The Nightmare Begins...
"NAVTILVS - not influenced by a specific style of music, but by our nightmares & the cataclysmic prospects of the downfall of this cursed world experienced daily.
We started this as an art project that became a band & mutated into some kind of an unitary movement.
Since this collective was founded in Vienna in 2008, it has gone through a lot of turbulence, like various line-up changes & so on. But it never abandoned the aim for which it was founded. This is a band working differently. First there is a lyrical concept in which we put our musical ideas. Somewhere in between heavy & dark post-hardcore, dissonant instrumental eruptions, & ambient soundscapes. Apart from the inner circle of the band, which manifests itself in a-five piece, we work with artists/musicians of all genres that are willing to put pieces of themselves into the creative process.
In April 2010, we issued our first official release, the “POLARIS VLTIMAT I”-EP. This piece of music is the first part of a trilogy dealing with the motif of isolation. It tells the story of a man who lives an average life, has average friends and an average job. One day he awakes & everyone is gone. The only thing that remains of a former civilization are the snowcovered ruins of his previously reality. On his quest to find another human being, he faces the harsh wilderness & the lethality of total isolation & self-mutilation…" ~ (Last.FM)
