Nangilima – The Dark Matter

Nangilima is a doom/death metal band from Malmö, Sweden. Members are; Emilio (Ov Mhurn): All Vocals. Nikolay - Guitars/Bass/Keys. Khalvst Ov Mhurn (Marahkain, Ov Mhurn): Keyboards and Drums. 

The Dark Matter album released on November 2014 through Xtreem Music. It consist of six songs. Rooted in doom which is evident from the opening song, dark and mostly mid-tempo on the drums. Deep and haunting keyboard compositions are a big part of the content. The Link of Reminiscence is a great song, the opening grabs my attention, reminds me of some of my favorite bands like Neurosis, Novembers Doom and some Paradise Lost as well. The track Éternel Sommeil (Outro) is a mind bender and worth spinning several times. The keyboard piece is captivating and melody easily stays with me. 

In terms of production, the drums are strong and dominating, the double kicks are thunderous. The guitars are heavy distorted and carry the rhythm well. Final thoughts, the somber, memorable and depressive melodies make this album worth investigating and the majority of doom/death listeners will find something that resonates with them within each track. ~Artemortifica
