Ahead of its release on August 7th (August 14th in North America), we’re pleased to unveil “Relatos De Angustia“, SELBST‘s new full length album, in its entirety. “From start to finish, Relatos de Angustia is a captivating and unique record.” (8/10 – Decibel Mag.)
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.
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.
As of 2020, SELBST stands ready to release a brand new full-length album, “Relatos De Angustia”, a deep, challenging listen which sees SELBST fully realized and rewards repeated exploration.
