26/Jan/2017 SHIBALBA SIGN WITH AGONIA RECORDS

Greek meditative dark trance/ambient/shamanic act SHIBALBA has signed a record deal with Agonia Records. The band is preparing to release a new studio album titled "Psychostasis - Death Of Khat" this April.

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 & horne trumpets, Darbuka's (goblet drums) as well as ceremonial bells and gongs, to name a few.

The spirits behind the shamanic halls of SHIBALBA are Acherontas V.Priest, Aldra-Al-Melekh & Karl NE/Nachzehrer. The intent of their esoteric art is to "guide the subconsious of the individual to dream beyond the skin of matter & to dream in ecstasy and exult".

SHIBALBA commented: "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 does not reside in the estates of the everlasting. Divided we are at the death of Khat, before Psychostasis".

"Nine Meditative Worlds Experienced and manifested in Sweden and Greece by the Ancient Teachings of  Eastern Visions 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!".
