ERSHETU presents "Xibalba"

"The inclination for film scores or comparatively open soundscapes guarantees special impressions..."Xibalba" achieves a grace and remarkable depth that one quickly succumbs to." (Legacy)

With debut "Xibalba", lyricist Void (DMP), composer Sacr, Vindsval (BLUT AUS NORD) and Lars Are Nedland (BORKNAGAR) have created a uniquely expressive soundworld forged from ancient culture, modern creativity and idiosyncratic songcraft. ERSHETU’s first full length, featuring 6 epic and cinematic Black Metal pieces, can now be streamed in full on our YouTube channel. Check here:

Sacr describes "Xibalba":

"The idea behind ERSHETU is to compose film music first and foremost and to adapt it to Metal. In film music, the possibilities are truly infinite: the choice of instruments, orchestration, emotional changes and so on. As a film composer myself and a Metal fan, ERSHETU is a real source of inspiration for me when it comes for the themes it deals with. Void and I have always loved the dark, atmospheric side of Black Metal. It's hard to do otherwise when you're talking about death, spirituality and/or the cult of a vanished civilization. I think, however, the music could evolve depending on the subject matter because according to certain religions, cultures or philosophies, death is not something negative. It can be seen as a passage or a new stage in the eternity of life..."
