Classic Rock Magazine called Noctaluca "the cream of some of the new talent emerging today in terms of songsmithery...There are echoes of Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and yes GNR". Following the cult successs of their 2006 debut "Towering the Sum", Noctaluca's latest studio release "Still the Wicked Rest" unabashedly embarks into the deeper and darker reaches of America's post-traumatic psyche, holding no punches along the way. From its provocative cover art to the politically spearheaded lyricism and an overall sound redolent of Vietnam-era rock, "Wicked" blows the dust from one of rock n' roll's greatest forgotten inventions: the protest song - and hot-wires it for its own retributive aims.

While many bands are masters of their domain in the studio and can create superior sounding records, often these same bands can fall short in the live arena. But Noctaluca consistently has outgunned their own ingenuity in the studio by putting on feverish live performances that at once can mimic the sonic enormity of their records with astounding accuracy while still tapping into a constant and thrashingly turbulent spirit of spontaneity that consistently earns them the unblinking and devoted wonderment of the audience, no matter how young or old.
