Band information

Secratain was a black metal band from Wollongong, the earliest of a raft of similar acts featuring a core of members from that city. Originally known as Ad Noctum the band name was changed when it was found to clash with that of a Melbourne thrash band. Shortly afterwards five tracks appeared on a split release with Sydney band Dark Dominion. After appearing at Bloodlust in 2002 Secratain slipped from view. Argaroth and Maddroc later joined Nazxul; Maddroc (as either Maddroc or Balam) is or has also been a member of a string of other bands including Pestilential Shadows, Baal Gadrial and Kinstrife and Blood.
