Nocturnal Art Productions is now entering into full time collaboration with Candlelight Records on a worldwide basis. The two labels have already been cooperating for several years with Candlelight licensing various Nocturnal Art titles for the North American territory. This new collaboration sees a full on worldwide cooperation with all coming Nocturnal Art titles being marketed through the Candlelight Records network.
Candlelight label manager Edward Christie had the following comment about the collaboration:
“We are delighted to be working with Samoth [labelhead] and N.A.P. and look forward to building a successful partnership. It was a natural step for both companies as Candlelight look after the N.A.P. releases in the USA and of course we have been working together for a number of years with EMPEROR and ZYKLON.”
With this new collaboration, Nocturnal Art has already signed Norwegian extreme metal thrashers SHE SAID DESTROY… a name that has been on many people’s tongues recently. They have been an active live unit and have made many impressive live appearances. Vampire Magazine (Holland) quoted the band as, “One of the highlights at this years Inferno I would say!!!” on their appearance at the Inferno Festival 2005. Their latest demo, Armageddon Anyone?, has also made strong impressions on fans and media alike. Metal Hammer Germany declared it demo of the month, and Metal Hammer UK gave it 8 out of 10 points and quoted it as “This is heavy fucking metal, not Paris Fashion Week!” The band is currently in writing mode for their debut album and expects to be recording in the Fall.
