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 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 Decay 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 Washing Rage throughout Phasing Currents The movement flows With lunacy Towards all life Affecting Everything To corrosions Of walls Toward the Helpless calls Far reaching Decay Set to sink us Down one day
2.
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
3.
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 Notus Boreas Zephyrus Eurus Kaikias Livas Skiron Apeliotes
4.
Strikes from above Sparking upon Igniting bursts Combustion To start a flame The light from dark Untamed Coming winds guide its path Forming large Infernal craft Living form Eternally Set its scope Freely Full blaze Awakening Outspreading Brightening Unrestrained To ruined towns Intense shine Burns down

about

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
