The band Nibiru deliver a ritual psychedelic sludge on their new album Salbrox and the track Exarp is the first aural and visual offering,
Exarp meaning spirit Of Air in Enochian magic and the video calls you into Nibiru’s alchemic sphere of scrying and manifesting visions, intent and psychic wisdom. The very interesting and artwork and visuals are courtesy of the ever innovative Valnoir/Metastazis video direction by Marco Testa. Conceptually and spiritually, Salbrox is inspired by the continuous re-adjustment between disharmony and balance.
For those uninitiated to Nibiru’s sound, the band formed in 2012 with shared spiritual and emotional knowledge existing between the three members. This knowledge transmuted, and every energy concentrated, into a totally impetuous creative approach with their subsequent sonic sorcery conjuring a ritualistic psychedelia. The Italian three-piece immerse listeners within their terrifically hypnotic realm of mind-altering heavy psychedelic sonics, where deep Enochian chants seamlessly infuse with phenomenally sublime ritualistic tones. The result induces an entrancing and magic ambience that simultaneously conjures awe and wonder with foreboding danger and terror, speaking profoundly to your subconscious. Extreme in all elements, Nibiru continue to reach higher musical prowess with each aural offering.
To date, Nibiru have four releases that have met exceptional praise from the worldwide press, Caosgon, Netrayoni, Padmalotus and Qaal Babalon, respectively. The band have also hosted a string of soaring gigs across Europe, including an excellent performance at the 2016 edition of the highly esteemed Roadburn Festival. The line-up Ardat with guitars, percussion & vocals, Ri Salma with bass, drones & synthesizers and L.C. Chertan drums.
Salbrox from the Enochian language is translated sulfur. The band profess the rite is a cataclysmic psychic journey of visionary magic, elemental prophecies and esoteric super normality. Tribal percussion, evocative mantras and hypnotic drones imbued with the band’s amalgamation of black metal, doom metal and psychedelic textures formulates a fascinating, idiosyncratic art. Vocals harbor a possessed and rasping quality that surely summon specters far beyond our comprehensible realm, bringing forth a divination of the self.
