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.
