Nhialic - Medz Yeghern - Reviewed By FULL METAL MAYHEM ! Check it out here at this link: https://fullmetalmayhem.wordpress.com/2022/02/13/nhialic-mit-medz-yegherm/
How did I get to know the band: In my e-mail inbox there was once again an e-mail from Metal Devastation Radio and due to the unusual name and the title as Black Metal the five songs immediately came into my Dropbox and now I share my impressions with you.
How do I find the disc: The songs are usually kept in the lower mid-tempo, sometimes even with piano support. But there are always outbursts of anger, to increase the pace and the hardness tremendously. Every now and then it even gets melodic. The vocals are not bad, usually a hoarse whisper, but again and again it becomes an angry scream.
Absolutely recommended is the title track MEDZ YEGHERM. Here everything comes together, the quiet, melodic parts, as well as the anger and hatred. I also really like PAINTING REVENGE.
Conclusion: Really good for a debut. I'm looking forward to more of the two. Here I make a recommendation who want to get to know Black Metal from other countries, as always listen to the same five or six European ones here: - FULL METAL MAYHEM
