“The video was taken from an old videotape found in an abandoned building of unknown authorship. The song was written under the influence of what was seen on the film; it’s about the dark sides of our personalities, about the attempt to acknowledge and accept our Shadow. It’s also a manifesto of misanthropy, a hatred for humanity, which sometimes appears to be a mistake of nature.”
»Stuma«, a five-track journey meticulously crafted by the talented minds behind Azimut. With a runtime of 45 minutes, this album is a sonic tapestry woven from the threads of post-metal, sludge, and black metal, delivering an experience that defies convention and elevates the senses.

»Stuma« isn’t just an album – it’s a transformative journey. The themes of change, decay, and the acceptance of reality are intricately woven into every note, resonating with the listener’s own experiences and emotions. Azimut’s unique blend of influences, ranging from the melancholic to the aggressive, ensures an immersive experience that leaves an indelible mark.
