NORDGEIST were conceived in the Siberian city of Bratsk in the Irkutsk Oblast at the junction of the rivers Oka and the mighty Angara. This territory once belonged to the nomadic Buryat people, who are related to the Mongolians and renowned for their close relationship to nature. Bratsk lies in the subarctic climate zone, which results in dark, long cold winters.
It is therefore quite easy to see, where T, the mysterious mastermind and musician behind NORDGEIST took inspiration from. Her approach to black metal is obviously shaped by the Nordic scene, with which T’s music shares a penchant for majestic melodies and cineastic soundscapes, but also delivers an extra dose of viscious fury.
Founded in 2017, NORDGEIST caused an immediate stir in the black underground with the split-release “Nordwinter”, which they shared with VINTERKULT.
Now NORDGEIST unleash their ice-crowned album debut “Frostwinter”, which will hit the world like a black blizzard from Siberia.
