Nigress is a Black Metal project that was formed in the Winter of 2005 by Strevahn and Ominiun. Nigress combine Old-School Black Metal and Traditional Heavy Metal influences into a framework of dark and chaotic atmospheres.
The first Nigress recordings were the product of a cider-fuelled weekend of improvisational Black Metal jamming and are a true testament to how filthy and Necro Black Metal can really become. These songs echoed a kind of pure darkness and filth that few other bands could hope to achieve. Since then, Nigress has evolved into a full-project for which the two founding members are constantly writing new music.
In it's core form, Nigress will only ever exist as two members and so regular live events are not really possible but plans are being made for possible shows in the forthcoming summer with other local extreme metal bands. Keep an eye on our myspace page (www.myspace.com/cultsofdeath) for updates

Several releases are planned for Nigress in 2006, the first proper release being the debut Nigress full-length album (for which we are looking for labels to release and/or provide us with a distribution deal). After this release, several EPs are planned (most of the material for these has already been written) including a split EP with fellow Kent-based Black Metallers Morkem.
