Nothing can be gained by listening to this clusterfuck of barking guitars, cheap keys, and assembly-line produced atmosphere as inert as stone Dragon Balls. It’s heavy as fuck, the dark and pulsing atmosphere is prevelant throughout, the lyrics are interesting and catchy, and the songwriting suggests that the band really put a lot of time into this. Limbonic Art’s career contained two break-ups and a substantial deviation stylistically from beginning to present. For the most potent individual riff, skip to about 1: This would normally just come off as window-dressing but the band injects some very subtle melodic hints of this theme during some of the tracks. Daemon and Morfeus initially played a fairly pedestrian blend of symphonic black metal featuring an over-saturation of keyboards and overcooked pomp.

The vocals deserve special mention. There are also Middle-Eastern overtones, for some reason. Daemon’s vocals are at their best here, too. I love the effect of the drum machine because it gives the song a more mechanical, industrial feel. This is one of those albums where the the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, because the end product sounds truly amazing. Despite only using a drum machine, these guys really knew how to program it well.

OzzyApuMay 14th, The tracks on Ad Noctum are amazing and there aren’t any limbonic art ad noctum here. I think of small meteorites pounding the hell out of random moons and planets in the darkest corners of space.

The term “symphonic black metal” is usually used to describe very epic pieces, taking a lot of time to build up and develop song structures, and Limbonic Art’s previous albums are no exceptions. The interesting thing about his vocals is that, no matter how fast the music gets, they almost always stay rather slow and stately, with long vowels.


It combines the epic, symphonic. Gone are the days of their lengthy keyboard parts; except for one track on the album, there is no build-up here. Particularly during “The Supreme Sacrifice”, which features a limbonic art ad noctum, death metal approach that embodies primal rage as Daemon delivers esoteric lyrics like “Thought are tyrants that always return to rape and torment the heart”.

Ad Noctum – Dynasty of Death

The vocals come in faintly and random guitar notes are played, but the atmosphere is so dark, yet chaotic; almost like the process of a new star being born. In any case, don’t expect the melodies on here to be clear and in the centre of the songs, but be prepared for a lot of noise on different layers.

The percussions really make the music feel agressive and out of this world. Whatever he sounds limbonic art ad noctum, it’s damn appropriate for this album. Limbonic Art’s career contained two break-ups and a substantial deviation stylistically from beginning to present. Anything that results in a better outcome than the pathetic backing role Limbonic Art provided here would work. They have a more faint sound in the background and are usually most audible within the slowdowns and quieter parts within songs.

The sound is BIG. The song can be viewed as two separate pieces joined by an atmospheric bridge that gives the listener a much-needed break to gather his wits and prepare for the opening of the gates. Limbonic art ad noctum the keyboards had always been the dominant element on their first three albums, there is now some kind of an equal balance between keyboards and guitars.

Although the guitars tend to be given a little preference, often giving the main melody while the keys just play along to make the music more “complete”, neither of the two ever drowns the other; usually it’s the combination of both that carries the musical themes and creates the symphonic, atmospheric, full sound.

Limbonic Art – Ad Noctum – Dynasty of Death – Nordic Metal

All the song’s elements are thrown at you at once, leaving you helplessly lost in all that musical mayhem, so unless you’re familiar with this type of music, it might take several listens to get into the album. The anger that boils after such a discovery is only matched by the freedom one feels from never having to subject themself to this trash ever again.

Want factory-direct, purposeless black metal? Whenever I hear this album, I picture large asteroids and comets in space crashing violently into each other. I would also like to point out how dark and hypnotic these tracks are.

To summarise my review in one sentence, Morfeus and Daemon have produced an excellent album with a great nlctum atmosphere, merging all the different elements together to form a very interesting and complex mixture of sounds. This is initially most apparent on the album artwork, as the back cover features the Egyptian god of the dead, Anubis. Some songs feature a second synth intro, but after that at the latest all hell breaks loose with full force.
