SHIBALBA - Reveals Details About Upcoming Album

Meditative/dark/trance/ambient/shamanic act Shibalba, featuring Acherontas V.Priest (Acherontas), Karl NE/Nachzehrer (Nåstrond) and Aldra-Al-Melekh in its ranks, has revealed details surrounding the upcoming album entitled Psychostasis - Death Of Khat. The opus will be released on 30th April via Agonia Records, and it will include 10 new songs. Cover artwork is made by Karl NE and can be viewed below.
Psychostasis - Death Of Khat was recorded by the band themselves in Greece and Sweden. The new material is deeply ritual and meditative, and was recorded in a manner in which sound vibrations have been registered in a form analogous to the way in which the human ear perceives sound. Extremely high standards were provided especially for the vinyl edition of the album. The band commented: "This is a deep meditative work, ideal for higher purposes; burning incense and listening in headphones under the moonlight are required for best experience."
Shibalba's music is saturated with the mysticism of the east. It's richly detailed and multidimensional, while layered with chanting and broadly defined elements of traditional ritual and shamanic music. Apart from contemporary synths and guitar drones, the band makes use of bones and skulls as percussion instruments, Tibetan horns, Tibetan singing bowls, bone and horne trumpets, darbuka's (goblet drums) as well as ceremonial bells and gongs, to name a few. The band's intention, in their own words, is to "guide the subconsious of the individual to dream beyond the skin of matter and to dream in ecstasy and exult. Τhe secret society of Shibalba inaugurate the transparent alignment beyond death and the transcendence of the Higher Self. The conscious pneuma transposes the bridge among worlds to unite Now with Forever. Our physical vessel, our Khat, is only the conduit for the attainment of spiritual and intellectual enlightenment. Soul and intelligence do not reside in the estates of the everlasting. Divided we are at the death of Khat, before Psychostasis. Ten meditative worlds experienced and manifested in Sweden and Greece by the ancient teachings of  eastern visions and of personal empirism using physical ritual recordings and instruments. Unlocking the portals of the individual to new dimensions of experience to dream beyond-above & below!".
The album will be available in CD, LP and digital formats along with additional merchandise. More details along with the pre-orders will be announced shortly by the label. Tracklist and cover artwork are below. Link
