NORDVARGR - 'The Secret Barbarous Names' CD


In Stock
Dark Ambient / Ritual
Record Label:
Malignant Records

Extended CD version of a digital EP, which was self-released mid-2016, now with 4 bonus tracks. Few names within the realm of dark industrial and blackened ambient carry more weight and presence than Sweden's mighty Nordvargr (MZ.412, Pouppée Fabrikk, Folkstorm etc). A vocal based work inspired by the Draconian and Typhonian traditions, the title refers to the hidden meanings of the countless manuscripts that have been kept secret for millennia - their supposed effectiveness resting in their utterance, not their meaning. The words of power, vibrated at the correct frequency and amplitude in the correct setting and time, have the power to manifest anything. As such, these are an incredibly haunting and formidable invocations, built upon richly timbered, incantatory vocals and deep, liturgical chants, and occasionally augmented by ominous orchestral swell and ritual percussion. All of it is endlessly stretched out into lightless passages of primordial malevolence and suffocating dread. Comes in a 6-panel digipak designed by Margaux Renaudin (Anima Nostra).
