Jagath is a ritual/industrial ambient act from Perm, Russia.
We create our music at abandoned industrial locations — bottom of a moist underground sewer shaft and inside huge hollow oil tanks — without using digital synthesis.
We use simple, mostly hand-crafted instruments, found objects and our voices.
We do this to share our vision of decaying postindustrial age, to unleash the spirit of deep beyond-world and unveil life in the abyss.
"A firefly may inspire a man. Man takes a flint, flint carves sparks, sparks set fire to wood, a flame lights up. Flaring up more and more, a fire turns into a firestorm. Firestorm lives its own life." — Drunken Master
We came to huge abandoned oil tank in the midst of winter. It is cold out here, in Russia, so we have to do something so as not to freeze to death. We brought a pair of flamethrowers, huge djembe drum, shamanic tambourine, lots of percussion, a broken TV and made an attempt to survive. We recorded this album — our post-apocalyptic hymn — Agni.
It is cold here in Russia, everything remains frozen for decades. Life has almost stopped and nothing cannot be changed.
The material was recorded inside a huge oil tank from 2015 to 2018. I called the album Devalaya — Temple. Now the temple has begun to be scrapped into metal.

We gathered at our Temple, took a guitar, pedal and a portable amp to make something drony and unusual
