H.L. NETHERMOST'S melodic death metal reminds me on a mixture of old Paradise Lost and Windir. Somehow "old-fashioned", but nevertheless beautiful. The deep and raw growling brings some aggressive vibes into the overall melodic sound. A well balanced EP and a good starter! Only the individual character of the songs could be more pronounced. Favorite track: The untroubled kingdom of reason.

PeterDark Early Katatonia-influenced EP perhaps too repetitive, with main guitar looping most of the time over same melodies. But it can be a good point of entry to improve with wider variations in future releases. Favorite track: The untroubled kingdom of reason.

The name Nethermost refers to the lowest point of existence and is also the name of the melodic death-doom band hailing from south Texas. Nethermost's debut EP release ¨Alpha,¨ a tribute to nature and the four elements paints a deep and obscure timelessness while offering up powerful and intense melodies and an overall rich atmosphere soaked in ambience and melancholy. Mid-paced melodic doom metal with an emphasis on atmosphere, a thick bass sound and deep vocals conjure up an honest organic sound rooted in the mid-90's death-doom sound. Alpha, while providing an introduction to a new and promising doom band should also appeal to fans of established bands, Katatonia - circa Brave Murder Day, October Tide, and Daylight Dies

Track Name: Phasing Currents
The axis of flow
Aligned from above
Shifting plates
To cleanse the Earth
Across to seas
And deep in the ground
Filling the skies
In darkest clouds

To corrosions
Of walls
Toward the
Helpless calls
Far reaching
Set to sink us
Down one day

Opposing the flow
Bringing range of threats
To follow the streams
Where dreams are met
A struggle of force
Comes predefined
Tears through land
With cracks of time
Under the speed
A division is clear
A separate stream
Dense energy gear

Rage throughout
The movement flows
With lunacy
Towards all life

To corrosions
Of walls
Toward the
Helpless calls
Far reaching
Set to sink us
Down one day
Track Name: The untroubled kingdom of reason
The land
Where we lay
Is our founding
And workings

We endure
To stay
Just as long
Then standstill

Stand upon
On stones high away
Built strong
Massive structures
Rise above

Feel the sun
As rays light our way
Until Dawn
The Untroubled
Kingdom of Reason

The deep and dense
Picture displayed
The journey ends
As the plane remains

Our minds
With our eyes
Frame designs
Amongst Us

Our flesh
To the dirt
Share a part
To grow us
Track Name: Tower of the Winds
The Creation
To communicate wisdom
Built Upward
Where what lies beneath
The Unseen
In Motion we need
To gift life
Time's essence between

A structure of thrones
Where the winds passage meets
In soundness Bestowed
Eight deities withhold
From the storms of the south
The cold of the north

Unseen but felt
Roaring freely
In twisting sweeps
Objects dance with thee
The flows unite
Foretell prophecy
Through the octagon
Observed guardedly

Track Name: Dance of Burning Beasts
Strikes from above
Sparking upon

Igniting bursts

To start a flame

The light from dark

Coming winds
guide its path

Forming large
Infernal craft

Living form

Set its scope

Full blaze


To ruined towns

Intense shine
Burns down
