Will Nokturnal Mortum's upcoming album be released this year or will it be delayed due to the Conflicts in Ukraine?

The band is still very active despite the conflict, but another issue is that Saturious (co-writer, keyboard- and traditional instrument-player) just left the band.

Awful news, is there any official statement?

Yes, on their Facebook page. Here's the statement:
Quote:
Saturious is no more the member of Nokturnal Mortum. It was a mutual decision, and we are friends still. On 13th of July in Kharkiv he will play his final concert with us. We shall continue walking our path without him and wish him all the best and express our gratitude for his contribution to legacy of Nokturnal Mortum!

And in the comments, Nokturnal Mortum said:
Quote:
Still there is a possibility that Saturious will help band as session studio member.

A lot of changes in the band lately but I'm eagerly looking forward to The Voice of Steel's follow-up.

Thanks!!

If he continues as a studio member it would be great. The Voice of Steel was a true masterpiece so I am very excited with the new album.

There's a new song in this video at the 6th minute.
Youtube: show


According to their FB, it's titled "Eight Days to Spring".

I have a feeling this may have something to do with the ideological shift they seem to be taking further with this next album, just look at Saturious' side project Finist for an example of how strong his nationalistic views where. True shame as he is an exceptional musician.

If that video Wilytank posted is anything to go by, I actually really dug the new song. It sounds a little more jig-y than Voice of Steel but I mean they played Ukraine after that new song and it sounded even more like giddy campfire music live than it does in the studio, so who knows. The predecessor to this album will be really hard to top, but I think these guys can pull it out of their ass. I can only imagine the current turmoil in their home nation will add fuel to the ideological fire.

As long as they don't jigify "My Dream Islands", I'm all for it.

I think it will be in this year. Nokturnal Mortum's from Kharkov, there all's alright.

People from USA interested about NM? I'm surprised :)

Really? As far I've been aware NM has a pretty respectable following around here; I know not everyone liked their "bouncy folk" phase (though I thought Weltenschaung was pretty good) but Lunar Poetry, Goat Horns and Voice of Steel in particular are all held in pretty high regard.

Hm, I'm double surprising :-D I didn't know about as much popularity this band, well then I pride for it.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my late mother's family are of Slavic origin.

I've never really cared for them at all, although I laud the their ambition I suppose...but yeah, they are huge around here too, for a semi-underground metal band at least. THeir music is just the sort of thing that appeals to both "serious" black metal fans and fun-loving folksters. I know several people in this city (which hardly has the biggest scene in NOrth America) with shirts, patches, etc, and my bassist totally worships the band.

IN a few years they'll probably be playing paganfest along with bands like Arkona (Rus) and Tyr...I think they're already "bigger" than both of them.

There has been some activities on their Facebook page today.

New logo!
Image

And a statement from Varggoth (I think): EDIT: Fuck, it's an eyesore to read...
Quote:
As well as a person who has many-sided world-view with its twists and turns, NOKTURNAL MORTUM – the band, which evolves in parallel with my own personal development – can’t stay the same. Many things change over time, because we learn and understand more deeply and comprehensively. Today it would be silly to stay the one who I was at my birth – life means learning, therefore we grow up and become wiser. Unlike many others, I don’t refuse my past – it’s a legacy which made me who I am now, and that is more than just important. Today I don’t share many views that I had in the past because of very different reasons – something was just husk, something disappointed me, something just does not matter. Nonetheless, I have been keeping music for myself as an instrument for self-development. The fact is that very kind of activity makes me leave behind well-known places and trails in search of myself. And this is what most important. Not number of CD sales, gigs, fame and other rubbish, but this. We have been walking a long way together and we have seen a lot with our music, we visited different places and we passed through different changes of our own personalities. Everything that I have said and done still lives in me because all this is what I am. I never lied and I am not going to lie further. If I claim something, this means that it is true at the present time; if I am not sure in something, I remain silent. For instance, when nowadays I am asked about my political views, I answer that I am out of this, and it’s true. I’ve seen a lot and I understand that this is not my side. As for religion, it’s not easy question neither, because it’s a very essence of man that should evolve over time. The person should not ossify and get stale, but always move forward to achieve the goal instead. All this has been reflected and will be reflected in my creative output. If it is interesting for you, you are free to walk with us towards this light together.
On account of what I said, a lot will be changed. Our logo, for example. It is no longer possible for NOKTURNAL MORTUM to exist under our old logo. With every new album we are born once again, and I am convinced that this is truly how the things are supposed to be. Every new album means new life and new view. Also I decided that on future re-editions of our works for every album we shall use the logo under which it was created. The same goes for artwork, layout etc. At least, we will work on this. Verity is in every one of you. Follow it!

With their shift of ideologies, it seems that songs from my favorite album, NeChrist, will be less and less in the set lists. I personally prefer that album and To the Gates of Blasphemous Fire more than anything else from them. However, their last album was monumental and I surely hope they make it over to the US. Varggoth did tell me once though in regards to them playing the USA: "maybe in the next life."

Perhaps this progression of Nokturnal Mortum is "the next life?" We can only hope!

Yeah, it's pretty surreal when they go 100% merry and folky! Reminded me of certain Windir songs, and that banjo solo in that Taake song.

NeChrist has really grown on me this year. Behind that chaotic symphonic black metal, there is some quality songwriting, and those folk sections are too catchy. My personal favourite is that folk finale on "In the Fire of Wooden Churches". Makes me want to dance!

My one tiny complaint with NeChrist is that the guitars are not very defined, as in I can't make out the riffs when it's full speed ahead. It all becomes a barrage of drums and keyboards. But damn Munruthel gave a fucking great drum performance on the album and it's also Varggoth's best vocal performance he's ever done. I don't care for his deeper voice now.

It's hard to pick a favorite but Call of Aryan Spirit is probably the most vicious song in their entire catalog. Death Damnation is another that's vastly under-appreciated. The title track and Jesus' Blood also offer interesting things. And of course The Funeral Wind Born In Oriana gave us that intro that they've been using for every album since. I guess now it's official that they'll never play any of these songs live.

The new logo is so folkie, I love it.

And about the statemment, its interesting and it shows, unlike some opinions, that NK may evolve to a less political band, which I think is good.

I hope there will be soon some news regarding the new album!

Fantastic logo. And thinking about the logo, it's lucky they chose such a neutral band name. Had they gone for something more satanic/antichristian more along the lines with some of their older lyrics, they might have been forced to change that too. Nokturnal Mortum suits a more folk-oriented band just as well.

Hmmm the new logo is interesting. A lot more nature based. There were sketches of other ideas for Nokturnal Mortum logos and a lot of them looked to shamanistic. This logo will probably go along great with more nature-oriented album covers (maybe ala Kogaion Art)...

The one thing that stands out more than the logo is Vraggoth's statement on not changing the old logo or layout/artwork for albums that might get re-released along with his acknowledgement of how he was in the past. I see a lot of NS people/bands try to bury that past under the bus when they grow out of it and never mention it.

In some ways, they are going back to older styles, such as wearing corpsepaint again. I've been on a Nokturnal Mortum binge lately and they are definitely in my top 5 bands at the moment.

That mic stand kicks some serious ass too.
