This captivating musical creation from Ner\Ogris demonstrates just how much creativity and skill lies within the duo.

“Am The Shadow – I Am The Light” is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable and inviting debut albums out there, and it will be exciting to see what else they can produce in the future.


NER\OGRIS debut album "I Am the Shadow - I Am the Light" opens with a ceremony of opposites: relentlessly driving beats push and pump, while dark musical textures fill the void and a catchy melody forms the strings that hold this electronic cosmos together. This exceptional newcomer duo thrives on contrasts and opposites. The sonic exchange between the gravity centres of loud and quiet, light and dark, melodious sounds and dissonant noise invites comparison with classic electronics such as X MARKS THE PEDWALK, PARACONT, and NUMB among others. There is even a tongue-in-cheek touch of JAN HAMMER. All of these elements as well as contemporary ingredients create a highly dynamic album. "I Am the Shadow - I Am the Light" elegantly combines analog warmth and perfected sound with dark digital precision.

NER\OGRIS' grew out of an instrumental project that keyboard player and electronic musician Kain conceived, who is well known among old school fans for his work with dark wave, EMB, industrial, and splatter house outfit LES BERRTAS. When singer Tinoc from Saxonian EBM insider-hot-news AMNISTIA was asked for a small vocal contribution, he spontaneously delivered vocals and lyrics for each of those tracks in record time. This convinced Kain to turn his project into a duo and to produce a complete album. Thus NER\OGRIS were born and ready to conquer planet electro. With "I Am the Shadow - I Am the Light", NER\OGRIS deliver an impressive debut album that delivers tasty new food for friends of dark electronic sounds from every generation. Blast it loud!

Das NER\OGRIS-Debütalbum "I Am the Shadow - I Am the Light" beginnt mit einer Zeremonie der Gegensätze: unerbittlich fahrende Beats drücken und pumpen, während dunkle musikalische Texturen die Leere füllen und eine eingängige Melodie die Saiten bildet, die diesen elektronischen Kosmos zusammenhalten. Dieses außergewöhnliche Newcomer-Duo lebt von Kontrasten und Gegensätzen. Der klangliche Austausch zwischen den Schwerpunkten von laut und leise, hell und dunkel, melodischen Klängen und dissonanten Geräuschen lädt zum Vergleich mit klassischer Elektronik wie X MARKS THE PEDWALK, PARACONT und NUMB unter anderem ein. Es gibt sogar einen augenzwinkernen Hauch von JAN HAMMER. All diese Elemente sowie zeitgenössische Zutaten schaffen ein hochdynamisches Album. "I Am the Shadow - I Am the Light" kombiniert elegant analoge Wärme und perfektionierten Klang mit dunkler digitaler Präzision.

NER\OGRIS' entstand aus einem Instrumentalprojekt, das der Keyboarder und Elektronikmusiker Kain konzipierte, der unter Old-School-Fans für seine Arbeit mit Dark Wave-, EMB-, Industrial- und Splatter-House-Outfit LES BERRTAS bekannt ist. Als der Sänger Tinoc von der sächsischen EBM-Insider-Hot-News AMNISTIA um einen kleinen Gesangsbeitrag gebeten wurde, lieferte er spontan Gesang und Texte für jeden dieser Tracks in Rekordzeit. Dies überzeugte Kain, sein Projekt in ein Duo zu verwandeln und ein komplettes Album zu produzieren. So wurden NER\OGRIS geboren und bereit, den Planeten Elektro zu erobern. Mit "I Am the Shadow - I Am the Light" liefert NER\OGRIS ein beeindruckendes Debütalbum, das leckeres neues Essen für Freunde von dunklen elektronischen Klängen aus jeder Generation liefert. Sprengen Sie es laut!
