Formed in Reykjavík during the month of November 2005 and featuring members of several Icelandic bands such as Misþyrming, Árstíðir lífsins and Naðra, CARPE NOCTEM quickly earned a reputation of intense performances on stage, while rising as one of Iceland's leading acts in black metal. The music shows various influences and expresses extreme opposites, forming a raw, chaotic and apocalyptic soundscape combined with Icelandic lyrics referencing Norse mythology, occult writings, apocalyptic prophecies and Icelandic black magic rituals.
CARPE NOCTEM has self-released a demo ("Myrkraverk", 2008), an EP ("Carpe Noctem", 2009) and its debut full-length album ("In Terra Profugus", 2013) via Code666 Records. Five years later the band now returns with the second album ”Vitrun”.
1. Söngurinn sem ómar á milli stjarnanna
3. Og hofið fylltist af reyk
4. Hér hvílir bölvun
5. Úr beinum og brjóski
6. Sá sem slítur vængi flugunnar hefur náð hugljómun
