Nangilima - The Dark Matter Award winner

The Dark Matter
by Marcos “Big Daddy” Garcia at 21 December 2014, 8:57 PM

Since the 90’s, the mix between a heavy and oppressive sound in BLACK SABBATH way with Death Metal brutal grasp is a very known formula, used before by many, and which gave to Metal some classics as “Serenades”, “Gothic”, “Shades of God”, “Turn Loose the Swan” and many others. But after 20 years, Doom Death Metal still seduces many people, and good bands from the style rises in the entire world, and NANGILIMA, a band formed by three guys from different countries, is a good name from the style, as their first album, “The Dark Matter”, shows.

The band has a difference between the ancients ones from the style: their music is heavy and abrasive (as Doom Death Metal must be, of course), but the elegance and melancholy are presented in a form by the keyboards to so commonly used on the style. And the mix of extreme guttural vocals (but clean ones appear sometimes), bitter guitar riffs, bass and drums forming a heavy rhythmic kitchen, and the keyboards detailed above is very good to our ears.

Nikolay Velev did the mixing and mastering, and the sound flows abrasive and heavy, with enough quality to understand the instruments apart. And to their musical work, it’s a demand.

The band members focused their energies in creating very long songs with very good musical arragements, in the tradition of some bands from the so called Funeral Doom Death Metal, being two of them instrumental ones (“Chemin vers le néant” and “Éternel sommeil”), and the other four are songs full of variations and great moments (“Stain of a Broken Life”, “Crimson Shroud”, “The Link of Reminiscence”, and “The Dark Matter”), all of them elegant and oppressive, showing a very good band that deserves an opportunity. So give it to them, dear nephews and nieces, for you won’t complain of that.

Very good work, and it’s impossible to not love it.
