camjr01 Consistent, solid atmospheric black metal is strung out all over In Terra Profugus. A rather large portion of the Icelandic black metal scene is rather dissonant, and this is no exception- although the dissonance is far more mild than normal, and there seems to be a more pronounced Deathspell Omega influence than what is typical for bands in this vein. Regardless, this is a strong debut for Carpe Noctem- full of great songwriting and a healthy dose of variety- and they've only improved overtime. Favorite track: III. Odium Somniferum.

thebryceroy Choice DsO-core from not-France. They do the style justice, as this is a fabulously twisted journey which remains engaging and interesting throughout the runtime. More impressive still is being able to maintain that for 50 minutes of music AND make that time fly by.

Icelandic black metal act CARPE NOCTEM released a vinyl version of the debut album „In Terra Profugus” on August 5th via Hellthrasher Productions.

Originally released on CD in September 2013 through Code666 records, the album is now available on 12” LP in an edition of 300 black copies coming in a jacket sleeve with 8-page A5 booklet.

In Terra Profugus is a concept album about an ethereal journey within and without the self, exploring concepts of life, death and the nature of evil. It is about overcoming and reaching understanding through strife and hardship, about self-flagellation of the soul. The album title calls upon Cain’s journey into the wasteland of Nod, the self-made exile from God’s creation. Imagery from nature and light references to Nordic myth permeate the text, which is both vivid and esoteric in description.

Carpe Noctem was formed in November 2005 but its current formation came to be in 2009. By this time, it had 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. It forms a raw, chaotic and apocalyptic soundscape combined with Icelandic lyrics; often referencing scripture, Nordic mythology, occult writings, apocalyptic prophecies and Icelandic black magic rituals.
