NEPHRAN-KA

The Fall Of Omnius

(Kaotoxin)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 6.5

Ha, okay, I guess someone was bound to use that as their name sooner or later, given that NILE have now been around long enough to be influencing a generation of young technical death metallers. Here, France's NEPHRAN-KA (hmm, nope, never going to get used to that) steer away from the ultra-produced soulless death metal fest that is expected from a band once removed from NILE (who are mighty, but have had their musical soul over-produced a couple times in the past) and instead deliver an intense and technical death metal attack with a refreshingly raw production sound. So, early/demo-quality Nile, it's an easy comparison, but that's what we're dealing with here. They've got the riffing (see frantic opener 'Butlerian Djihad' or slower crawl 'Feydakins Storm', both of which recall Colonel Sanders at his finest), they've got the blasting, they've got the sense of drama, they've got the technical skills (see the absurdly titled 'Legend Of Selim (Pt 2: The Return Of The Worm Rider)' for a good audio workout). They just need to stop worshiping their idols so much and step out of those huge shadows to create something with their own stamp on it; they're certainly capable of it, as dissonant closer 'To The Golden Path' hints at.
