Formed in Oslo (Norway) in 1996 by members of Dimmu Borgir and Gehenna, NOCTURNAL BREED has continued to produce old school thrash metal albums ever since and have toured with bands such as Emperor, Aura Noir, Bal-Sagoth and Aeternus. Their live shows featuring stripper dancers are local favorites. They have played Norway’s prestigious Inferno Festival and have occasionally had guest appearances by artists such as Nocturno Culto of Darkthrone and Silenoz of Dimmu Borgir. NOCTURNAL BREED’s releases are well revered among thrash metal enthusiasts world-wide and consistently sell out of stock. "Napalm Nights" is the latest piece of discography released by the band in 2014, after seven years of silence.
"These Oslo hellraisers have hauled out the big guns and upped the ante with a manic mass of snarling black thrash and grimy rock'n'roll" (Pitchfork).
