I like it when evil roars. When he makes himself known very loudly and does not look shy like a small child in shame, punished for trying to make his own opinion. A great roaring revolt of evil was the Nordic black metal whips. I will leave out the fact that in terms of worldly fame, even black metal has gotten somewhat out of control, but the legacy of underground traditions is still alive. It burns like a hidden fire underground and spreads uncontrollably. Then the glory of the loathing of hell can begin to flow from the earth anywhere. In the case of NHIALIC, even in several places at once, as it is an international affair. Although NHIALIC music honors Nordic traditions and their evil oscillates along the lines of the pentagram from Mayhem to Immortal, Gorgoroth and others, their songs sound a little different. It will probably be because they are not northerners, but rather southerners and also from countries where black metal is not exactly the bread of the day. In addition, he also introduces the mystery of the occult into his work, so NHIALIC does not look as if they are tearing up obedient sheep of God, but rather tearing a bread crust. But I would not underestimate it, because bread is supposedly a gift from God. Blasphemy can be done in different ways. The only thing I reproach this album is the plastic sound of the drums. - Hard Music Base
