Italian atmospheric doom band NOCTU unveil 32 min track at No Clean Singing

Noctu play some of the most haunting and harrowing music you’ll hear in the entire doom genre. No Clean Singing premiered their epic 32-min track “Isolato Da Un Mondo Senza Speranza” which literally translates to “Isolated From A World Without Hope” in English – eerily similar to the current situation many of us are facing because of the COVID-19 virus.

You can listen to the track AT THIS LINK. Excerpt –

“Settle in. Prepare to lose yourself, to be excavated from the inside out and left in terrible emptiness, with a thousand-yard stare, shivering with the affliction of ghosts.”

– “the only funeral doom worth mentioning that we’d get this year is whatever the hell it is that Bell Witch is currently whipping up, but, clearly, I was mistaken”

Head-Banger Reviews (US)

Noctu play haunting, atmospheric blackened doom metal that infects the soul, eviscerates it and leaves it hollow, bereft of the abundance of feelings that once invaded it. This is an unexpectedly sharp, incisive, singular and ultimately extremely effective form of expression, imbued with a deep, harrowing tone that has the power to incapacitate one’s thoughts and rendering the person helpless to its introspective melancholy. Never before has the music of this kind shown such clarity and purpose without degenerating into incontinent lapses of urgency. This is stoic, consistent and stately doom with magical convincing power; the impact is profound and lasting. This perhaps epitomizes the funeral doom sound but has added atmosphere and bleakness to keep it relegated to just that. A measured, patient listen is sure to move the listener and those with physical copies of this release will even catch a whiff of the fragrance of flowers showered upon tombs from it.
