BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS and HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS (distributed & marketed by REGAIN RECORDS) are proud to present NOCTAMBULIST's striking debut album, Atmospheres of Desolation, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.
Hailing from Denver, Colorado, NOCTAMBULIST formed in 2016 and so far have only teased with a single track on their own Bandcamp page. However, sinister things await and a full-length has been lurking for some time now... Indeed accurately titled, Atmospheres of Desolation is a devouring vortex of dissonant death metal with an almost levitational aspect. NOCTAMBULIST can churn & blast with the best of 'em, but it's their acute attention to atmospheric detail and eerily melodic coloring which set them apart from their peers. It's all too easy to get lost in the record's perpetual slipstream of angular aggression and heaving heaviness, at times stultifying in its dizzying displays of necromantic death; underneath those layers - or, one could say, also atop them - wriggle tendrils of tension and unease that almost effortlessly drag the listener along with e'm, making the entirety of Atmospheres of Desolation the epitome of an album experience.
Recommended for maniacs of Blood Incantation, Altarage, and especially godfathers Gorguts, dissonant death metal has spawned new mavericks in NOCTAMBULIST. Behold their Atmospheres of Desolation!

This album intrigued me when it first released and I've come to the point that this might be one of my favorite death metal album of all time. The first song sucks you in with the fairly conventional song length and structure. Then as the album progresses it really shows you its true potential. If you are thinking about buying this album get a physical release. Staring at the spiral before listening enhances everything. mar12

Working my way back after picking up Planetary Clairvoyance and this is an excellent LP as well. Crushing, brutal riffage and a tight composition that doesn't lose momentum throughout the ride. A concoction of old school, Finndeath, and American DM that is killer. One of the best DM albums I've heard. Whether or not you're a fan of their newest release, Manor Of Infinite Forms is a must. Buy it. camelhouse7
