The Maldive Islands - a group of islands in the Indian Ocean – isn't a place most people would ever expect a metal band to come from, let alone one as stellar as Nothnegal. If you think that the white sands and palm trees of their home inspired their music in any way, you'd be gravely mistaken.

Nothnegal was founded by guitarists Hirlarl and Fufu on the capital island Malé in 2006 after leaving their previous band, Mortuary. Nothnegal's debut album, 'Decadence,' is a melodic death metal tour de force, with acrobatic guitar work and a jaw-dropping performance from session drummer Kevin Talley (Dååth, ex-Dying Fetus).

In this Noisecreep exclusive, we bring you the U.S. full album stream premiere of Nothnegal's 'Decadence' album.
