Nagaarum are a solo project from Hungary that plays a mixture of post black metal, doom, dark ambient and experimental and this is a review of his 2017 album "Homo Maleficus" which was released as a joint effort by Grimm Distribution and NGC Productions..
Post rock style melodic guitar leads and experimental sounds start off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later and the bass guitars also sound very powerful along with a few leads and after awhile heavy guitar riffing is added onto the recording along with some grim black metal s creams.
A great amount of doom metal elements can be heard in the guitar riffing along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and spoken word parts can also be heard at times along with a small amount of clean singing and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Clean guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording and during the faster sections of the songs the riffs utilize a decent amount of tremolo picking which also gives the music a more raw black metal feeling while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one track also brings in acoustic guitars and ethnic music elements as well as introducing traces of ambient into certain sections of the recording while a later song also adds in a more depressive edge to the vocals.
Nagaarum plays a musical style that takes black metal, doom and post metal a nd mixes it with some experimental and ambient elements to create something original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science, space and nature themes.
In my opinion Nagaarum are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, doom, post metal, experimental and d ark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vassal Nevelt" and "Kolantar". 8 out of 10.
