  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

We are Nexus Imperium, an experimental, atmospheric black metal act from Athens, Greece.
The band was formed in 2005. Inspired by deep space and the unknown universe, begun to work on music based on traditional and modern black metal mixed with sci-fi vibes through synthesizers and special effects. Music that travels from Mayhem and Blut Aus Nord to Vangelis and Klaus Schulze.

Nexus Imperium's mission is to study and present the past, present and future of this vast universe we live in from when time began to which future plans may be for all lifeforms. Starting with this E.P music and lyrics narrate how it all started.

This is Nexus Imperium's very first official work. There was a demo back in 2007 composed by the only member and founder back then "Synapse" that never saw the light. Through Nexus Imperium's music one will experience the evolution of universe, space - time and humanity.
