Newly founded digital label Immortal Bytes presents the debut album from POMBAJIRA.
“Pombajira” is a six-song excavation of deathly doom draped in darkness and dirtiness! In fact, after the record’s 30 minutes of pulsing, punishing filth, it’ll take you at least a week just to feel clean again! Or, imagine Pentagram’s most earth-shaking doom moments integrated into the atmosphere of Celtic Frost’s Into the Pandemonium, creating a ritualistic and ecstatic trance… Truly, POMBAJIRA’s debut album is a bolt from the blue – a dark horse ready to run you over!
Formed in late 2017, POMBAJIRA was created by ex-Grave Desecrator Hellson Röcha. Soon enough, he roped in a drummer and also his old guitar-playing friend Blizzard. After a year of wasting time with this drummer, T. Splatter (Velho, Lápide, Poem’s Death etc) took up the drum duties.
Directly influenced by bands like Black Sabbath, Hellhammer, Venom, Pentagram, as well as others of a similar dark ilk.
POMBAJIRA’s moniker derives from their Afro-Brazilian cultural roots and serves as a foundation to flirt with the enigmatic spiritual imagery and sometimes superstitious atmosphere which is around them. In addition to their personal experiences, the band is influenced by magick, rebellion, sarcasm, and darkness. What results is uniquely POMBAJIRA, and what the band brand HEAVY ROCK INFERNO!
Immortal Bytes is a digital label, distribution & promotion service for underground metal. Founded in 2019, aiming to bring you some of the most promising death, thrash, black, heavy, doom and avantgarde metal the underground has to offer.
