Originally formed in 1997, Numen is an extreme music band coming from the Basque Country. They plays a fast black metal with some influences of the folk and traditional music of their land. All lyrics are written in Euskera, their mother tongue, and they talk about old traditions, legends and mythology, always with a strong feeling against Christianity. Melodic and percussive, NUMEN is the Basques answer to the old Norwegians Satyricon.
By late 1999, the band recorded the first studio MCD « Haize sorginduen intziriak » with 5 Black Metal tracks. In 2001 Numen released their first full lenght CD « Galdutako itxaropenaren eresia », a more extreme recording based on Basque legends and history, as well as its dark and magic mythology.
In the beginning of 2003 « …jarrai beza kondairak » was released, a MCD which compiled 4 new tracks , and the previously sold out MCD « Haize sorginduen intziriak » as bonus. May 2004, the band returned with « Basoaren semeak » , an extreme piece of basque black metal.
Already in 2007, celebrating its 10th anniversary, Numen returns once again with the release of its third full-length called « Numen”. Fast old school BM from the basque woods, following the path of the ancient cult without compromise. The BASQUE CULT BLACK METAL was Born!
