Kevin Almroth This is quite an impressive debut. Right off the get-go here, we hear a lot of interesting, progressive guitar arrangements and different styles of vocals which feel very refreshing. This is definitely a band to keep your eyes on! Favorite track: Nocturnal Escape.

about

Nocturnal Escape was recorded between January 2014 and July 2015.

All music and lyrics written by Leo Bergmann.

"NOCTURNAL ESCAPE have created a very Death Metal-themed album here that is quite doom-y and gloom-y and talks a lot about, well, death. There is quiet a bit of groveling and growling in the vocals as well as moments that shows the brilliant melody of NOCTURNAL ESCAPE's vocalist. The song-writing is quite unbelievable as well, and gives the listener a lot to thing about through some pretty substantial lyrics that really have a lot of depth to it. There is also a large dose of reality that people can relate to as humanity slowly goes crazy even today in our world. NOCTURNAL ESCAPE wrote something that a lot of people can relate to, and understand." 10/10

www.metal-temple.com/site/catalogues/entry/reviews/unsigned_3/nocturnal-escape.htm

"This is a great opportunity for fans of progressive and aggressive music to witness the inception and rise of a talented metal act from Germany who are not afraid of experimenting and adding different layers of complexity to their compositions, creating a unique sounding that, as aforementioned, will beautifully reach to your heart and definitely make you bang your metal head."

theheadbangingmoose.wordpress.com/2015/09/28/album-review-nocturnal-escape-nocturnal-escape-2015/

"...this work shows eight themes entrenched in a sort of death / black progressive, modern metal, with good space for technique and virtuosity, as well as the bands aggressiveness and emphasis on some melodic and nearly gothic aspects."

rockarollazine.blogspot.com.ar/2015/11/nocturnal-escape-nocturnal-escape-2015.html

"... The whole album revolves around these weird combinations of styles and smashing diversity, always neat and sometimes bizarre, however to appreciate, because thanks to them the work is interesting and varied, played with a guitar technique that explodes in kaleidoscopic solos...Very good debut. Is this the birth of a new star in the metal cosmos? 80/100"

about

Nocturnal Escape Germany

Nocturnal Escape was created mainly as recording project by me, Leo Bergmann in 2014. After my band Bleak disbanded in 2013 I stopped making music for a while and started listening to many new artists. Inspired and interested in creating new music I started this project in 2014. My brother Klaus joined me on bass. Thomas Zimmermann added clean vocals in 2015. Both have played in Bleak. ... more

FEAR - THE DRIVING FORCE
HATRED - THE BONDING SENSATION

MASS MEDIA - THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE
EDUCATION - THE ENEMY OF ASINITY
CIVIL WAR - THE FIGHT OF THE OPPRESSED
SUICIDE ATTACKS - THE WAY OF THE DESPERATE

THE LEADERS THEY DRIVE YOU MAD
YOU GIVE THEM POWER WHICH THEY NEED
THEY CONTROL YOUR LIFE IF YOU ARE WEAK
ULTIMATE POWER IS WHAT THEY SEEK

CRYING CHILDREN SOBBING MOTHERS
EVIL ONES ARE ALWAYS THE OTHERS
TUMBLING BUILDINGS TREMBLING STREETS
SCORCHING CITIES IT ALWAYS REPEATS

HE STARTED TO FIGHT IT’S ALL HIS FAULT
HIS GOD IS WEAKER APPROVES OUR ASSAULT
GET OFF MY LAWN INFRINGE MY BELIEFS
FULL RETALIATION IS WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE

TOTAL WAR IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN
LIMITED BELIEFS ON WHICH MOST DEPEND
OBSERVING THE SLAUGHTER QUESTIONS MAN’S SANITY
LET’S KILL THEM ALL THERE’S NO TIME TO REPENT

EXTINIGUISH EVERYONE WHO’S NOT ALIKE
HURRY NOW TO GET THE FIRST STRIKE
THE KILLING GOES ON THAT’S HOW IT’S ALWAYS BEEN
THE FIGHT IS RAGING IT’S OURS TO WIN

