Noctium is a new band from the state of Washington, in the Pacific Northwest. The band is based out of Marysville, which is to the north of Seattle. They have been active as a band for over a year now and it is comprised of screamer Shawn Thompson (22), guitarist Phil Stockard (27), and brothers bassist Greg Blak (26) and Alan Ries (21) on drums, formerly of the Arlington band As Kingdoms Divide. Everett, Tacoma, Bellingham, Spokane and Seattle are the band's base of operations at the moment. Of course, they want to play more shows in the state of Washington and it's only a matter of time before more locations are added to the list, including in the neighboring state of Oregon.
They do not have much music published yet, but that will soon change with the debut EP that they are working on. At the second link below you can a hear one song called "Scum." The song appears to be groove/extreme metal, and we'll have to see what happens when more music comes in. Actually, this week the band has a show at the Backyard Festival at Louie G's in Fife on July 14th & 15th. The band will be co-headlining one of the stages Friday night with Massacre at the Opera, a band from Washington state.
