Shabda announces new studio album “Vishnu Sahasranama - 10 Studi” - due out in Fall 2017

After the 2 tracks long celebration of “Pharmakon / Pharmakos”, released a year and half ago by Argonauta Records, Shabda are back in the studio recording their fourth album which will see the light in early Autumn 2017.

Vishnu Sahasranama - 10 Studi” – this is the title - is inspired by the traditional Indian Vaishnava text commented by Sankara and representing the model of the garland of a thousand names, the practice of meditation on the metaphysical qualities of god Visnu conceived as the absolute principle.

Shabda to release “Pharmakon/Pharmakos” on September 7th 2015

“Pharmakon / Pharmakos” is the third album by Shabda, a year after the highly acclaimed psychic journey of Tummo. Voluntary hermits established in the rural countryside of Canavese, Piedmont, they fulfill, with this work, a rite of foundation, emanating their blanket of dense droning sound to link distant yet compatible musical mythologies. The two suites forming the album shape time, space and repetition building a sound that drives West and East to confront in the field of pure sound: it's not doom, nor folk, nor drone in strict sense, but the heavy golden thread that structures the homogeneity of compositions draws a monolithic identity, simultaneously saturnine and solar.
