Return to the shadows and forsake the putrid light! Hear ye mortals and despair at the coming of Akhkharu! A re-issue of the seminal 1996 opus nocturne, Nos Noctium Dominarium takes us into shadows so deep and black that the only light we know is the smell and taste of blood. We are given audience to the profane and disturbing rituals of blood, sacrifice, and darkness carried from secret brother to secret brother from time immemorial for years beyond reckoning. Harken back to the dark days of old when the vampire stalked the forests and the ancients fastnesses, when they spoke in occultic rhymes in the darkness of the new moon.
Taste again that arcane, occultic wine of sound. The reissue gives new acolytes a chance to explore the cavernous sounds, the beginnings of occultic ambient with chants and music that emulates the horrors remembered from the horror films of our youth. With ancient rhythms blended with modern liturgical rituals that recall the ancient rites of Babylon and Assyria. Welcome back the masters of occultic ritual ambient with a triumphant reissue of classic misanthropic and mysterious malevolence. Feel your sanity begin to fray as the cinematic masterpiece overwhelms your senses one at a time. With myriad instruments and soundscapes, Akhkharu shrouds the sun with sinister cadence.
Ia Iak Pazuzu! Ia iak Lamashtu! Ia iak Lilith!
