Nocturnal Graves uses thrash as a template for their ferocious work. Then they borrow from black and death metal, and melt your earholes with it. Australia's underground is better for having this band in it.
Favorite track: Ascension Through Lucifers Might.
Nocturnal Graves' comeback second album is a solid slab of Aussie blackened thrash straight from the Melbourne scene which made that style its own. Essential for fans of Destroyer 666, Gospel of the Horns, Razor of Occam, Denouncement Pyre, Trench Hell et al.
After a three-year hiatus, NOCTURNAL GRAVES return from a morbid slumber with ...From the Bloodline of Cain. Before they broke up in 2010, NOCTURNAL GRAVES were at the forefront of a fertile Australian underground metal scene that ably mainlined the best elements of black, death, and thrash. With ...From the Bloodline of Cain, the Oz commando show that their first run was no fluke, and are back with a bloody vengeance. In many ways, NOCTURNAL GRAVES' present can be best described as the perfect synthesis of ancient South American and German styles - fierce and fiery, incensed and enraged, and eternally thrusting with violence & force - but with a immediately ingraining songwriting acumen that's second to none. These songs will get in your head, and FAST, and compel you to destroy everything/anything within striking range: this is ...From the Bloodline of Cain!
