Nangilima are a band that has been featured before in this zine with members from both Spain and Sweden and plays a blackened form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Dark Matter" which was released by Xtreem Music.
Dark sounding atmospheric synths start off the album and after the intro the music goes for more of a heavy and slow funeral doom metal sound along with some death metal growls and also keeping the atmosphere that was introduced on the intro along with a good amount of melody and there are also some black metal screams being added into certain sections of the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some melodic guitar leads that add more of a dark and depressive atmosphere to the bands musical style and all of the songs stick to a very slow, dark, heavy and melodic direction with no fast parts or blast beats to be heard anywhere on this recording while there is a brief use of spoken word parts on one of the tracks.
Nangilima plays a very slow, dark, heavy, melodic and atmospheric style of funeral doom on this album as well as keeping around some of the black metal influences of their early material to enhance the dark atmosphere, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Nangilima and if you are a fan of atmospheric funeral doom with black metal elements, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stain Of A Broken Life" and "The Dark Matter". 8 out of 10.
