SHIBALBA was created by the members of Black Metal bands, Acherontas and Nåstrond. It differs greatly from the aforementioned acts, with main focus set on expressing shamanic, trance-like states, by the use of ethnic instruments and musical technics peculiar to religious rituals.
Some of the more traditional instruments they use include Tibetan horns; singing bowls, bone horn trumpets, darbukas, ceremonial bells; gongs as well as percussion instruments made of bones and skulls. The music is richly detailed and multidimensional, while its outcome is deep, unsettling and subconscious. As a whole, it offers an otherworldly voyage.