PROPAGANDA - THE PRACTICE TO HERD THE SHEEP
DECEIVING SECURITY - THE TRICK TO GET SOME SLEEP
SURGICAL STRIKES - THE WORD FOR BLOOD AND THUNDER
INDOCTRINATION - THE WAY TO KEEP US UNDER

FLYING FORTRESS - THE EUPHEMISM OF THE BRASS
VOLUNTARY MARTYRS - THE INSTRUMENTS OF VENGEANCE
REFUGEES - THE ONES WITH NO GUILT

POLITICS ARE AN INIFINITE LOOP
INFERIOR MOTIVES DRIVE MOST GROUPS
DIFFERENT BELIEFS ARE AN EXCUSE
IN THIS GAME WHERE EVERYONE WILL LOOSE

WAR OF BELIEFS
WAR OF BELIEFS
Track Name: Age Of Atrocity
SCREAMING INTO OPEN SPACE
EVERYBODY’S SCHEMING JUST TO WIN THE RACE
PEOPLE LOOSE THEIR FEELINGS FOR EVERYTHING AROUND
HATRED AND DISGUST PULLS ME RIGHT DOWN

LIVING ON THE EDGE OF SOCIETY
THIS MARKS MYSELF AS THE PERFECT ENEMY
THEY ARE DRIFTING COMPLETELY AIMLESSLY
WHEREAS MY PURPOSE IS TO BE FREE

STAND UP AND KEEP YOURSELF AFLOAT
THIS HAS NO MEANING AS LONG AS YOU ARE PROUD
SHARPEN YOUR SENSES BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
FIGHT FOR YOURSELF TO ESCAPE THIS WORLD’S FATE

DON’T FOLLOW LEADERS FOR WHOM YOU ARE LIFESTOCK
PULL OUT NOW TO PREVENT THE SHELLSHOCK
CLUELESSNESS IS BLISS OF THE MINDLESS HERD
SET YOURSELF ASIDE AND FEAST ON YOUR HATE

THRASHING ALL THE BOUNDARIES WHICH THEY KEEP AROUND
MINDING JUST OURSELVES IS WHAT KEEPS US DOWN
IF THEY ALL COULD WAKE UP FROM THEIR PARALYZING SLEEP
WE COULD COME TOGETHER AND LIVE IN HARMONY

WAR IS JUST A BUSINESS WHICH PAYS THEM ALL SO WELL
SO LET US KEEP ON KILLING TO FULFILL THEIR WILL
WE ARE TOLD THERE IS NO CHOICE FOR REAL DEMOCRACY
BUT LET ME TELL YOU THE HUMAN RACE NEEDS TO BE FREE
THEY DEMAND OUR SOULS WHICH WE GIVE THEM WITH NO DOUBT
IF WE KEEP ON WAITING WE MIGHT SEE A MUSHROOM CLOUD

IT IS YOUR PURPOSE TO DISSECT THEIR LIES
COME TO A CONCLUSION WHICH ENDS IN A SIGH
HUMANITY IS DOOMED IF THIS ALL KEEPS GOING ON
WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND BE STRONG
IF ANYTHING WORSE THAN THIS IS HAPPENING
IT’S OUR DUTY TO RISE AND PLAY THE GAME
GOVERNMENTS ARE PULLING STRONG AND THRIVING ON OUR FEAR
DISAPPROVE THEIR TERRORISM THAT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR
Track Name: A Lucid Mind
FLY
OVER THE MOUNTAINS
BLACK SKY
SURROUNDS ME NOW

DOWN I SEE
ALL THIS MISERY
HELPLESS I AM
UP HERE IN TRANCE

WHAT’S GOING ON
EVERYTHING’S STRANGE
CAN THIS BE HAPPENING
OR AM I INSANE

LUCID I FLOAT
MY MIND BREAKS DOWN
IN HORROR I SEE
OUR FINAL DESTINY

SPINNING THOUGHTS
ALL AROUND
THIS IS TOO BIZARRE
SOMEONE PLEASE
TAKE MY HAND
AND GET ME OUT OF HERE

TICK TICK TICK TICK
TICK TICK TICK TICK
TICK TICK TICK TICK
TICK TICK TICK TICK

WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP NOW
WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP NOW
WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP NOW
WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP NOW

