Temple Of Nihil are a duo from Russia that plays a very aggressive form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Soul Extremist" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination and Narcoleptica Productions.
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the ep along with some grim yet high pitched black metal screams a few seconds as well as a few demonic growls and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies and all of the musical instruments all have a very powerful sound to them.
Most of the tracks are long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with the tracks also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the tremolo picking in the faster sections of the songs gives the music more of a raw feeling and all of the songs stick to a very heavy and aggressive musical direction.
Temple Of Nihil plays a style of occult black metal that is very heavy, fast and aggressive sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Darkness and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Temple Of Nihil are a very great sounding heavy and aggressive occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Devilution" and "Iblis". 8 out of 10.
