Southern Lord is very proud to present the first ever domestic release of cult underground Tasmanian Black Metal legend: Sin-Nanna aka Striborg. Sin (Nanna)" is a Sumerian crescent moon god and "Striborg" is the god of winds in slavonic mythology. All winds and storms are said to be his grandsons ("stribozhivnuci"). Bleak, misanthropic, depressive Black Metal with, blurry guitars, clean ephemeral bass and plodding relentlessly pounding rhythms that create a very dark and ghostly atmosphere. Lyrics about the forest, fog and nocturnal desires. Contains a brand new recording along with the very rare "Isle Des Mortes" demo from 1997. Released under exclusive license from Displeased Records in the Netherlands.

_Embittered Darkness_ is brilliant. The production quality is so broken and bad, delivering static-like streams of scorched riffage. Sin-nanna's goblinoid vocals are impossibly twisted and disturbing. There are many strange interludes that deepen the mystery, from creepy distorted ambiance or disturbing synths.
But then _Isles de Morts_ is completely different. It's about ten years older, so that should be expected. Yet it almost sounds less like lo-fi black metal and more like some kind of industrial hellscape of hyperspeed junkyard machines. It is a brutal sonic onslaught of blasting buzz that cuts your soul with blades of pure entropy. The production doesn't even stay the same from song to song, yet there is a weird transcendent coherence to the sound, as the mix warps and distorts. You will dread to even ponder the wretched mind that conceived this relentlessly disturbing epic. It's not necessarily the BEST Striborg, but it is the scariest.
