In the meantime, Mike Browning (Former Morbid Angel and Nocturnus drummer/vocalist) has issued a statement regarding what is being billed as a reunion of the "classic lineup" of Nocturnus, set to take place in Europe this fall. In a post to to the comments section of Blabbermouth, Browning writes, "I want to be totally up front and honest with everyone that the original lineup will not be touring. My band After Death will be doing the tour as Nocturnus, we WILL be playing at least 7 of the 10 songs on 'The Key" as well as a couple of old Morbid Angel songs done the way they were originally written on "Abominations of Desolation"! Mike Davis was asked and he didn't want to do the tour as he and I were the ones who wrote pretty much everything on 'The Key'. Lou [Louis Panzer, keyboards] and Sean [McNenney, guitar] were not asked to do this. What people will see will be a show that no one else can faithfully perform containing old Nocturnus and Morbid Angel material that I either wrote or co-wrote. And it will be done the way it was meant to be written and performed, not some contrived 'rock star' version! The tour will be from October 13-27, 13 shows only to be done in Europe because of these U.S. trademark restrictions from the former members who did indeed steal the name and band I created back in 1988."

Read carefully though. You won't see Nocturnus in se, just Mike Browning and his band After Death playing as Nocturnus (and Morbid Angel).

Just that you know...

Yeh, well when Possessed played Wacken last year only the singer was the original member. Hahah.
The main thing is hearing this stuff live - this is the closest we can get to a real Nocturnus really, I am happy with it!
