    NOCTUARY, mentored by vocalist / guitarist Joseph Van Fossen, was born out of the early 90's extreme Metal band SUMMONED. NOCTUARY's 2000 album 'When Fires Breed Blood' included session lead guitar from EVIL DEAD, RISE and DEATH veteran Albert Gonzales, vocals from James Reyes and drums from Rob Alaniz, the latter being another erstwhile RISE and EVIL DEAD member. The mini album release on Largactyl Records is a CD pressing of NOCTUARY's 1996 demo 'Where All Agony Prevails'.

    Former NOCTUARY man Daren Winn would join RAVENS OVER GOMORRAH. In 2003 the NOCTUARY pairing of vocalist / guitarist Steve Nelson and drummer Rob Alaniz would found Doom outfit WINTERTHRALL in league with the DEFILE, DEAD AMERICA and PHOBIA credited bassist Ruben Logo and erstwhile MANSLAUGHTER guitarist Elizabeth Schall.

    NOCTUARY debuted a new, more melodic, direction in April of 2004 with the recording of demo tracks 'The Path' and 'Abject Fear Reside', cut at Shiva Studios with producer John Haddad.
