|A melodic metal band from Los Angeles, Eyes Of Noctum saw its genesis in 2005 when Arcane began to experiment as an underground artist. Three years later, Arcane (vocals) and former Noctum guitarist Asmodeus began recording material they co-wrote together, taking the first step from the shadows of the unknown.
In the summer of 2008, Eyes Of Noctum formed with the addition of Vardar (guitar), Templar (keyboards), Moloch (bassist), and Donner (drums). The band immediately began to produce their first complete album set to release in the spring. The album, produced in Sweden by Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Opeth) with contributions by renowned music producer Jack Douglas (Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, etc.), consists of a variety of elements and sounds that don't always relate to a particular genre.
After the summer tour and fall tour with Urgehal and Spearhead, the band parted ways with the bass player Shawn "Moloch" Smocke and keyboard player Ryan "Templar" Schroeder. As of right now, Eyes Of Noctum are preparing to record their second album, which was set to be released in the summer of 2010 but has unfortunately been pushed back to an indefinite date.
