Na Alma is the first part of a trilogy called No Ser. This is an ambitious and extensive work already written in its entirety, which is an excellent introduction of Xhamain.
The style of the Galician sextet combines elements of traditional Celtic music, such as bagpipes and flutes, with the strength and energy of metal with gothic and symphonic hints. The male/female vocal duality adds a great variety of melodic nuances to the final result.
Regarding the visual design, the band has hired the services of the Bulgarian artist Georgi Georgiev from Moon Ring Design, who has magnificently expressed the sound of the album with evocative dreamlike images.
Recorded and mixed by Ruben Alonso at Kastell von Pahlomen Studios and mastered by Tony Lindgren (Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Blind Guardian, Eluveitie...) at Fascination Street Studios (Arch Enemy, Amon Amarth, Sepultura, Moonspell...), Na Alma will be played live on tour throughout 2022.