MURDER RAPE
GENOCIDE HATE
DEBAUCHERY AND CRIME
EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME

THIS IS A NIGHTMARE
IT CAN’T BE REAL
HUMANITY IS DYING
WHILE EVIL PREVAILS

NOW MOVE YOUR FEET
AND CATCH YOUR THOUGHTS
IT’S TIME TO TURN
THIS WORLD AROUND

I AM THE GOD
OF APOSTASY
OUR WORLD IS DYING
TO SET ME FREE
Track Name: Disillusion Strikes
SILENCE
BUT I WANT TO SCREAM
LACERATED WOUNDS
REMEMBER OF WHAT HAS BEEN

WHEN I WAS YOUNG
MINERVA LOOKED AFTER ME
NOTHING COULD DO HARM
I NEVER FELT AS FREE

GETTING OLDER DAY AFTER DAY
THE WALLS BEGIN TO CRACK
REALITY WAS CLOSING IN
MARS WAS GETTING READY TO ATTACK

THIS IS INSANITY
WAS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE
APOLLO LAUGHS AT ME
DISILLUSION ENCASES ME

THESE INSIGNIFICANT THOUGHTS
ARE DISTURBING AND CORRUPT
THANATOS I BEG OF YOU
PLEASE COME AND RELEASE ME

ALL THE TIME MY HEAD IS SPINNING
WHILE THE FACE OF DEATH IS GRINNING
FOR SO MANY YEARS I GOT AWAY
THE FEAR OF YOU LEADS ASTRAY

CALL ME WEAK AND PUNCH ME DOWN
I’LL STAND UP WITH A FROWN
THIS LIFE OF MINE IS NOTHING BUT INGLORIOUS
IN THE END YOU’LL BE VICTORIOUS
Track Name: Nocturnal Escape
CLOUDY NIGHT ON THIS EVENING
OPEN SPACE ALL AROUND ME
OUT IN THE FIELDS THAT’S THE PLACE TO BE
TO GET AWAY FROM WORLD’S INSANITY

MY VIEW REACHES FAR
A WIND GOT UP I CAN SMELL FRESH AIR
WITH NOBODY AROUND IT’S EASY TO UNWIND
AS I AWAIT SOOTHING CLARITY

SHADOWS CAST BY THE MOONLIGHT
FULL SECLUSION THAT’S THE GOAL TONIGHT
THIS EMPTINESS IT’S WHAT I SEEK
IT’S BEAUTIFULLY QUIET WHEN NO ONE SPEAKS

BREAKING TWIGS UNDER MY FEET
AS I MOVE FORWARD TOWARDS AN OLD TREE
THE BODY WANTS TO REST BUT THE MIND MOVES ON
SYNAPSES ARE FIRING AS I CALM DOWN

GLOOMY NIGHT AS I GAIN INSIGHT
DEPRESSION COVERS ME LIKE WARM DRAPERY
OVERWHELMING THOUGHTS BRING ME TO MY KNEES
IT’S THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO BREAK FREE

I NEED THAT PAIN
RIGHT INSIDE MY CHEST
IT IS
WHAT KEEPS ME AT MY BEST

AGONIZING SUFFERING
IS WHAT I CAME FOR
A RESTLESS SOUL
WHICH FEASTS ON MISERY

SILENT SCREAMS
HALLOW THROUGH THE NIGHT
A TORTURED HEART
PUTS UP A HOPELESS FIGHT
THE PANIC STRIKES
WITHOUT A WARNING
A QUIET DEATH
WITH NO ONE MOURNING

