
Voor – drums
Moss – guitars
Tobal – guitars
