In the studio, NNRA is the brainchild of Louis Lambert (DDENT). On stage, he surrounds himself with various musicians and video projections created and performed live by Sébastien Mathieu. NNRA provide an intense, immersive experience that fuses post-metal, black metal and indus. The outfit previously shared the stage with Amenra (watch full set here), Furia, Au-Dessus and performed at Rock In Bourlon festival (watch full set here).
New album « NNRA INCARNE » illustrates an old Arab tale about incarnation. In the old days, there was no color, gardens were grey and nightingales were silent. Yet one day, a nightingale fell in love of a rose, and loved it so much that he wanted to embody it. He squeezed it so tightly to his chest, that the rose threw a thorn into his heart. His red blood spread and gave color to the roses, and thereafter to the world, while his piercing cries of pain gave nightingales the ability to sing.
It is a poem about love, the creation of life, when one loves something so much that one wants to embody it physically; in latin, in carne means ‘in the flesh’. No life, no color or music without devouring passion. Sebastien Mathieu (video/artwork) and Louis Lambert (music) were fascinated by this concept and decided to pay tribute to this poem, and more widely work on the concept of incarnation, illustrating it with this album, and the video that will be screened on stage.
