Already the first announcements of a forthcoming eleventh longplayer of Nocte Obducta ensure excited hustle on every imaginable scene platform, the Germans belong to a kind of pioneering scene movement and polarizes its supporters not least through its musical unpredictability and experimentation. With "Mogontiacum (Nachdem die Nach herabgesunken)" the long-awaited work is now available and should prick the ears of some "old" fans of the sextet also. It's not just that the band recently announced incorporate reinforced extreme metallic sound again, they even go as far as to call "Mogontiacum" a musical act of liberation after more than 10 years!
Conceptually, the album relies on material that was originally planned as successor of the highly successful "Nektar" phase, but sank in the turmoil of the band's subsequent history. On this album, Nocte Obducta combine the old trademarks, from which the band owes its special position, with the experimentation of last year and deliver an album that clearly stands out in the mass of unity productions with its analogue character. It will thrill both old and new fans!
