Noekk is manned by a pair of musicians who were last seen together in the unique band known as Empyrium. That group was put to rest based on the claim that there was nothing left to accomplish, and that sentiment appears to hold here, since Noekk has very little in common with Empyrium, or with any other band for that matter. The style here is rather strange, consisting of a bit of dark prog rock/metal, plenty of ambient moments, and in general a rather doomy feel (though not doom metal in the traditional sense), with Thomas Helm's semi-operatic, semi-baritone vocals lending the right touch of gloom and mysticism to the proceedings. There are metallic elements sprinkled throughout, but labelling Noekk a metal band would be a stretch. Having said that, their style is intriguing, and some left-field metal fans might find them of interest.
