The Lowdown:

I first came across Italian Sludge/Doom Metallers - NIBIRU - back in 2012 when I was still involved with The Sludgelord.

I reviewed their debut album - Caosgon - which I rated very highly back in the day. The band impressed me with their psychedelic ritual sludge based sounds set against a dronish backdrop of experimental sounds.

Since then NIBIRU have gone to make a name for themselves within the Doom/Sludge Metal community. The band are now signed to Argonauta Records who are about to re-release Caosgon.

Now again available with a totally new artwork, remastered sound and a bonus song previously unreleased, from the original recording sessions. The cool folks over at Argonauta Records know that I'm a huge fan of this album and they've indly let me premiere the whole new album in full.

Caosgon – 2017 Edition is a more gloomier and disturbing offering than the original. With the slightly more creepy artwork drawing you into NIBIRU's disturbing world.
Now you can experience the new album the way it's meant to be heard. The band are currently at work recording their new album due for release in 2018.

Words by Steve Howe
