This black metal band was founded in Valencia, Spain in 2001. Sonetchka was on bass. The 2002 demo was called Unholy Blood. The 2004 demo Live 2004 was filled with cover versions. 2007 brought God Among Slaves.

Noctem signed a deal with NoiseHead Records of Austria in the summer of 2008. The band was writing all the material for its debut album, which was to feature ten new songs. Noctem was to enter in the NoiseHead Studios on January 30th, 2009. The band issued its Divinity album in spring of 2009. The band was touring Spain. Incantation and Hate announced a tour of Western Europe for January of 2010. Divine Eve and Noctem would support the bands. Italy’s Noctem signed with Rising Records in 2011 for the release of its new album. Mark Daghorn, owner of the label had worked as producer for bands like Cradle Of Filth or Porcupine Tree. The band also adopted a new image. Noctem’s new album was entitled Oblivion and out through Rising Records in mid-2011. The second part of the trilogy that started with the Divinity album was going to be “the hardest, fastest and darkest opus from the band until the date.” The act signed with Prosthetic Records in the summer of 2014 for the release of its Exilium album. The album was expected immediately in Canada, USA and Australia. The band hit China in the spring of 2015. Noctem announced a new European tour with Nagaroth for March of 2016.
