Nihill - Krach [Monumentum Records - 2007]

Nihill’s debut album mixes together Death Spell Omega like occultic blacked riff craft with more stretched dark ambient, horrific soundtrack elements and slight doom edges, all topped off with grim theatrical and often downright chilling vocal performances.

The album for the most part focus on atmosphere above brutality, though there are some great riff batterings here, more often than not it dwells in unfolding grim occutic air- with layered backwards vocals,ect, & Dark ambient dramatics, clouds of grim guitar hazes. For most of the albums running time they seem to have the elements of surprise, atmosphere and evil just right, with only the last few tracks seem to rather out stay there welcome, with the very last track been just  been a long black guitar feedback haze that really goes nowhere. On the whole this is an impressing opening dark ritual with enough original and distinctive elements to make them stand out from the seeming thriving post-black metal scene of late.

Apparently this is the first of a trilogy of albums (sounds familiar, I know!) so it will interesting to see where the next black chapter will lead them, as their certainly is some real black talent on display here.
