Regarding the new track, vocalist Naas Alcameth issued the following statement:
“The Otherness of Being speaks of the longing for union with one’s own higher daimon, an aspect of-self that is paradoxically ones “otherness”. It speaks of being and non-being and approaching via incubation and dreams the cross roads in the underworld where one can come to know and to be one’s “otherness”, the shadow self, free within the “eternal now” outside of time and circumstance. The longing for this union is the heart of the melancholia, both gift and burden. “

Established in 1999, NIGHTBRINGER was created as a conduit for the contemplations on the mysteries of death as it is understood in the tradition of the art magical. The band have an uncompromising, orthodox approach to black metal. 2011’s ‘Hierophany of the Open Grave’ has further solidified the band’s signature sound: characterized by cacophonous walls of distortion, haunting melodies, and occult lyrics revering the unholy.
NIGHTBRINGER has made select rare appearances in the United States and Europe as part of various metal festivals; these include Maryland Deathfest, Under the Black Sun Festival, and the cult Gathering of the Shadows.
