Abberation Nexus are a 1 man band from Australia that plays a very symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released ep "Where Is Your God? - Deconstructing God & Ashes".
"God & Ashes (Dead In Any Fucking Language)" begins with some nature sounds and symphonic keyboards before the guitar riffs and programmed drums start kicking in which also leads up to some black metal screams and after a couple of minutes the music gets alot faster and adds in blast beats before returning to a more mid paced sound along with a brief use of spoken word parts which leads up to the song switching back and forth between slow and mid paced parts as well as adding in some melody into t he guitar riffing.
"Gods & Ashes (Sans Orchestra)" is the same song as the last song but without the orchestra elements and vocals and the song is all instrumental.
"Gods & Ashes - orchestral" as a classical version of the song done with all keyboards, synths and orchestra.
Song lyrics cover anti christian and blasphemous themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound for being a self released recording while the bass guitars are mixed down low in the mix.
In my opinion Abberation Nexus are a very great sounding symphonic black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED>
