If there is one band in the current neofolk scene, that stands out among all other bands it’s Et Nihil for sure. Rising from the ashes from legendary Luftwaffe, b9 InViD, RB and Jonathan S consequently follow their artistic vision and present a highly dynamic and powerful variety of the genre.
“Nor Am I” is their first official studio release after the limited and sought-after “Onus” CDR, two live-albums and numerous singles and the first one to be released on Lichterklang.
“Nor Am I” contains 13 tracks of pure neofolk mayhem, spanning from the morbidity of the neofolk genre to the intense drumming martial industrial is known for up to harsh and distorted vocals characterized by the Industrial scene,defining a new and modernized version of neofolk.
‘Onus, quantitatively speaking, goes straight into the opposite direction. Its seven songs violently ravish the listener and spit him back out in less than half an hour. This change of pace cannot go unnoticed as many more industrial suggestions evolve at the expense of acoustic guitars; the most brutal of the two souls that co-founded Luftwaffe seems to have partially won over the other.’ HH
The album comes in two versions: a regular digipak version and in a limited edition including a remastered version of “Onus” on CD. The remaster was done by Michael Power from Area Bombardment.
