Named after Siberia’s most northern city, NORILSK draws their inspirations and themes from Northern identity, isolation, and world demise. Incorporating elements of sludge and post-metal along with influences from doom-death metal bands such as Thergothon, Saturnus and early My Dying Bride, the duo is streaming a taste of their debut EP, “Japetus”!
Presented in a very limited CD edition and digital format, the ‘Japetus’ EP is both an introduction to the band and a teaser to future recordings. Clocking just under 20-minutes, the EP includes the title track ‘Japetus’, which will be on the band’s later planned full length album and also features one alternate version of ‘Potsdam Glo’ along with a cover of Voivod’s song ‘Negatron’, which is exclusively available on the CD.
The title track ‘Japetus’ is now streaming below:
