NIHASA (GRE) "Brahamanda Xul Grimoire" CD


Nihasa is a new project of Acherontas (who is also behind the bands Acherontas and Stutthof) and Porphyrion (former singer of Kawir). Even though their thematology remains close to Acherontas, their sound is quite different. They have a more old school black metal approach and a less “occult” atmosphere. Except for the opening and closing instrumental tracks, there are 4 long songs in this album, all of them in the same style. Mid-tempo, atmospheric riffs, accompanied by a melodic layer of keyboards and the haunting vocals of Porphyrion, who once again did an excellent job, much different than the way he sang on Kawir. There is a very dark and depressive mood through the whole work, following the astral satanic journeys of their lyrics. The compositions are great and my only “doubt” is the two long instrumental tracks, that can’t reach the level of the rest of the album (unlike the impressive instrumentals on Stutthoff and Acherontas). Anyway, maybe this works in favor of the rest of the album… Acherontas and Porphyrion found an ideal balance between raw black metal and melodic elements in the songwriting and the outcome is “Brahamanda Xul Grimoire”. I believe though that production could be clearer at the parts where synths become more dominant, but that’s a detail, since their sound fits perfectly with their music.
