Kharkiv, Ukraine (1994 – present)

Nokturnal Mortum is a black/folk metal band from Kharkiv, Ukraine formed in 1994.

They started as a band named Suppuration in 1992, then turned to black metal and changed their name to Crystaline Darkness but had to change the name back in 1993/94 to Nocturnal Mortum because there already existed a band with that name in western underground. Then the band changed the letter so that we wouldn’t find a band with the same name again like it was the case with Crystaline Darkness.

Nokturnal Mortum gained their first Western recognition with the release of their album Goat Horns, their second full length album, notable for having two keyboardists play on the album, often on the same song, and for mixing traditional Ukrainian music with black metal. As traditional instrumentation gained in significance and the lyrical concept moved away from black metal’s patterns, the newer releases are classified as .

    Время нового переосмысления альбома "Голос Сталі". Этого шедевра. Песен "Україна", "Шляхом Сонця", "Голос сталі". Переосмысления для таких людей как я, для которых лирика не несла особо большого смысла, а язык был довольно чужд.

    "Eternal Circle" sounds like it's from Heroes of Might & Magic 2 or 3 music. Love it!

    @dark_wisdom: how exactly this posting makes it obvious? Read comments: "We never were NS. NS means politics, and we never were engaged in politics. What was in us – stays with us (maybe, in less radical way, but it does)". I guess someone who has been a racist and ideological elitist all his life won't suddenly leave it all behind. Besides "politics" there is a variety of things related to NS, and I can see only distancing from "social" stuff. NM oficially supports NS forces in Ukraine with a charity gig btw.

  • dark_wisdom It is obvious varggoth decided to renounce his nazi ideologies, even though, I wonder which other changes came with his "rebirth" considering his intentions in re-designing the nokturnal mortum logo. I won't be surprised if this guy became a born again Christian.

    Mr. Gapon probably knows very well that so-called "Nazis" in Ukraine have deep connections with Jewish politicians home and abroad. Naturally, he wants to distance from these people...

    I'm hoping Mr Gapon still has some anti Christian ideals left in him

    At least you don't need to whine everywhere about how DISTURBING the views of the band are. Seriously, these numerous excuses 'their ideololgy is so baaad but hurr durr i like this band' are pathetic. [2]
