Nolentia/May The Hand That Holds The Match That Will Set The On Fire Be Blessed Above All/Kaotoxin/2013 CD Review


  Nolentia  are  a  band  from  France  that  combines  grind,  sludge,  crust,  doom,  hardcore  and  noise  together  and  this  is  a  review  of t heir  2013  album  "May  The  Hand  That  Holds  The  Match  That  Will  Set  This  World  On  Fire  Be  Blessed  Above  All"  which  was  released  by  Kaotoxin.

  Drums range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  brutal  sounding  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  noise,  crust,  grind,  harcore,  sludge  and  doom  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  grindcore  growls  to  high  pitched  noisecore  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  everyday  themes,  as  for t he  production  it  has  a very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Nolentia  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of   noise,  crust,  grind,  hardcore,  sludge  and  doom  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of t his  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out t his  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "A  Lament  For  The  Roadkill"  "On  This  Side  Of  he  Grave"  "The  Ticking  Of  The  Clock"  and  "Better".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
