On the eve of the band’s performance at Power of the Night Festival, Cypriot death metallers Nekhrah reveal the title track for impending debut album, “Cosmic Apostasy,” which can be heard below. Previously known as Impalement, the Mediterranean act will self-release this album on September 29th, 2017.
Hailing from Nicosia, Cyprus the four-piece group distinguished itself locally through a signature blend of spine-crushing riffs and melody topped with distinctive vocals. New album “Cosmic Apostasy” was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music and artwork was handled by Maciej Kamuda.
The band name Nekhrah is an Anglicized version of the Greek word “????a” which means “death” or “deadness” and/or “emptiness” in Greek. The philosophy behind the band is Nihilistic. That is to say, the belief that existence is meaningless and that there is no inherent meaning in anything we do, think, or experience. The lyrics revolve heavily around misanthropy, cataclysm, self-destruction and a desire of non-existence.
