With immaculate songwriting skills and the perfect balance between dark cinematic, alt-rock, and melodic melancholy, Nepthisis unleash their darkness-fueled, chaos-driven album Spiral Hollow on January 21, 2022.
Listen to a new track, “Locked Up on This Hill.” Stream below.
Spearheaded by multi-disciplined artist Sheila Eden, Spiral Hollow comes from a place below the surface where the sleepless and sinister dwell. Heavily inspired by Egyptian mythology and the twin goddesses Nephthys and Isis – from which the outfit garners their name – Spiral Hollow is transformed by the darkest of dreams and the most primal desires. Musically, this exploration takes on gothic nuances while abandoning any hesitation in exchange for a more aggressive spirit unbound by genres.
Sheila Eden comments: “During the pandemic, I took a deep, dark dive and unleashed my true honest, chosen sound and identity in an album under the dark goddess name & brand Nepthisis. The music is dark and heart-wrenching, and pairs with cinematic visuals and storytelling. This is my dream, and it’s coming to fruition. It feels exciting and vulnerable, daring and aligned.”
Nepthisis dwells in the realm of modern female performers Chelsea Wolfe and Zola Jesus – combining goth, industrial, electronic, and experimental rock. The musical influences are cross-genre with tonal qualities of hard-hitting 1990s groups Deftones, Massive Attack, NIN, My Bloody Valentine and How To Destroy Angels.
Nepthisis is a multi-faceted and dynamic musical discovery that will engulf fans in a shroud of the unknown. Walk the uncharted path.HINT: If you enjoyed reading this, you can support Inhale the Heavy by buying Ken a coffee or purchasing vinyl at Amazon.com.
