Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus – “Virgin Essence” ft. James Dorton
Forged out of the icy wilderness of the north, this beast of Helsinki/Philadelphia composes odes of cold subsonics and frigid atmospheres. Inspired by founder Mika Mage’s Finnish heritage, the band showcases Ambient Black Metal visuals and atmospheres. Cold, grim, and strangely uplifting, Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus are masters of melancholy.
Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus is an ambient black metal act from Philadelphia, PA. It was co-founded by American/Finnish dual-citizen Mika Mage and Manuel Rodriguez in 2012, and has since put out a self-titled promo, a LP ‘Synkkä Tuuli’ (Finnish for “Grim Wind”) on Horror Pain Gore Death Productions, an EP ‘Väinämöinen’ and LP ‘The Child Must Die’ on Infernal Kommando Records, and a single ‘Immaculate Deconception’ on Depressive Illusions Records. Mika Mage remains the sole founding member and the lone creative force, with the next EP ‘Madness Incarnate’ to be released on Symbol of Domination Productions & Black Lion Productions on May 16, 2016.
With the release of ‘Madness Incarnate’, Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus develops further upon the progressive black metal styling of their critically acclaimed LP ‘The Child Must Die’, with the infusion of more doom, melodic, and brutal death metal influences. Band co-founder Mika Mage leads a talented group of studio musicians, including three guest vocalists from exciting acts such as Omelas, Lesch-Nyhan, and international touring sensation Black Crown Initiate. Fans that have followed the development of Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus from its early days of raw atmospheric aggression will enjoy the dynamic range ‘Madness Incarnate’ encompasses, and relish in the artistic vision it displays for the future.
