The self-released album comes packaged in a sturdy 6x6 black envelope with the cover artwork glued to the front, while the CD itself is housed in a slimline case with a double sided insert. Finally, the envelope is sealed with wax and hand numbered (100 copies) in metallic ink. Featuring all 12 songs from the digital version, the physical version has an exclusive bonus track titled, 'Tender Womb | Callous Tomb,' bringing the total play time to over 70 minutes. As a way of saying thanks to the fans after the positive feedback of the debut, Noctilucant released a digital compilation titled, ‘Dead Meat,’ which featured demos from ‘Back to the Mud,’ as well as, outtakes and abandoned tracks from the album sessions. In early 2016, the 28-minute single, ‘Buried Alive in Mud’ was released via Bandcamp.
‘Buried Alive in Mud’ served as a companion piece to the debut, as it featured all the songs from the debut stretched and twisted far past their original length, resulting in an apocalyptic beast of droning horror and unearthly atmospheres. More recently the 4-track EP, ‘Pain, Plague and Pestilence,’ which served as a teaster for forthcoming work, and the 30-minute single, ‘Neath The Cerulean Abyss,’ which was more nautical themed saw release via Bandcamp. ‘Oblivion to you all’ was released on July 18th, 2016. Oblivion has been in the works since ‘Back to the Mud’ was finished, but has constantly changed thematically, as well, songs have morphed and grown into something never even expected. Oblivion is over 70 minutes of post apocalyptic dark ambient music, with underlining industrial and experimental textures, and further develops the cinematic characteristics explored on previous releases. ‘Oblivion to you all’ sees the world now sparsely populated, this is after the apocalypse, when most humans have fallen, and those that remain standing are left to deal with a world that has changed into something, “else.” Relevant web links and further info/sounds: noctilucant.bandcamp.com soundcloud.com/noctilucant facebook.com/noctilucant Read more on Last.fm.
