Conceived 2010 in Venezuela and now operating from Chile, SELBST embody the vision of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist/composer/lyricist “N” to bring about the “maximum realisation of the Being” through an alignment of strident power and wild, untrammelled fervour that reveals its true majesty upon repeat listening.
We proudly present “Relatos De Angustia” (“Stories Of Anguish“), the immense second full-length from SELBST which finds the band realising their potential in definitive style.
There is a uniquely self-possessed otherness to SELBST’s take on crushingly immersive Black Metal – encompassing as it does contemporary French and Icelandic strains of transcendent dissonance, hammer-blows subsumed from the mid ’90s Norwegian canon, the alienated textures of DSBM and the belligerent singularity of the Polish hordes tempered on occasion with melodic sensibilities akin to top-tier post-Black Metal.
“Relatos De Angustia” will be released on CD, 12″ LP, exclusive DMP edition 12″ LP and digital on August 7th (August 14th in North America). Pre-orders are possible now via the label’s EU shop, Bandcamp and US shop.
SELBST was formed in 2010 in Venezuela by multi-instrumentalist/lyricist N and vocalist Frozen, releasing their initial demo “Veritas Filia Temporis” shortly afterwards. N subsequently moved to Chile in 2016 to search out new collaborators and opportunities. The resultant self-titled full-length featuring vocals by N. Onfray of ANIMUS MORTIS was released in 2017 to great underground acclaim.
In 2018 N became SELBST’s lead vocalist and the project turned into a fully-fledged live band, taking to the stage for the first time as the next step of their evolution.
2019 saw the band sign with Debemur Morti Productions and the new album is scheduled to be released in summer 2020.
