Ten years have passed since the release of Nuclearhammer’s last album, with the members more or less contributing to a variety of other projects (namely Necropolissebeht, Nirriti, Azothyst, etc.).
Fast forward to 2023, and Nuclearhammer unleash a surprise attack with this twenty-six minute beast called ‘Xaos Tenawas – Demo MMXXIII’, which features two lengthy compositions of hateful, bestial Death/Black metal that is characteristic of their sound. The guitars form an extremely grim backdrop, backed by vengeful vocals and hard-hitting drums that viciously pound the listener into submission as the suffocating darkness grips you tighter and tighter. It is the band’s ability to create an oppressive atmosphere full of nightmarish soundscapes that leaves a feeling of disorientation and dread within the listener. If you liked ‘Serpentine Hermetic Lucifer’, then you will undoubtedly love this demo as well, as it more or less follows the same sadistic formula.
The overlords of Canadian Black/Death filth are back to give us a taste of the future. For fans of Antediluvian, Impetuous Ritual, and Teitanblood.
