Nadja`s fourteen-minute-long song "Sandskin," from Skin Turns To Glass, released earlier this year by The End Records (originally released as a limited CD-R run by Belgium`s Nothingness Records), is available for download for free from Amazon.com

Nadja is a duo of Aidan Baker (guitars/vocals/piano/woodwinds/drums) and Leah Buckareff (bass/vocals) currently based in Toronto, Canada. Nadja originally began in 2003 as a solo project for Baker to explore the heavier/noisier side of his experimental/ambient guitar-based music. In 2005 Buckareff joined in order to make the project more than just a studio endeavour and allow Nadja to perform live.

Nadja creates music that has been variously described as drone metal, ambient doom, and shoegazer, incorporating influences from such diverse artists as Swans, Godflesh, My Bloody Valentine, and B>Codeine. Nadja combines soundscapes, electronics, and atmospheric vocals with snail-crawl, epic riffs and dirge-like percussion, tempering the cacophany with a certain ethereal melodicism such that the listener is enveloped in a sublimating wall of amorphous sound.

After several limited edition cdr releases, Nadja released their first official album, Truth Becomes Death, on Montreal`s Alien8 Recordings in 2005. They have since released material on Conspiracy Records, Profound Lore Records, and Archive Records, and have material out via The End Records and Crucial Blast Records.
