Breag Naofa (Old Irish Gaelic name pronounced Bray-G Nay-Fuh) which simply means “holy lie”, was formed of a core of six members who’s socio/political ideas all differ slightly. The common thread throughout Breag Naofa’s ideology is that religion still poisons every aspect of the human experience. Set lyrically in a narrative style, Breag Naofa uses both lyrics and their music as a vehicle to convey this mutual feeling of disgust, despair, and disillusionment with the effects that belief and reliance in the “supernatural” has had upon human existence from past to present.
On their debut self titled LP, Breag Naofa brings on a sound that is of the slow, crushing, heavy repetitive nature while adding layers of ambience to almost give you the feeling of being “lost” along with them in the music. Breag Naofa will surprise you with heavy crushing riffs that start out like a slow locomotive to full force driving “d-beat” style riffs and rhythms. Creating enough anxiety to then calmly bring you back down into yet another ambient wave of music that continues to still hit hard while at the same time hypnotize. Following in the footsteps of other primogenitor artists such as CULT OF LUNA, FALL OF EFRAFA and ISIS, Breag Naofa want to further extend the boundaries that their music can take them and evolve with the music and the message.
