Alburquerque band, Hiemis have now presented a new album through Noctivagant Records.
The record, Hyperborea, experiments with atmospheric sounds that echo cosmically.
Of the concept album, the band says, “The science and machinery of our civilization has long been forgotten, along with our present religion. But there are many gods who are worshiped, and sorcery and demonology prevail again as in the days of old. Sailors only use oars and sails. There are no firearms—just bows, arrows, swords, spears, etc. as in ancient times. The primarily spoken spoken language (of which I have proven examples in an unpublished drama) has Indo-European root bases and is largely descended from Sanskrit, Greek, and Latin.”
