Shibalba is an otherworldly, meditative project from the members of Greek and Swedish black metal bands, Acherontas and Nåstrond. It differs greatly from the aforementioned acts, with main focus set on expressing shamanic, trance-like states, by the use of ethnic instruments and musical technics peculiar to religious rituals. In doing so, the band also incorporates contemporary synthesizers and guitar drones. Some of the more traditional instruments they use include Tibetan horns & singing bowls, bone & horne trumpets, darbukas, ceremonial bells & gongs as well as percussion instruments made of bones and skulls. The music is richly detailed and multidimensional, while its outcome is deep, unsettling and subconscious. As a whole, it offers an otherworldly voyage.
"Stars Al-Med Hum" was recorded and produced by the band themselves and both mixed and mastered by Nekelmu Ilu. The latter also created the album's cover artwork.

Si certains font dans Isis et l'égypte antique, d'autres dans Cthulu et la mythologie lovecraftienne, Et Moriemur tape allègrement dans la Grèce Antique. Cela dit, s'il n'y avait pas les textes, on se croirait à l'époque médiévale avec Tristitia (sans les soli de fou). Quoi qu'il en soit, le chant et les guitares plombés offrent un beau contraste avec les choeurs... écoutes et Connais-toi toi même ! Nicolas RESSOT
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
