Tipping their hats to past metal masters and contemporary riff slingers, NOCTURNE WULF have engineered a sound that calls upon the ferocious drive of Slayer, underpinned by the mastery of Iron Maiden and Metallica. NOCTURNE WULF release their self-titled new album, on Friday 19th July. Before then, the band have just dropped a new track, Necrodancer – https://youtu.be/KQeLV_—us in support of their forthcoming tour with SALT RIVER SHAKEDOWN.
Originally formed in 2016 and hailing from Glasgow, NOCTURNE WULF had a few early teething problems with personnel, but have now settled on an established line up featuring the aural talents of Bob McDougall (lead vocals), Jamie Paterson (rhythm guitar), Steve Scott (bass), Chris Horne (lead guitar) and Scott McLeod (drums). The Scottish metallers reached the final of M2TM in 2018, and since then have gone on to regularly tour throughout the whole of Scotland. On stage, the dynamic five piece have built up a formidable reputation for their engaging live shows which have seen them grow an army of dedicated followers.
NOCTURNE WULF have just crafted their self-titled debut album, which lands this July. The band remark about the album: “This record was a marriage of hard work and passion to create the best heavy metal album we could. The album’s key mantra was to be great and diverse, as well as heavy. The motivation was simple: Victory or Death”. With a forthcoming UK tour in place with fellow riff beasts SALT RIVER SHAKEDONocturnWN, 2019 is lining up to be a prominent year for the Brit metal crew.
