Known for their crushing trilogy on Monumentum / Hydra Head Records, Nihill return with “Woestenij”. The waste land these exclusive tracks linger on are framed in “Fantoom” and “Eidolon”, those that dwell between the worlds, and so this tape dwells amongst the ruins the trilogy left behind.
“Fantoom” touches upon the words of old, the chants of the forgotten and revered, the slow, dragging rhythms drag the lonely, eerie, guitar line through the voids of lost realms and discarded images. “Eidolon” is a goodbye, a farewell to father and self, the quavering screams of the crowd can be heard in the chaotic squeals and distortion surrounding the looming threat of the gallow's fall.
This recording is a farewell, a haunting, a promise.
