It’s forced listeners to get the most out of this one album, and left Nespithe a truly ‘one-of-a-kind’ experience. Valid complaints to be sure, but they seem so insignificant here. I've been piddling around with a blank copy of this review for a long while, unable to really write down anything because reviewing something so fucking good is so damn hard. Antti Boman provides the perfect vocal accompaniment to the madness, burping forth his lines like a dying elder god that got sick from gorging on all the collective suffering of humanity. As usual for Finndeath, “that tone” is present. The song structures are always progressing, so riffs never become stale, but the transitions from riff to riff are executed incredibly well. That sounds like something only possible in the silly microcosmic world of Cannibal Corpse. 24,99 € – 26,99 € Nespithe LP - 1st pressing! Seriously, though, the vocals here are literally the most unique vocals in all of metal. Anyone who says there's no excuse for not having this album if you're a fan of death metal is partly wrong. While the music can be difficult to follow due to its chaos, its countless riffs linger in the mind individually. For example, I will certainly never win an award for being the world's biggest fan of technical death metal, so if you came to me praising this amazing technical death metal album you think I should hear, I'd probably ignore you. Nothing could be a greater mistake than avoiding what is being presented on this record based on what its surface elements look like on paper. That is an expression more adequately used for something the parts of which would have some appeal of themselves and being put together to something of high quality. The guitar is heavily downtuned, producing a tone that sounds like a predecessor to sludge metal. The first track begins with Mikko Virnes displaying his amazing skills behind the drums, blasting his way around until the guitar comes in. What if we had our vocalist belch his parts? Whatever it is that Demilich tried to express, there is no doubt that this is one of the most fascinating and matchless Death Metal albums ever created. Similarities to "Necroticism" era Carcass have been made and I can see the comparison, however everything on display is just a little more unpredictable and schizophrenic. They're awesome to read. Demilich are not only explorers and discoverers, but they are also able musicians as well. I've seen a few discussions on whether Antti pitchshifted his vocals to sound the way they do, but I highly doubt it. Of course, Nespithe in general sounds like a mixture of broken glasses fused together to create the overall song structures, which makes them very confusing and technical in a loose sense of the word. The drumming is beautifully fluid throughout the album, reminding me of Chris Reifert and Nicke Andersson. One of the best pieces of death metal ever released, maybe even THE best. And You'll Remain... (In Pieces in Nothingness) I recommend you listen to the whole album from start to finish. I personally think his blast beats were the best of the early 90’s. What Demilich does is to interweave these awful parts into a radiant piece of art.

This album really is like none other. I thought John Gallagher of Dying Fetus had the burpiest vocals of all. The point is to emphasize the mindset that is needed to appreciate a work as bizarre as this. It sticks to the same pace for pretty much the entire running time, yet manages to stay interesting throughout. Nespithe 14,99 € Classic Adversary T-shirt 15,99 € Logo T-shirt 14,99 € Em9t2ness of van2s1ing / V34ish6ng 0f emptiness 2LP - 1st pressing! The drumming on this album is really balanced well. The album title itself is an anagram of "the spine" with the letters mixed around in a certain pattern. Perhaps one of the most remarkable things about this record is just how different it sounds to the rest of what this unremitting genre has to offer. This album isn't an easy first listen, that's for sure. Drums are perhaps the most unremarkable asset to this album. The drum production could have done with a little greater dynamic range, but there’s nothing significant to complain about the way Nespithe has been crafted. Because simply put, it's not a matter of a couple of good riffs strung up into something great. It's not because they're not good...oh no they're far from not good--it's just that they're on a relatively obscure record label and not well-known. I admit that I did find myself headbanging occasionally, but not too often. Songwriting is precisely thought out, seemingly random at first like jazz, however further listens reveal the themes and motifs played regularly re-ocurr throughout the song like some kind of extra-terrestrial symphony. Nespithe sounds like a mix of Mental Funeral era Autopsy, Necroticism era Carcass, and Unquestionable Presence era Atheist. This album is one of a kind. The guy behind the kit shows us that with the least amount of technicality (because, frankly, I've heard way more intricate drumming) you can serve the music 100%. You know, in that alternate universe in which time runs backwards, this album would be the world's most derided as having stolen every single idea bands had after 1993. jacobjsamano September 26, 2020 Report; referencing Nespithe, LP, Album, Ltd, RE, SRE284. Every song is composed coherently and with creative thought. However, Demilich will never be forgotten with the release of 1993's "Nespithe". Nespithe, an Album by Demilich. Can't believe this review hasn't gotten featured yet. This is an album so original and well crafted, I literally can't find anything bad about it, nothing even mediocre or above average. It is a real shame that this is the only full-length ever put out by Demilich, because this album was simply chaotic brilliance. What some people tend not to notice, however, is that this is generally some of the weirdest music in all of metal. 