Following their latest album, “Salbrox” (2019, Ritual Productions), Blackened Sludge and Drone trio, NIBIRU, have re-signed with Argonauta Records for the release of their sixth studio album, titled “Panspermia”, that will be seeing the light of day on Friday the 13rd of November 2020.
NIBIRU deliver a very special, truly unique and inspiring sound, as they develop their musical aesthetics through the recitation of the Enochian keys, whose evocation aims at precise ritual effects, and the insertion of intimate and disturbing verses in Italian. The band’s sources of extramusical influences are inspired by occultists and esotericists such as Aleister Crowley, Kenneth Grant, Austin Osman Spare and Julius Evola, but also psychiatric essays, a deep inner illness and a peculiar cult for the actor Klaus Kinski. The trio invites the listener to be part of a ritual: NIBIRU’s sound is a mental, noisy and apocalyptic journey of visionary magic, elemental prophecies and esoteric superomism. Tribal percussions, evocative mantras and hypnotic drones merge into a completely new interpretation of Black and Doom Metal, while psychedelic tapestries draw a fascinating and idiosyncratic art. The shrill and inhuman voice of Ardat will drag you into a kingdom of mystical abandonment and possession. NIBIRU is indeed a ritual; a heavily deep, disturbing, wild but atmospheric ride on every level – of your soul, spirit and body. Become part of their sound ritual, and get on this disturbing yet haunting trip of their new album, as the band just unleashed a first teaser! Watch the clip, not for the fainted heart, right here.
Vocalist and guitarist Ardat comments: “Panspermia”, the limit of the alchemical path, the ancestral environment finds its balance in the mutability. The physical, ferocious rage of “Qaal Babalon”, the painfully cerebral violence of “Salbrox” and finally the primordial soup “Panspermia”, the last desolate journey divided into four steps, without interruption, alkaest, aqua solis, efflatus, kteis, ebb to the earth, to chaos to “Caosgon”.
