Inkubus Sukkubus : The Dark Goddess - CD Inkubus Sukkubus : The Dark Goddess - CD  Ref: 20059 The latest Inkubus Sukkubus release, entitled the ‘Dark Goddess', is a celebration of the less benevolent aspects of female divinity and is dedicated to the Goddess Lilith. Not every single track embraces this theme; there is the anthemic ‘Karnayna Chorus', which is a celebration of the Horned God, but most of the songs on the album point towards the many aspects of the goddess at her more sinister.

One track, ‘Lose yourself at the Nymphaeum', was inspired by an actual event. Bassist in the band Bob Gardener was repairing a Cotswold stone wall for a woman in Gloucestershire, when he found hidden in the wall a statue of a young woman sleeping. Although the statue had been damaged by many years of rain and other weather, it was still extremely lifelike, as if the girl were merely asleep. As the area where the figure was found has a reputation for having a ‘strong supernatural presence', Bob was eager to leave the little stone lady where he found her, but the owner of the wall had no desire for him to do so and asked him to remove her. So Bob has kept the statue. The finding of the sleeping girl seemed to be a sign of sorts, especially in an area known both for having an eerie atmosphere and a long history dating back to Roman times. Although the sleeping girl may not date back as far as antiquity, the sentiment that was behind the hiding of the figure in the wall could well be. The wall in which the figure was discovered is located very close to the village of Chedworth which has a Nypmphaeum in the form of a water shrine located in the remains of the Roman villa there, a little further away is the once notorious Woodchester Park located in the village of Nympsfield, where an ancient Long Barrow is also to be found.

Inkubus Sukkubus are known for embracing both the dark and the light, which is one of the reasons why they are known for their depth and complexity by music fans, Pagans and academics alike, and the ‘Dark Goddess' album certainly has both darkness and light within it.

Throughout 2011 Inkubus Sukkubus will be concentrating on their live shows and developing their performance which, now where possible, contains a video backdrop. The year will also see the re-release of three of the band's albums ‘Supernature', ‘Heartbeat of the Earth' and ‘Away with the Faeries'.
