Vocalist Thiago Bianchi comments:
“9” is about of the mysteries of the number Nine. If you take a good look at the album cover, you’ll learn that are 9 secrets on it. The cover shows the Planet 9 (the planet its supposed to be circling our solar system), passing near by earth, changing its climate, bringing an apocalypse to mankind, showing NOTURNALL’s mascot “JURARÁ” as its leader and she would bring the good word of REAL MEANING to the world. Inside the the actual CD booklet, you can also find the “Nine Commandments”, which talks about a post apocalypse world, where you’ll find the 9 guides of how to “restart” mankind. A way we could really evolve our race to its maximum potential as it should be.
“9” will be available on CD and digitally in North America on January 19, 2018 at the following link: http://bit.ly/NOTURNALL_9

Brazil is the largest Latin-American country in both population and area. Brazil spreads out over almost half the continent of South America and has more people than all the other South American countries combined. Brazil is the world’s fifth largest country, only Canada, Russia, China and the United States are larger.
This highly experienced group of dedicated musicians are about to release their new album entitled ‘9’ in North America on January 19th, 2018 via Rockshots Records to follow its European release on October 27, 2017. As befits a band who have walked in the footsteps of metal legends Iron Maiden, playing Rock in Rio, NOTRUNALL are much loved in their home country, and soon worldwide!
NOTURNALL’s unique singer Thiago Bianchi explains that the band grew from a previous band called Shaman (orginally founded by ex-Angra vocalist Andrè Matos), and that it stands for ‘No Turn At All’ as it was destiny that drove them to become NOTURNALL. Lyrically and musically they mine the deep wellspring of the mysterious universe we live in.
Thiago is stoked for fans to hear their new album, backed by a video clip for each track. “Each record has its own personality, its own vibe…we’re exploring and each time it’s getting deeper and deeper!”
