Nexus Imperium - Self Titled - Reviewed By OccultBlackMetalZine ! Check it out here at this link: http://occultblackmetalzine.blogspot.com/2021/08/nexus-imperiumself-titled2021-ep-review.html
Nexus Imperium are a duo from Greece that plays a very experimental and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2021 ep.
Atmospheric and sci-fi orientated synths start off the ep and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music at times. The recording also has its experimental moment while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the tracks more of a raw feeling.
Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one of the songs also adding in some clean playing as well as the vocals also being mostly grim sounding black metal screams.
The ep also adds in a couple of instrumentals along with all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them as well as some clean singing and spoken word parts also being utilized briefly, when guitar solos and leads are added on the closing song they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover the evolution of the universe, space - time and humanity themes.
In my opinion Nexus Imperium are a very great sounding experimental and atmospheric sounding black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thermal Perfection" and "Seeds". 8 out of 10. - OccultBlackMetalZine