SWEAT POURS DOWN FROM MY HEAD
AM I DREAMING OR AM I DEAD
MY LIMBS SO NUMB MY BODY SO COLD
ALL ALONE IN NATURE’S VAULT

THE PAIN FEELS GOOD THE PAIN FEELS RIGHT
THIS CLEANSING TORTURE DRIVES ME THROUGH THE NIGHT
I FOLLOW THIS PATH AND COME TO ME
WITH THIS AQUIRED TASTE IN HUMAN TRAGEDY

MOVE
GET UP AND RUN PURIFICATION IS COMPLETE
THE VOICES IN MY HEAD WERE QUIET FOR SO LONG
ALL PAIN IS FORGOTTEN AS I AM HEADING HOME

THE SUN BEGINS TO RISE AND THE MOON’S GONE
I FOUGHT MY DEMONS AND I HAVE WON
THE VICTORY IS MINE THE HAUNTING THOUGHTS MOVED ON
THE QUESTION IS FOR HOW LONG
Track Name: Screaming Heart
ALL ALONE
YOU ARE LONG GONE
I GAVE YOU MY HEART
AND YOU GAVE ME MISERY

SHATTERED MY DREAMS
YOU WERE OH SO KEEN
ON MY LURKING DECLINE

HERE YOU GO
STAB RIGHT INTO MY CHEST
I OPENED UP FOR YOU

IT’S ALL MY FAULT
I GAVE YOU TRUST
NOW GO AND PULL IT THROUGH

OH MY HEART
SCREAMING SO LOUD
IT IS PLEADING
FOR YOUR MERCY NO DOUBT
Track Name: Gaia's Demise
FADING AWAY
FOR EVERY DAY
JUST TO GO HOME
INTO A FESTERING DOME

LOSING YOUR LIFE
JUST TO SURVIVE
IN THIS
FUCKED UP WORLD

FIGHTING THE DEMONS
OF DAILY GRIND
ALL SEEMS HOPELESS
IT WASTES MY MIND

MOVING FORWARD
TO STAND IN PLACE
ALL THESE PEOPLE
CAN’T LOOK IN MY FACE

IT STRIKES ME HARD
THIS UNEXPECTED THOUGHT
MY BRAIN IS SCREAMING
IT ALL SEEMS TO BE LOST

GAIA IS DYING
AND WE CAN’T STOP
TO EVISCERATE
OUR OWN LIFELIHOOD

AS PROFITS INCREASE
MAN’S SANITY GOES DOWN
HUMANITY IS POLISHING
IT’S DECEIVING CROWN

IT’S ALL SO CLEAR
WHY CAN’T THE SEE
THE IMPENDING DOOM
WE’RE ALL LOST IN APATHY
Track Name: Call To Humanity
ALRIGHT
LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT
MY LIFE IS DIFFERENT
IT’S MY OWN FATE
I BELIEVE
IN FREE DEVELOPMENT
OUR SOCIETY
IS JUST DECADENT

UNBIASED EXPOSURE
ISN’T JUST A TREND
DIVERSE BELIEFS
ARE PART OF HUMAN BLEND

COME TOGETHER
TO TALK ABOUT YOUR FEARS
DIVERSITY IS ALL AROUND
LET THE SPIRIT BE UNBOUND

STAND UP
THIS CYCLE HAS TO END
OUR FUTURE
SHOULD BE RELEVANT
FEEL YOUR POWER
AND USE IT TO PREVENT
THESE FUTILE KILLINGS
WE’RE CLOSE TO OUR END

QUESTION AUTHORITY
AND USE YOUR OWN MIND
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
AND LET THE SPIRIT FLY

THE FREEDOME OF SPEECH
AND FREEDOM OF OUR THOUGHT
ARE THE GREATEST GOODS
PROTECT THEM AS YOU SHOULD

STEP ASIDE
TO GET A BETTER VIEW
WE’RE ALL BUT BROTHERS
THIS IS NOTHING NEW

LET US JOIN IN PEACE
EMPOWER LIBERTY
FOR OUR CHILDREN
TO GROW UP FUCKING FREE
