4 stars Band's profile on the PA forced me to give this Switzerland project a chance, i decided to do that from few reasons: band classification as a experimental metal( I'm a great fan), many instruments used, and fact that album has been released by Phropecy Productions (Alcest, Dark Suns, Empyrium). Frankly, according to musician and multi instrumentalist as a leader, I was expecting music in Kayo Dot vein, I was wrong... But in very positive way. There are many folk and gothic influences, Nihil isn't 100% progressive album overall, but succeed to charm me. There are only two song that fit perfectly to experimental metal category, its a Peregrina Sublime and Summer Bled, other songs are close to progressive folk/folk rock so album is rather balanced on field between heavy and mellow moments. I've discovered a good mean of word "disappointment", as the band wasn't exactly what i looking for, i found something comparable good. Very recommended for fans of folk/metal music, and people who admire other Prophecy Studio releases/bands, that was mentioned below. Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection,
