5 stars Nucleus Torn is an eclectic band that combines folk, ambient, avant-metal, and post-metal into a killer combination. "-" proves their chops for more atmospheric music, and then "Worms" immediately shows how great they are at an awesome take on metal, including wonderful lulls. The length of the latter two pieces allows for them to really explore their broad sound to its fullest, resulting in tracks that switch between beautiful and brutal by the tip of a hat. Anna Murphy's vocals are the cherry on top, fitting both moods perfectly and rounding the album out. In fact, come to think of it, "Worms" makes me think of the Battle of Kurukshetra; this album is like being on a desolate plain that has its eerie calm broken many a time by marching and battling armies. Excellent record, I have high hopes for their planned follow up.
