“...Neste penoso caminho rumo a escuridão , lembramos as almas de todos os nosso que partiram...” Mário Rodrigues

From the warm sunshiny Portuguese lands comes the dark atmospheric, depressive black metal Projekt Nöir, a cold and sinister project from Mario Rodrigues (Karbonsoul) featuring
Jóhann Örn (Dynfari) vocals in Icelandic and José Goncalves (Empire) on drum duties! This is a damn curious Dark Ambient /Avant-garde / Black & Depressive Post Atmospheric Metal work, something unusual from Lusitanian lands, yet it works pretty well due to musician's quality!
The debut EP "Ský" takes you deeply into a dark cold land where lifeless bodies lay and darkened souls float in the black horizon before you! A painful path roaming towards darkness, remembering the souls of all that have left us!

In fact this EP is a great introduction of what is to come on future band endeavours! This is allot more than just sterile project, it's really expressing the cold and dark creative art of metal within its most atmospheric and depressive form, taking the listener deep into a freezing world of agony! This shall probably please fans of bands such as Forgotten Tomb, Burzum, Nargaroth, Xasthur just to mention few!

The presentation EP "Ský" is quite solid and makes your journey across its short length to be felt in a intense way! "Ský" (Clouds) the title track, introduces you into this blackened cold atmosphere, a strong dark track that takes the listener deep into the arms of its lifeless landscape. "Sjálfsmynd dauðleikans" ("identity mortality") song follows with a dark epic twist to it, here the listener dares deeper into this land of the dead! The journey of sorrow, grief and agony continues across the next song "Í regni elds og brennisteins" ("The rain of fire and sulfur") that leads you the last track "Á vit tilgangs" ("The sense of purpose"), here a cold wind blows across the battlefield... the sound of horns ignite the ultimate war! The end is drawing near... are you ready to fight and give a meaning to your existence!?

In all "Ský" is a quite good presentation EP for Projekt Nöir. Dark and atmospheric, this is a daring black metal experience that will surely please its adepts. From misty textures to enlightened melodies this is in fact an inspired avant-garde and post black/dark metal project! A journey across an archaic domain of those who have departed from life and embraced eternal darkness! Do you dare to venture deep into the path of the dead and achieve the meaning of life itself?
