Nemus are a solo project from Germany that plays a very atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of his 2018 album "See-Mensch" which will be released on November 26th by Naturmacht Productions.
Water and nature sounds start off the album before adding in more of a heavier style while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody along with the music also utilizing a great amount of atmospheric sounding synths and the vocals bring in a depressive style of black metal screams.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also adding in a great amount of post metal elements and some tracks also add folk instruments and acoustic guitars onto the recording as well as some death metal growls also being used briefly.
Nemus plays a style of post black metal that is very atmospheric and different sounding while also having its aggressive moments, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and are a concept album based upon a water human being that evolved into a chimera and his story of self hatred, agony and at some point acceptance.
In my opinion Nemus are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal solos project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Die Tiefe" and "Nachts Im Teich". 8 out of 10.
