Brazilian metallers Noturnall entered the studio to begin recording their new album for an early 2016 release, the successor to Back To Fuck You Up (2015). Still untitled, the new work has guitarist Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob, Stonic Stomp), Thiago Bianchi (vocals), Fernando Quesada (bass), Junior Carelli (keyboard), and drummer Aquiles Priester (Hangar, ex-Angra). Mike Orlando had previously played with Noturnall on the Axes & Anchors cruise and at Rock In Rio.

“3rd chapter of this journey of life, called Noturnall. Very curious to know what the Cosmos has in store for this new sphere of life Noturnall. I can only say for sure is that this is one of the most anticipated albums of my life!”, said vocalist Thiago Bianchi.
“It’s different to get a drive with another influence in the band (Mike Orlando). Again the music proves that it is the universal language, uniting different cultures for the same sound”, said bassist Fernando Quesada.
The second album from Noturnall, Back To Fuck You Up!, was released in early May 2015 and beat its own sales records at the largest specialist music store in Brazil, Die Hard Records. The work brought a modern sound compared to the first album, and bring more attitude to the band.
Back To Fuck You Up was recorded at VM&T Fusion Studios and included the production of Thiago Bianchi. The cover art already sets the tone and is again signed by renowned Carlos Fides, which also made other covers for the band. The cover shows the position of the band against the political and government, in addition to the current situation in Brazil. The image is so aggressive that it was banned in some media, which only reinforces your truth.
In 2016, the musicians have been preparing to released the new studio album, a new tour and DVD. With Mike Orlando as an official member of Noturnall, the band is proud to announce that it is now also an international group.
