Nocturno Culto - Has New Project, Release In October

Gift Of Gods is the new beast from the mind of Ted Skjellum, otherwise known as Nocturno Culto and notorious as one half of the legendary Norwegian black metal band Darkthrone. For Gift Of Gods, Nocturno turns his hand to tracks of heavy metal, taking in a vast array of influences from decades past to concoct a "whirlwind of melodic riffing and headbanging anthems on this 30 minute heavy metal pilgrimage." He will release Receive on October 28th via Peaceville Records which also features a rendition of "Looking For An Answer" originally by obscure Swedish 80's band, Universe. The mini-album cover and tracklist can be found below. What do you think?

A labour of several years since its initial inception, Nocturno performs all instruments himself and has also been responsible for recording this mini-album at his own studio. Receive was mixed and mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door, having recently worked with Nocturno on Darkthrone's The Underground Resistance.

Receive tracklist:

01. Intro
02. Enlightning Strikes
03. Receive
04. Looking For An Answer [Universe cover]
05. Last Solstice
06. Outro

I'm wondering if he'll be using more traditional vocals. That'll be interesting.
