“Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom” - Michael Ellner

On ‘Inverted World’, Somalgia present a psychedelic interpretation of a dystopian reality set in a world not unlike our own. The album covers an eclectic range of influences & genres from black metal, trip-hop and folk to progressive & psychedelic rock.

Conceptually, ‘Inverted World’ follows a journey of awakening in which the protagonist struggles to come to terms with the nature of reality, falls down endless conspiracy rabbit holes, battles addiction, consumerism & technology overload and ultimately understands what it means to be an outsider in a backwards world.

How deep does the rabbit hole go?

TC – Electric and acoustic guitars, vocals, lyrics, synths.
RS – Keyboards, guitars, vocals, drums.
Session vocals performed by: Kat Elizabeth
Mixed and produced by Ryan Stevenson
Mastered by Kerberos in The Crypt

-REVIEWS-

HEADBANGER REVIEWS - "Bounding from black metal to progressive regions of both metal and rock to folk to even trip-hop, “Inverted World” takes on so much stylistically in a successful manner that it is downright bewildering to experience"
headbangerreviews.wordpress.com/2021/12/16/somalgia-inverted-world/

GBHBL - "A mind-bending release, Somalgia are one of those indefinable bands, capable of challenging perceptions of what music should and could sound like"

THE PROGRESSIVE ASPECT -
"Bonkers. Somalgia may have begun as black metal, but they are so much more now, and who knows just where they will take their sound."

THE ELITE EXTREMOPHILE -
"The debut album from Somalgia (on Repose Records) might be a bit on the conspiratorial side, but the music is diverse, inventive, and all-around fantastic."

AVE NOCTUM -
"Stylistically there are tinges of black metal, large doses of classic prog, fresh commercial choruses, spooky touches, dark electronica and a lot of retro style keyboard work. “Inverted World” is highly theatrical, and almost music hall with elements of a West End musical at times, yet there’s space for lush, lofty and dreamy guitar work which raise and expand the unremittingly surreal atmosphere."
