Greek atmospheric black metal project Nexus Imperium has been around for sixteen years before finally releasing this dark, dissonant and strangely hypnotic little EP this summer. There's some Darkspace influence, but the resulting sound has a stately majesty all of its own overlaying the space-themed chaos raging through most of the tracks.

Singularity is atmosphere only: A cosmic hum right before the Big Bang starts on Cosmic Disturbance, which even as it fades in gives a hint of the fury to come through most of the album. A ringing lead plays short melodies, as intriguing as they are disquieting. Meanwhile, the voice of Giorgos Kondilis slowly groans out the blurry lyrics in his clean vocals, switching now and then to a deeper growl as the full range of guitars kick back in.

On Seeds, the album reaches its proper crescendo. The leads are more ominous than ever before, the riffing builds upon itself in an intricate maze, and then the dark vision fades away at last. For all its shortness, the self-titled EP delivers a great atmosphere and has the feel of a galaxy-sized album. -

Release Date: June 17, 2021

FFO: Watain, Immortal, Rotting Christ

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.
