Press-kit: The Nag Hammadi scriptures - also known as the Nag Hammadi library - are a collection of early Christian texts that are mainly attributable to the Gnosis and were never integrated in official versions of the bible. They were found by local farmers near the small Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in December of 1945. Most of these writings were then not known at all or only available in fragments. They include the Gospel of Thomas in particular.

The Nag Hammadi scriptures probably came from a period between the 1st and 4th centuries. Most of these scriptures are written primarily from the perspective of Gnostic Christians. In his introduction to The Nag Hammadi Library in English, scholar James Robinson suggests that these codices may have belonged to a nearby Pachomian monastery and were buried after Saint Athanasius condemned the use of non-canonical books in his Festal Letter of 367 A.D. The discovery of these texts significantly influenced knowledge of early Christianity and Gnosticism.

In 2020 the German ritual ambient bands Nam-Khar and Vortex joined forces to draw inspiration from the Nag Hammadi scriptures and their spiritual and cultural context. They fused their distinctive sounds to create a careful interpretation of the source texts from a pan-religious and spiritual perspective, resulting in hypnotic soundscapes and rhythm-pattern.

The idea of this album concept is to keep up the spirit of ancient and mostly forgotten paths of wisdom to a contemporary audience. It is dedicated to the spiritual seeker.
