Nekyia Orchestra are a band from Germany that plays a progressive form of post/sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Magnum Chaos".
A distorted sound starts off the album and after the intro the music gets heavier along with a good mixture of growls and screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and elements of post metal can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the music speeds up at times.
Melodies can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when solos and leads are very dark and melodic and during some of the faster sections a small amount of blast beats can be heard and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing.
Nekyia Orchestra plays a post style of sludge metal that also mixes in elements of death meta; to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released while the lyrics cover Greek Mythology.
In my opinion Nekyia Orchestra are a very great sounding post sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Odyssey" "Medusa" and "Alkestis". 8 out of 10.
