EYES OF NOCTUM — the California-based black metallers fronted by Weston "Arcane" Coppola Cage (18-year-old son of actor Nicolas Cage) — have posted the song "Eyes Of Noctum" on their MySpace page.EYES OF NOCTUM's debut album, "Inceptum" (see cover below), is due later in the year through Morbid Rose Records. The CD was recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with acclaimed producer Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL). Norwegian drummer Hellhammer (MAYHEM, DIMMU BORGIR) and Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (THERION, DREAM EVIL, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MEMENTO MORI, NOTRE DAME) both make guest appearances on the CD. According to the band's official bio, EYES OF NOCTUM "saw its genesis in 2005 when Arcane began to experiment as an underground artist. Three years later, Arcane and former NOCTUM guitarist Asmodeus began recording material they co-wrote together, taking the first step from the shadows of the unknown. "Metaphorically speaking, EYES OF NOCTUM symbolizes both the stars and the universe, which philosophically translates as the guidance through darkness. The writing took years of development and experimentation to evolve into what it is today. "The founding member of EYES OF NOCTUM, in collaboration with Asmodeous, Arcane was previously in HELLS DISCIPLE, an instrumental solo project that began in 2004. After exploring literature, philosophy, mythology and theatre, HELLS DISCIPLE was put on hold. Years later, after a hiatus dedicated to poetry and creative writing, Arcane gravitated back into his musical passion, giving his 'words life with the spirit of sound.' While studying, he developed his own ideology, later coupling it with music and becoming a vocalist. Arcane enjoys espousing his ideology and telling stories in metaphoric tongue set to metal. His role as vocalist reveals Arcane's unique voice and broad vocal range."
