In ‘HOD, The Stellar Light’ Dr. Magus travels to the sphere of Hod where he learns the secrets of The Universe from The Masters of The Great Universal Mind and as he utters The Secret Words of Power and turns inward to become a God himself“, Mike Browning comments.   

The highly anticipated new NOCTURNUS AD album “Unicursal” is the follow-up to 2019’s acclaimed “Paradox”. With “Paradox”, Nocturnus founder/sci-fi death metal godfather Mike Browning would resurrect Nocturnus lore under its new alteration NOCTURNUS AD which gave Browning the opportunity to continue the mythos that came before with the legendary album “The Key”, almost 30 years after the release of one of the most influential death metal albums of all time.

“Unicursal” sees Browning, along with guitarists Belial Koblak and Demian Heftel, keyboardist Josh Holdren, and new bassist Kyle Sokol (bass on “Unicursal” was performed by now-ex bassist Daniel Tucker), continue the journey of Dr. Magus following the events of “The Key” and “Paradox” (documented in the album’s second half). A towering aeonic manifestation of extraordinary sci-fi otherworldly death metal forging itself through time and space.

Evidently “Unicursal” is not only one of the most ambitious undertakings Browning has been involved with, but it is a formidable display of progressive occult metal wizardry that manifests NOCTURNUS AD as one of the most singular forces in extreme metal today; there truly is no other entity akin and “Unicursal” is another monolith that honours and continues the traditionand lore laid down with “The Key” and continued with “Paradox”. With blistering guitar manifestations courtesy of Koblak and Heftel, Holdren’s grand and epic synth passages and Browning holding down the rhythm with his calculated battery along with his unique commanding chants, “Unicursal” is a towering aeonic manifestation, extraordinary sci-fi otherworldly death metal forging itself through time and space.

The album was produced/engineered/mastered by Jarrett Pritchard at New Constellation Audio in Orlando, Florida, and features artwork by Uwe Jarling with design by Chimere Noire
