2 stars Umur has already described the background for this EP and I have nothing to add there (ie he has stolen my thunder). So let's go straight to the music.

This EP contains of two pretty long death metal compositions. They both has strong Morbid Angel flavours. The opening riffs and most of Possess The Priest is a straight Morbid Angel rip off, the Altars Of Madness era. The keyboards kicks in and an schism between Nocturnus and Morbid Angel opens up. But the schism is not that wide, though. Add a small dosage of Pestilence from the Testimony of the Ancients era too and you get this song. The same also goes for the second song Mummified.

Sadly, the quality is not impressive at all. Both songs are going nowhere and it is almost a crime to release this EP under the Nocturnus name. This is not the most hopeless stuff I have ever heard, but it is still pretty lame stuff. Forget this EP and stick to both The Key and Threshold. They are miles better than this EP.

2 stars (0.5 added star 'cause I like Morbid Angel)
