The Key is the first full-length studio album from Florida progressive death metal band Nocturnus. It was released on Earache Records in October 1990. A concept album, The Key is centered on an occult (the influence of drummer/vocalist Mike Browning) meets sci-fi (influenced by guitarist Mike Davis) theme. The story follows a cyborg who travels back in time to the year 0 .

Nocturnus was an American progressive death metal band formed in Tampa, Florida in 1987 by drummer/vocalist Mike Browning (formerly of Morbid Angel). They were known for their science-fiction themed lyrics and use of keyboards, both of which were virtually unknown in extreme metal at the time. Nocturnus was formed in 1987 by drummer/vocalist Mike Browning following the breakup of his old band Incubus.

Demo, 1987, Self-Produced.

The album, Nocturnus's debut, is a concept album centered on an Occult (the influence of drummer/vocalist Mike Browning) meets sci-fi (influenced by guitarist Mike Davis) theme. The story of the album follows a cyborg who goes back in time to the year 0 . which eventually leads to the destruction of Christianity (highlighted by the controversial track "Destroying the Manger") and the creation of a modern empire. In addition to their unusual lyrical content, the band employed the use of keyboards which was virtually unheard of at the time in the broader genre of death metal.

1. Possess the Priest Lyrics.

Nocturnus are known for their sci-fi lyrics and extensive use of keyboards/synths in their often progressive oriented death metal music, but on this demo there are no keyboards/synths and the lyrics revolve around occultism. The music is old school US death metal. If anyone have heard "Abominations of Desolation (1991)" by Morbid Angel (that album was recorded in 1986-1987, while Mike Browning was still a part of the band) or "Scream Bloody Gore (1987)" by Death, you�ll pretty much have an idea of how this demo sounds. Raw and rather primitive death metal.
