Noctambulist stands for contrasts. Serotonin summits and strung-out canyons. The empty and the grandiose. The beautiful and the appalling. Formed in 2015, Noctambulist are an atmospheric post-black metal outfit from Tilburg. Housemates J.D. Kaye, Sam C.A., and Mitchell Scheerder set out to create a hard-hitting, melancholic style of black metal that draws inspiration from other genres such as post-rock, shoegaze, new wave, and post-punk. After defining their sound and completing the line up with guitarists Tristan Tabbers and Stef Heesakkers, the band is ready to release their first full-length album Noctambulist I: Elegieën.
