The Fall Of Omnius - Lars Bjørn - 4 stars

The Fall Of Omnius

The Fall Of Omnius
(Kaotoxin Records - 2013)

One thing is to get inspiration from the famous book Dune by Frank Herbert, to focus on the events from the sand with Shai-Hulud sand worms etc., but to get it into decent music is quite another task. I can not see Nephren-Ka succeed very well with their monotone and unstructured death metal. Besides a poor studio quality, the songs seems to go into the same oven all of them without stepping out and present something new and interesting. The French band who has a demo and a EP to their name makes a confusing debut with a 9 song full length album that will not stick into the brain for very long. Standard tempo except from the opener Butlerian Djihad that has more speed and nerve in it.

4 stars

Lars Bjørn
