NYC “gothametal’” band NEFARIANT, have released their new song “Beg” as well as the music video for the song, the first single from their forthcoming EP Noct – scheduled for release on February 9, 2024. NEFARIANT has turned to unexpected instrumentation by adopting a no guitar, piano-led sound that is blatantly heavy. The quartet is Jason Lekberg, vocalist; Paul Cibrano, pianist; Daniel Martinez, bassist; Andrew Maciejewski, drummer. The band creates what they term “brutal elegance”, a new expression of metal music that works without a guitar. The band’s defining feature is an elemental accord between word and music that showcases their embrace of contradiction in sound, lyrics, and visual presence. It also points to the complexity of each composition – not always technically – but structurally: clean vocals and growls in antiphonal dialogue; piano and/or bass figures where the common expectation would be guitar licks. “Beg” is available for streaming/downloading here: https://lnk.to/Nefariant and the music video is now live on Metal Injection and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/FJRydUdJJ-E.

The band again worked with producer Ulrich Wild (Deftones, Pantera, Static-X) and mastering engineer Paul Logus (Corey Taylor, Anthrax). Over a series of trips from their home in NYC to Ulrich’s LA studio ‘The Wilderness’ they painstakingly developed this new sound. They now begin a process of releasing one song per month for the coming seven months, beginning with “Beg.”

Noct Tracklist:

Beg
On War
Legend

NEFARIANT is also announcing a show supporting to Somnuri (MNRK Heavy) and Loss Becomes at Union Pool in Brooklyn on August 26th.  Tickets can be purchased at https://tix.to/Somnuri_826.

Nefariant means to unapologetically be yourself, to see failure as an opportunity, to follow your
own path regardless of public opinion. Those who are Nefariant get kicked in the teeth and
smile back. It’s knowing that you are not owed anything, and nothing can stop you. Nefariant is
brutal elegance. Nefariant is educated rebellion. Nefariant is bad in the best way.
What they’re staying:
“NEFARIANT blends the elegance and brutality of metal in a way I haven’t experienced since
TYPE O NEGATIVE. There’s an unmatched passion and sophistication to their art and I’m
excited to see what they continue to create” – Frankie Nasso (Mudvayne, Nothing More)
“It’s always rewarding to work with an exciting new band who pushes past the expected and
explores new horizons. I enjoyed mixing this EP.” – Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Deftones)
“The thing I enjoyed most about Nefariant is how conscious they are of doing something
different and pushing themselves. They definitely didn’t take the easy way out with the
orchestrations and sonics of the band and it was a blast being in the studio.” – Ryan Kelly (Orbs,
Abigail Williams)
