Ophiuchus/Nihilistic Cosmic Concept/2010 CD Review


  Ophiuculus  where  a  1  man  band  from  the  Netherlands  that  played  a  hybrid  of  occult  black  metal,  noise,  avant  garde  and  gabber  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2010  album  "Nihilistic  Cosmic  Concept"  which  was  originally  recorded  in  1998.

  Drum  programming  ranges  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  beats,  while  the  sound  effects,  synths,  and  programming  bring  elements  of  noise,  experimental,  classical,  noise,  gabber  and  avant  garde  to  the  recording, as  for  the  rhythm  guitars  they  are  very  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  riffs   along  with  a  brief  use  of  noisy  and  melodic  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  spoken  word  samples  mixed  in  with  some  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  deep  demonic  growls,  while  the  song  themes  death,  occultism  and  violent  concepts,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion   Ophiuculus  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  occult  black  metal,  noise,  avant  garde  and  gabber  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Deathrape  Therapy"  "Filthy  Black  Souled"  "Nihilistic  Cosmic  Concept"  and  "Nightmare  Existence  Forever".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
