It wasn't long ago that Notturno introduced themselves to the world with their grief-striken debut album Obsessions, a worthy debut album from the Italian depressive black metal project headed by Vittorio Sabelli (Dawn of a Dark Age, Incantvm, A.M.E.N). Almost immediately after the release of Obsessions, Notturno began work on their follow-up effort "Inside" which will be released through Hypnotic Dirge Records this fall.

The rich textures and nocturnal mood of the debut remains but on "Inside" the sound is developed further with some elements that weren't present previously, crafting an enveloping soundtrack to despair through the use of buzzsaw guitars, haunting piano, and even orchestral instruments that blend seamlessly and float in and out as required creating droning introspection and emotional crescendos in equal measure. As with on Obsessions, this structure serves as the base for the exasperated and desperate vocals of Kjiel (Eyelessight), this time around being joined by a guest vocalist Davide Straccione [Shores of Null]

Inside will be released on Hypnotic Dirge Records as the autumn ushers in the sweet respite from the oppressive summer heat, coming October 6, 2023. A limited LP - 100 copies in a dark green "Aokigahara" variant and 100 copies in a grey "Cold Ash" variant - will ship at the end of the year.

"Notturno is a depressive black metal band with a sense of adventure, following the flavor of the emotional journey rather than genre script. Their willingness to so heavily involve non-black metal material allows the metal to feel punchier and more impactful. Inside is one of the most dynamic black metal records I’ve heard in years."
