"SLEEP" music video online - 19.04.2013
We want to celebrate the album release with a brand-new music video of Sleep. It is a lullaby for a deceased friend or close person. Acoustic passages, heavier parts and clean moments flow onwards with slow drum beat in a soothing manner. It is time to enter the theatre of life and death...
- The basic idea of the music video has been revolving in my head already for many years. To make a dreamlike, deliberate music video where we play in shades of red curtains well dressed, avoiding typical metal video manners. The background story supports Sleep's lyrics: people are born, they get older and eventually die, and for a major part they walk the road of life eyes closed trying to avoid this unavoidable fate, comments Ville Lamminaho, the writer of the song.

Handful of Dust video - 01.04.2013
Snare drum - what a perfect way to open the new album! You can enjoy Ilkka's snare fills in YouTube as the lyric video of Handful of Dust is now online.
Tuukka Tuomela, composer of the song, comments: "We needed an upbeat and catchy song for the album. Less than two months before the studio I promised bandmates to write such a track by the next rehearsals. The song came up quite easily. It's full of nice riffs and killer melodies, a good way to begin the album. Thematically it's an anthem for the band and our fans. Writer of the lyrics, bassist Hannu Savolainen described the song as Noumena's 'United', 'Heathen Tribes' and 'Wherever I May Roam'. Horns up for that!"

New album out in April - 24.02.2013
Here we go! After a long and anxious waiting, Noumena is ready to release the 4th album titled Death Walks With Me.
- Our new songs are heavier and gloomier than Noumena's previous albums, both musically and thematically. We have broken our old patterns and barriers. But, there are Noumena trademarks ranging from catchy and melancholic melodies to aggressive and tranquil moments, of course, says vocalist Antti Haapanen.
- Great metal needs lots of forging, and we took our time. One reason for such a long pause in releasing was difficulty to find a proper label for us, Haapanen continues.
The new album also introduces the new member of Noumena: Suvi Uura. She is a talented and many-sided musician, who brings a final touch to Noumena's sound and live action. Suvi's vocal delivery is wide and deep, from touching and tender singing to brutal growling.
Death Walks With Me will be released by Haunted Zoo Productions and distributed by Playground Music. Release date (CD and digital) is 18.4.2013 for Nordic and Baltic countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), rest of the world is TBA at the moment.
