NGANGA Drop New Single "Vacuous Dream", Announce New EP!

Black metal affront NGANGA have revealed the first single from their upcoming EP, Phthisis, due out September 29th. "Vacuous Dream" spits pure venom and seethes ominous raw atmosphere as it pummels from the depths. Stream it HERE.

The band shares: "We’re very excited to release our first single, Vacuous Dream, from our upcoming album, Phthisis, out on 9/29! It’s the first song written with our complete lineup which uses fast riffs and dissonant melodies to create the dark atmosphere that sets the tone for the themes explored throughout Phthisis.”

On their new album, NGANGA calls forth a relentless barrage of cacophonous sound straight from the fiery depths. The five track album is named Phthisis, which is another word for tuberculosis. The title makes perfect sense when vocalist Eyn explodes onto the opening track “Absent Light,” spitting venomous bile in every direction. The album is not without its calmer moments, however, calling attention to NGANGA’s innate ability to cultivate a variety of emotions and atmospheric textures through their music. Nowhere is this more clear than on the second track, “Wound.” Still, the trend continues throughout the album, providing listeners with a momentary but satisfying view into the spectacularly dark and twisted world of NGANGA.

Originating from Raleigh, North Carolina, NGANGA is an up and coming black metal group with four members. They have managed to captivate listeners with their intricate fusion of chaos and beauty. The band draws inspiration from various sources such as WEAKLING, YELLOW EYES, KRALLICE, REVOCATION, and BEYOND CREATION. Through their varied inspirations and massive talents, NGANGA has created a musical landscape that breathes new life into traditional black metal, injecting it with fresh energy amid dark and atmospheric undertones.

NGANGA was originally formed as a duo by vocalist Eyn and drummer Jordan King, The band then expanded its lineup by enlisting Charles Meyer to handle lead melodies for their 2022 demo, De Muerte. The demo was very well received, with Invisible Oranges even including it on the best of list for the year 2022. The exceptionally positive reception to De Muerte led the band to welcome Nate Stokes, guitarist of NOCTOMB, into their ranks. This addition marked a turning point in the band's evolution as they began writing and recording their highly anticipated debut album, Phthisis.

Having gained a dedicated following within the North Carolina black metal scene and completing two successful tours along the East Coast, NGANGA has firmly established itself as a powerful presence in the underground. As they prepare to unleash their unique style of black metal to a wider audience, NGANGA is poised to make a significant impact on the music scene.
