Hailing from Nicosia, Cyprus (consisting of Greek and Turkish Cypriot and Romanian members), the four-piece distinguished themselves locally through their signature and unique blend of spine-crushing riffs and melody topped with distinctive vocals. Nekhrah have released a home-recorded demo in 2014, under their former name and have currently completed recording their first full-length album entitled Cosmic Apostasy which was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music. The artwork of the album and the design of the band logo was done by Maciej Kamuda.
The band name “Nekhrah” is an Anglicised version of the Greek word “Νέκρα” 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.
“Humanity is but a herd of ritualistic apes that congregate to ceremonialise their own insignificance”.
Nekhrah's debut album "Cosmic Apostasy" is out now digitally and availavle via Bandcamp. Previously known as Impalement, the Mediterranean-based act just self-released their first full-length. Physical copies coming soon.
