Additional notes
Known as one of the first death metal bands to incorporate keyboard and sound effects into their music and science fiction-themed lyrics.

During 1992 Panzer, McNenney and Davis trademarked the band name and fired Mike Browning from the band he himself created.

In 2008, After Death performed Nocturnus songs live (only songs from ''The Key'' as well as a couple Morbid Angel songs from ''Abominations of Desolation'' were played) on an exclusively European tour. This, however, is NOT to be considered a Nocturnus reunion (even Mike Browning himself stated this). In 2013, Mike Browning founded Nocturnus A.D. with After Death members, as a reformed version of Nocturnus. This, however, isn't a Nocturnus reunion.
