Noctum (swe) announced as replacement for Taurus!

Today we are announcing the replacement for TAURUS; We took a look to the left to our neighbouring country Sweden and found a real treat for y´all! This hard rocking heavy metal band just signed to Metal Blade records and are now ready to conquer the metal underground. We are excited to present to you, NOCTUM! Noctum will take Taurus´ place and play 22.00 Friday May 2nd in Dødsmaskinen. Make sure not to miss them!

Check them out here:

NOCTUM (swe)
In the town of Uppsala, Sweden in the year 2009 a band called Séance was formed. Moving at breakneck speed the band formed in September, recorded a two-song demo after adding guitarist Per Wikström to the lineup in October, and by November had changed their name to NOCTUM. Within those three months, the band signed an LP deal with High-Roller Records, and a CD deal with Stormspell Records.
NOCTUM’s debut album, The Séance, was released in September 2010 via High-Roller and in December by Stormspell. The band finally embarked on their first European tour in July of 2011, and followed that up with a new EP, The Fiddler. By August of 2011, NOCTUM created enough buzz in the underground to gain the attention of Metal Blade Records, which led to a new worldwide record deal. With a new record deal in place with a global label, NOCTUM spent the majority of 2012 refining their sound and writing new songs. Their search for original and interesting material led them to a heavier and darker sound. The progression came very naturally for the band and differs from the typical 70′s vibe. The new material successfully evokes a heaviness and emotion one might not expect from a “retro” sounding band.

Noctum toured Europe again in 2012, and then welcomed the addition of drummer Fredrik Jansson after Gustaf’s departure. Jansson, who spent time in Witchcraft, Count Raven, and Abramis Brama, was added to the lineup in time to record Final Sacrifice in April 2013.

TAURUS cancels their performance at HDDT

We have some bad news today… We are sorry to announce that TAURUS (us) have had to to cancel their performance at Heavy Days as well as the rest of the planned Euro tour. Due to complications with Stevie Floyd’s pregnancy, it is unfortunately not possible for them to tour at this time.
They have sent some words below;
-TAURUS regretfully has to announce that we will not be able to play the Heavy Days In Doom Town festival, or any other of our upcoming European shows. We feel terrible about this decision and we were so excited about touring for our new record No/Thing which we have worked so hard on, but Stevie’s pregnancy is just too important and has caused a lot more pressure and attention than she expected. Stevie’s words…“I truly thought that I could make this happen and follow through with this tour but certain elements were just out of my control. My health and daughter have to come first. I hope that we can make this happen next year.”-

We wish Stevie and Taurus the best in the upcoming time and hope to see this through at next years Heavy Days!

We have already found a replacement for TAURUS that we will announce tomorrow, so look out for the announcement…
