Biography

Nebra construct the sonic image of a nuclear-powered icebreaker: ear-bludgeoning walls of guitars, a pounding, percussive rhythm section creating massive groove, relentless musical precision and a perfect, spot-on production. Nebra is instrumental.

Nebra is a swiss powerhouse hailing from the rock city of Geneva, featuring ex- and current members of Knut, Mumakil and Nostromo. Their 5-song debut EP entitled “Sky Disk” was mastered at Cutting Room in Stockholm: 5 heavy yet somehow catchy tunes for fans of Craw, Keelhaul, Isis, Mastodon, Torche and the Melvins.

Initially founded by Philippe and Robert in Geneva (Switzerland), nebra takes shape in January 2006 when Jérôme and Samuel join the band. During the following months, nebra rapidly establish their own brand of massive , epic instrumental metal.

Nebra plays live for the first time in october 2006, opening for Mumakil at the packed Moloko bar in Geneva in front of a sweaty and enthusiastic audience. A few gigs in their hometown follow before the band records their 5-track “Sky Disk 1” demo at Jer�me’s “Terrier 5”-studio in January 2007. The demo gets uploaded to myspace and receives loads of positive comments.

In June 2007, drummer Sam is badly injured in a road accident, it is unclear if he will ever be able to play live again. Looking for a replacement never became an option for the other band members, as their bond with Sam is strong. The band is on hold for more than a year.
