Nangilima are an international band that has been featured before in zine with members from Sweden, Bulgaria and Spain that h as been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened and atmospheric mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Shards Of Life" which was released by Xtreem Music.
Acoustic guitars start off the ep along with some keyboards a few seconds later that also bring in a touch of ambient and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the music which is also very heavily rooted in doom metal and the vocals are mostly death metal growls and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and black metal screams can also be heard at times while both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music brings in a lot of 90's influences from the doom/death genre while also mixing it in with a more modern and atmospheric style and when the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard and towards the end there is a brief use of operatic female vocals.
Nangilima creates another recording that remains true to the keyboard orientated style of doom/death metal from previous recordings while also mixing in a great amount of black metal influences, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sorrow, melancholy, nature and passion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Nangilima and if you are a fan of atmospheric and blackened death/doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Shards Of Loss". 8 out of 10.
