||German black metal band Nocte Obducta have announced their reunion and the release of their ninth album titled Verderbnis (Der Schnitter kratzt an jeder Tür), scheduled for release in November 2011 via MDD Records. It will be the band's first sign of life after their hiatus in 2006 and their swan song Sequenzen einer Wanderung, which was released two years after the band's alleged demise.
Says the band (translated from German):
"At the end of December last year, when we were spewing out the vocals in a sixsome and [keyboardist] Flange served Ouzo before 10 a.m. and the scent of anise was lingering in the air, one could feel so much of the old energy that it was obvious that this project couldn't just end with Verderbnis - we had more than enough material and of course new material was coming into existence continuously.
After disentangling oneselves with Sequenzen einer Wanderung and after the following years in which one got lost in time troubles and countless projects, one could finally sense a nonchalance which had long been lacking, although it might be comparable to the early days of [Nocte Obducta's follow-up band] Dinner Auf Uranos. This time, however, also the frustration was gone. Well, that distance and lack of constraints can work wonders is probably old news.
And thus it appeared natural to throw all the resentment overboard, unwrap the middle finger again and decide to continue under the old name, with the original concept of "let's see what happens." A core cast, reinforced by alternating members of all of the band's creative periods, and as idiosyncratic and unpredictable as 'back then'."
