I am offended by the fact that there is not yet a thread for this band, so I decided to take the liberty of creating it myself.

The sound of this band is truly an enigma. The best way I can describe it is Pink Floyd mixed with black metal with the sounds of nature sprinkled in between. Since they have a powerful ambient influence, their songs are slow and flowing and last for longer than 10 minutes. For lack of a better expression, this is the kind of band you would take with you on a long car trip. If you want to listen to it, here's their MySpace page.

If you ask me, their best album would have be their first, "Njimajikal Arts", which also happens to be their most peaceful. Now discuss away.

I was going to make one actually, but hardly anyone posts in these threads anymore, so I said fuck it to that. Anyways, thses guys are one of my favorite bands, employing what really has become to be known as the whole Cascadian black metal sound (even though they're not from there). The thing that I hate is that EEE charges 15 bucks for a goddamn EP of theirs, and they release so freaking many things that you can't possibly get it all if you're into buying it.

Njimjikal arts is good, but drawn out sometimes, just like most of their releases. They do get pretty boring occasionally. Taegnuub - Ishnji Angma is a really great album as well, with shorter songs, and I also really enjoy Yrg Alms and some of the more ambient albums.

What really gets me though is that they release lots of stuff, AND also have Oaks Of Bethel going and it's all really good. Their concept is really genius and original, and I absolutely could listen to just their drumming all day. It's beautiful stuff.

They formed back in 2005, so they're not that new. But what amazes me - as was said recently - is the fact that they're able to release a massive amount of material in a short amount of time.

In regard to the second part, I started listening to them based on a recommendation from another user (I forgot where the original recommendation was). Anyway, I listened to the band's material and I became lost in a dissonant dream-scape. If that description of their music confuses anyone, it's because I don't know of any other way to put it.

Amazing band of course. Loads of releases. The best is still Mal Esk Varii Aan; Taegnuub - Ishnji Angma ; Nji. Njiijn. Njiiijn.

I'm not sure I'm such a huge fan of Njiqahdda. 'Nji, Njiijn, Njiiin' is ok at times, often sounding like a weird mixture of Velvet Cacoon, Xasthur and Drudkh but I think it's definitely an album for a certain kind of mood for me. I didn't think much of 'Taegnuub Ishnji Angma' though I'm afraid.

For some reason I continually get this band mixed up with Lugubrum.

There was some fuzz in MS when Lucas wrote a review of one of their albums since it was totally new for most of the users. I'm rather surprised that you didn't read it, it was around six months ago though.

They are amazing. And the fact that they are not actually releasing singles, but EP/Albums every few months is pretty outstanding. One of me favorite bands.

No "every few months"...in five months of 2010 they have already released 3 full lenghts and 9 EPs, nothing under 20 minutes...

I discovered the band by reading Lucas' review on Nji. Njiijn. Njiiijn. Beside the very fucked up name they've got talent too. I liked that album, but I haven't check the rest of their discography yet. Needs time I guess. From this album, Aasklamatii Ligmett Aursag, is very impressive.
By the way, has anyone got any idea how the band's name is pronounced?

For me, I think the "J" is pronounced the way it is in Slavic languages, so I pronounce it as Nyi-kha-da.

Just heard 'Yrg Alms' album. This is amazing. The creativity shown by this band is really huge. It's never ending.

One of my favorite black metal band, definitely.

I just learned that from here on out, the band will be releasing their albums on digital format only. It's unfortunate because I wanted to buy a physical copy of Njimajikal Arts, but fortunately they'll still be making music.

Got me scared! thought they disbanded when this thread popped up to the front page. And their stuff is very hard to find online. Only the "famous" albums of theirs are easy, the rest are impossible.

They're still alive and well, but you're right about some of their albums being almost impossible to find.

"Serpents In The Sky," a new album from Njiqahdda, is out today . Upon a first listen, it is pretty amazing music that I could find myself listening to a fair bit in the near future. Every different musical facet of the band members is amazing, even though they are very different - a testament to the consistency of the compositional skills of the band. The intertwining of the music with its particular imagery and themes works incredibly well for Njiqahdda, something that cannot be said for quite a number of other bands.

Check it out at the eee recordings bandcamp page

P.S. My first post in here was rather harsh... but I have, since then, come to basically love all of Njiqahdda's output, as well as that of its sister bands. Some of the most genuine music around these days.

Agree with this 100%. The new album is very good. They won't stop experimenting, and doubt it'll be their only album this year. Fantastic stuff.
