Biography

The Maldive Islands evoke images of an insular paradise before the eyes of a stranger. Like a double row of pearls hundreds of coral islands forming 26 atolls spread from north to south in the gentle breeze of the Indian Ocean. At first the hard sound of Metal seems a contradiction to picturesque white beaches, palm trees and blue sunny skies. Yet now NOTHNEGAL are embarking to teach the world otherwise with their international debut album.

After leaving their previous band MORTUARY, guitarists Hilarl and Fufu found NOTHNEGAL on the capital island Malé in 2006. At first they dedicate themselves to melodic Death Metal. The cousins are aiming for a high level of professionalism right from the start, which leads to several changes in the line-up before the recording of their first release “Antidote of Realism” (2009).

This self produced 4 track EP was mixed by Finnish producer Anssi Kippo, who is known for his work with CHILDREN OF BODOM and NORTHER among others. Even though “Antidote of Realism” gets released through the internet it gains the band immediate worldwide attention and positive reactions.

Their line-up is completed in April 2009, when American drummer Kevin Talley (DÅÅTH, ex-CHIMAIRA, ex-DYING FETUS, ex-MISERY INDEX) and Finnish keyboard player Marco Sneck (KALMAH, POISONBLACK) join NOTHNEGAL as official members. With their new crew and more experience the band sets out to record their album debut.
