2024 | Nox Aeterna Biography
Nox Aeterna is a five-headed melodic death metal band from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Formed in April 2002, Nox Aeterna has matured into an experienced band with an extensive repertoire and a solid sound. Inspired especially by Scandinavian metal, the band brings their own heavy and melodic sound for more then 20 years now. Nox Aeterna (Eternal Night in Latin) is formed by lead vocalist and guitar player Arnold Boukes, Debbie Maasdam on guitar, Erik de Beijer on bass guitar, Gerard Baai on keys and James Koppelaar on drums.


After releasing the albums Unleashed (2004), Immortality (2007) and Nightblood (2012), Nox Aeterna presented their first special concept-album The Desperation Deal (2015). The album is telling the tale of Einarr, dealing with the demonical Raanah who promises him immortality. In 2018, another concept-album is released: Aurora Borealis. This story takes you on an exciting journey through a cold and treacherous world towards the Northern Lights.

From 2019 to 2023 Nox Aeterna releases four singles from the upcoming album. This brand new concept-album is called Subject 17 and is released on September 29th 2023. In 12 songs it tells the tale of an ambitious young doctor during the rise of modern medicine, at the start of the 20th century.
