The Needle Drop

Nadja- Dagdrom

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

Nadja is a ambient doom metal duo who hail from Toronto, although, it began as solo project of Aidan Baker.

The duo has a startlingly full sound that can easily encompass an entire room with the heavy drones of the guitar and dramatic volume shifts. It creates an entrancing musical experience which is the clear marker of a job well done when it comes to a genre such as this. The heavier aspects combined with the ambient shoegaze elements creates a sound that I can only describe as horrible nightmarish fever dream, but in a good way. There are some extremely menacing sounds here that seem to just drone on forever in a lot of cases, again, that's a good thing in this scenario.
