Shabda from ARGONAUTA Records

ARGONAUTA Records shared another new release with us and we are excited to share it with you!

At its core, it is drone with elements of Indian music.  Put on some headphones – and the music will take you on a ride all its own.  Kamakhya is a powerful track for that reason.  You are lured into a sense of softness – only for something else to lurk around the bend….

Shabda was formed in 2012 in northern Italy by Anna Airoldi, Marco Castagnetto (also of ZenPunk) and Riccardo Fassone, who had previously worked together SHABDA bandin Thee Maldoror Kollective. With the inception of Shabda, the trio has started crafting meditative, repetitive sounds, with the aim to fuse Indian music, doom metal and minimalist exploration into a trance inducing, often somber droning ritual.

Their first record, “The Electric Bodhisattva”, was released in 2013 by Paradigms Recordings. Musically interpreting the perennial tradition, the new album TUMMO focuses on kundalini alchemy by means of deep guitar tunes, microtonal intervals and ritual documents recorded in Varanasi, Sarnath and Amber.

Out on noble digisleeve limited edition 300 copies, glossy lacquer.

Crafting meditative, repetitive sounds, fusing Indian music, doom metal and minimalist exploration into a trance inducing, often somber droning ritual.

Recommended to fans of Earth, Bong, Amon Düül, Ash Ra Tempel, La Monte Young.
