Resurrected from the ashes of one of the most influential death metal bands of all time, Nocturnus, NOCTURNUS AD was initiated by Nocturnus founder/mastermind/death metal legend Mike Browning (also Morbid Angel co-founder) to continue the path that was laid down – almost 29 years later – by the legendary Florida death metal band’s seminal 1990 album The Key, an album recognised as one of the most important death metal albums of all time!
On a musical plane, Paradox’s otherworldly, technical, dark, atmospheric, occult, death metal blueprint harnesses and carries on the energy of The Key – and the overall cult death metal vibe of the early ‘90s. Musically overwhelming and a sonic attack on the senses, Paradox is the sound of sci-fi death metal pioneers reclaiming their throne. With Browning (first time back on the Nocturnus vessel since 1992) commanding the craft through his precision drumming and distinct vocals, it’s left to guitarists Demian Heftel and Belial Koblack, bassist Daniel Tucker (ex-Obituary), and keyboardist Josh Holdren to round out the band.
