noxaeterna_thedesperationdeal.pngNox Aeterna is a Dutch melodic death metal band who released their fourth album in March 2015. When I started to listen to this album, the drums adjusted my heartbeat, the bass moved the blood through my veins and the guitar took my muscles. The voice of lead singer Arnold Boukes took my brain and I got devoured by the songs on this album. It got me stuck listening to it and head banging my way through. It felt like time stopped and all that was there was the music and the story my brain formed while listening to it.

Nox Aeterna is Latin for Eternal night. And that is exactly what they did, make me feel like nobody was around and time stopped, stuck with their music controlling my body. I can’t think of more words to describe the zoned out feeling I had.
