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, & Codeine. Nadja combines soundscapes, electronics, & atmospheric vocals with snail-crawl, epic riffs & dirge-like percussion, tempering the cacophany with a certain ethereal melodicism such that the listener is enveloped in a sublimating wall of amorphous sound.
"Nadja’s unabashed love of atonal classical music beams (albeit dully) throughout, stressing lack-of-form over function, making something normally scary into something wholly frightening." - DECIBEL
"When Toronto electro-metal duo Nadja are at the height of their powers, the entire world feels as if it could collapse beneath the pressure of a manipulated guitar, a drum machine, a bass, and two bent voices." - Grayson Currin, PITCHFORK MEDIA
