NICHT - PART 1: CATALEPSY SINKS
LUGGA MUSIC PRODUCTIONS
Metal To Infinity
is a band from France and the sinister intro makes me focused on this one.
I’ve told several times before France has never been an important country in
Metal and I doubt this will ever chance. For some reason most bands just don’t
have the luck – more specific the support – a band needs to grow to a higher
level. And don’t tell me France have never contained good Metal bands.
this style, let’s call it Gothic / Doom Metal, France has for sure no
tradition. But these guys did a pretty good job and it’s clear the ideas are
good, the performances satisfying. Not every vocal lines pleases me and at some
points I have the feeling they’re not just pure enough, not really false but
anyway not good enough.
repeat that Nicht (in my language a “niece” or even “gay”) has plenty of
good ideas and this CD is ultra atmospheric, especially because of the samples
in and between the songs, because of the used angelic voices in the background.
“Room 19” is on this specific point fantastic, it feels
like I am making part of a Horror movie. Unfortunately with the music I
don’t really stay in that particular mood…..
The tracks breathe pure darkness and I’m sure that fans of bands like
Katatonia and even Paradise Lost can be satisfied by it although Nicht never
reaches the same level of these influencing bands. Give them a shot at http://www.myspace.com/nichtmusic.
