Nox Aeternum are a solo project from Pennsylvania that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2015 ep "Incipiunt Oblivionem".
Dark sounding ambient synths start off the ep bringing in the atmosphere of a 70's horror movie soundtrack and after t he intro the music goes into a heavier musical direction along with soem melodic guitar leads which also leads up to more of a fast and raw black metal direction that also uses a great amount of blast beats.
Swedish style melodies can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with the fast riffs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and after awhile classical guitars are added into certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and both of the main tracks are very long and epic in length and are all instrumental and atmospheric sounds are added onto the last track along with some clean playing which also gives the music more of a progressive edge while some of the riffing also has an American style at times
Nox Aeternum plays a style of black metal that is very raw and melodic and owes a great amount to the Swedish style of the genre while being a little bit different and avoiding any vocals and song writing and the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Nox Aeternum are a very great sounding instrumental, raw and melodic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Drawn Through the Lungs Of The Aeons". 8 out of 10.
