  Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Rastafari movement
The name Nyabinghi comes from an East African movement from the 1850s to the 1950s that was led by women who militarily opposed European imperialism.
This form of nyabinghi was centered around Muhumusa, a healing woman from Uganda who organized resistance against German colonialists.
In Jamaica, the concepts of Nyabinghi were appropriated for similar anti-colonial efforts, and it is often danced to invoke the power of Jah against an oppressor.

 Music Ravings: Pelican, Thee Plague Of Gentlemen - Shrikes Time Tomblog
Another really cool and extremely heavy band I want to mention is Thee Plague of Gentlemen, who are a Belgian doom metal band.
I had the opportunity to meet the vocalist/guitarist Steve, on a trip to the Nyabinghi Club, Ohio (back then) based festival called Stoner Hands Of Doom, who was a cool cat.
A huge records collector as myself, maybe a bit more on the metal side compared, well okay, a lot more, and a regular walking metal encyclopedia in his own right.
