Nefandus are from Sweden and ply their Black Metal trade with passion and gusto.
Black Metal gone stoner doom? Not quite, although second track Temptress of Thantifaxath makes a damn good case for it. At least for the first part of the song and then it changes into a galloping NWOBHM-style riff followed by the stoner riffing once more with a nice solo on top. And this is only one of the four top-notch songs on here.
The remaining songs are more traditional than this one, but no less special for it. The riffs speak for themselves, and the band makes full use of them.
Favourite Track: Temptress of Thantifaxath. Variety is great especially when done well.
At less than 20 minutes this EP simply whets the appetite and leaves the listener wanting more. But ’tis better to have tasted the fruits than to never have known…
