Iberian extreme metal outfit NOCTEM are streaming their new album "Haeresis" ahead of the official released this Friday, September 30th. The album will be available via Prosthetic Records in North America, UK and Europe, and through Art Gates Records in Spain.
"Haeresis" consists of ten brutally punishing tracks which conceptually delve into the dark history of NOCTEM's home country of Spain. Complimenting cover artwork, as seen below, was completed by Seth Siro Anton (Septicflesh, Moonspell, Behemoth) and depicts an epic and grotesque display of obscene torture extracted from the Spanish inquisition (1.500 A.C.).
NOCTEM self-recorded "Haeresis" earlier this year at Fireworks Studios (Valencia) before sending the album for mixing and mastering by Tore Stjerna (Watain, Valkyrja) at Sweden’s Necromorbus Studios. "It looks, sounds, smells and tastes different from anything we’ve ever done while keeping our original essence in every track", proclaimed the band, "We’re sure that any fan of Extreme Metal will be satisfied with this new opus."

- Through the Black Temples of Disaster
- The Submission Discipline
- Blind Devotion
- The Dark One
