ERDVE releases new single ‘Neigti’ with amazing videoclip
ERDVE releases new single ‘Neigti’
They are here… Experimental Sludge outfit ERDVE releases their newest gem ‘Neigti’,which translates to ‘deny’.To give visual expressing to the song, the band created a music video for the single. As one can expect from this Lithuanian band, this video is -as well as their music-, intense, mesmerizingand uncompromising.
‘Neigti’ is released as a stand-alone single and can be viewed via the officialSeason of Mist YouTube channel HERE. The link may be freely spread throughout your channels.
ERDVE comments: ‘Neigti’ in Lithuanian means ”Deny”. The song and video is about denial as a collective mindset, where fundamental moral beliefs form the basis of a social identity. In this case, those beliefs cannot be challenged, otherwise the whole understanding of one’s existential identity is at stake. Facing the truth would mean the loss of that identity, therefore considered a threat by itself. This poses a great challenge and lack of judgement of current geopolitical problems and is one of the reasons why, for example, an unjust war, is not being seen for what it is by the majority of society of a country who started the war.”

Erdve – Neigti (official music video) 2023
ERDVE previously released the album ‘Savigaila’ July 23, 2021 via Season of Mist and can be heard in full HERE. The artwork and further album details can be viewed below.
Crushing insanity drips atmospherically out of every crack on ‘Savigaila’, experimenting with elements from hardcore, sludge, and black metal.
When ERDVE formed in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius in 2016, the band had a clear aesthetic vision of creating a unique heavy sound that experimented with elements from hardcore, sludge, and black metal – yet was not bound by any unwritten “rules” surrounding those genres. ERDVE’s members had already been active in their local scene and performed in various acts such as NYKSTA, SRAIGĖS EFEKTAS, and SPIRALE. A self-made tape version of their debut made its rounds in underground circles and the Lithuanians received the rare honour of being picked straight out of the dreaded demo pile by virtue of their musical strength and compelling quality.
The core ideas behind ERDVE are translated into lyrics, visuals, and sound by in-depth reflection on concepts such as domestic violence, utmost disgusting behaviour, crimes against humanity, and extremism. Their debut album ‘Vaitojimas’, released in 2018 by Season of Mist, delivered exactely that!
The new offering ‘Savigaila’, which translates as “self-pity”, revolves around overcoming the numbness within the great challenges of unsettling reality, and accepting them as they are. Regret, envy, self-regard, love, care and togetherness. From completely understandable to the most unreasonable sense. This idea is turned into melodies, rhythm, and sound by ERDVE on the bands upcoming sophomore album.
But make no mistake, ERDVE successfully transformed these melodies into a new unnerving experience on how THEY perceive life and with ‘Savigaila’, you may find that enjoying life, can be entirely implausible…