20th Adversary Of Emptiness 2CD - incl. The lyrics are beyond the wildest fantasies of any space madness-induced hallucination, and I can not even begin to describe them in a sober state of mind. I feel like every aspiring metal musician should listen to this album. The drums, courtesy of Mikko Virnes, change patterns frequently, use unusual patterns, and usually fire on all cylinders. I suppose otherworldly best describes these riffs, but even then I feel that isn't quite the right way to phrase it. The songs that Boman and his mates composed still feel indebted to traditional death metal in their usage of tremolo picking, standard power chords and the Slayer-esque lead work. They have a certain dynamic which is hard to explain, but their sound is very much that of "extraterrestial" sludgy, melodic death metal (with grindy passages no less). The riffs here are dissonant, yet also fucking catchy. Demilich - Nespithe. The vocalist utilizes an amazingly low and guttural belch that sounds really sick and ugly. With this unique sound, they have achieved a certain cult following, and rightfully so. Exploration is taken further with unpredictable song construction that seems somewhat random but ,as stated previously, coherent. Four demos’ and one full-length later they broke up which is sad, leaving us with only these releases to marvel at. However, the leap from the demos to this record is astounding. Maybe it was my mind blowing Forgotten Legend’s article about Demilich’s incredible debut, or maybe is just serendipity, but Svart Records has just released a brand new 3LP and 2CD digipack box set entitled 20th Adversary of Emptiness that contains every single brutal note Demilich has ever recorded. Though these songs aren't catchy, despite what some have claimed, Nespithe is a memorable experience that’s immensely enjoyable. Nespithe MC (DR76) 7,90 € – 9,90 € Winterwolf: Lycanthropic Metal of Death LP 18,99 € – 19,99 € Vive l'Adversaire! An amorphous horror creeping towards your brain, devouring your will to live along the way, letting you sink into a nice safe zone to be devoured by this album eternally. DEMILICH Nespithe music review by toroddfuglesteg has always (since 2002) relied on banners ads to cover web hosting fees and all. Hey, whoever said that the abstract realm was a pretty place anyway? It plays with what's technical, surreal, slimy, and pioneers an extremely alien sounding style of death metal with this album being a loner in style and among everything this band has created. On Nespithe, however, Demilich transcend death, invoking themes of cosmic horror and concepts so intensely sublime that mortal listeners can barely begin to comprehend them. They certainly do manage to obtain a sense of chaos with their unpredictable arrangements, but they never just throw in random riffs for their own sake. It’s an album marvellously consistent in tone and style, and though Demilich do not stray any bit from their style, there are plenty of riffs that stand out as being memorable, provided the listener is diligent enough to seek them. Over the years, though, better experimental death metal bands emerged, and to me Demilich doesn't sound any different than most death metal bands, to some extent. Sure, Demilich doesn't change tempos quite as much and it's not as jagged and jarring, but they have a tremendous wall of sound from track one to track eleven. Musically, this is one of the more adventurous death metal albums, and for its atmosphere alone, you should check it out. Sure, lack of distortion is not bad, but when you lack distortion you record multiple takes of the same guitar track to beef up the sound, which they obviously never did, or they multi-tracked really weak distortion. While being quite technical, they never go "balls to the wall" tech by shedding the living hell out of their guitars or ripping the drum heads off. Nespithe is the only album recorded by Finnish death metal band Demilich. Shit slays like no tomorrow. The bass is very good, very audible and with deep tone, sounding at times as if it was a second guitar. Strangely enough however, they are not malformed and are sequenced quite smoothly; never stepping out of the boundaries of coherency. The vocals are not intended to be the focus of the listener; instead, it adds a thundering resonance beneath the miasmatic riffs, quiet enough so that they never get in the way of the album’s strongest suit. Burp. I've been listening to death metal for a long time, and I've yet to find an album that sounds like this. Bass is also a worthy mention. Download the album, check it out and then please seek out a proper copy of the album - you won't be disappointed. The titular musician is beset by the floundered student, and attempts to explain to him all of his troubles, but is overcome by the music so much that he is killed by the other forces, but is playing his melodies even after death, to ward his corpse of evils. If you’ve gotten past your “I hate harsh vocals” stage of n00b-dom as a metal fan, then this really isn’t as inaccessible as some make it out to be. Death metal novices would do good to try and truly broaden their horizons with this thing, by that I mean gaze into the writhing, slimy maw of the abyss and try to understand it's disgusting, yet profound mutterings. Still I could have chosen an easier album as my first review here in MA. Necropolis, 1993 Besides that, there isn't really much to point out when it comes to the negatives. The guitar work alone will leave anyone trying to emulate it with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome! Luckily, that’s what happens to make this so undeniably awesome in every way. But that doesn't really matter, the point of the review was to talk about how great this album is. On paper, the guitarwork on Nespithe might be sound like a description of jazz music before anything else, although you wouldn’t think it for a second while listening to music itself. Guitar melodies are just pain fucking weird, constantly evolving and on the move, never settling down to any mere pretentious simplistic riffage or sappy melodies. It's been said before that the vocalist sounds like he's talking out of his small-intestine, and I guess I say that I concur. Review: Demilich hold true to the melodic tradition of Finnish metal by merging the heavy metal tradition of rich tonal space liberated by abstract conceptions of harmony with death metal, layering their ideas into songs where complexity silhouettes but does not illustrate an overall thematic space via postmodernist metastructuralism. This style of drumming may sound quite odd, but it does actually work quite well with the rest of the instrumentation. The album has long been out of print but Demilich have made the album available for free in digital form on their official website along with all their demos. It's another one of those albums that isn't easy to headbang to because the main melodies aren't decipherable enough. Demilich is labeled as technical death metal, however I don’t see them as exactly technical, because they leave out all the unnecessary wankery that you may find in a lot of music labeled as technical. Whereas it would be expected even from a left-field band like this one to loosen the reins for a while and offer a taste of simplicity, Demilich doesn’t compromise their sophistication for a second. (03:41) The Sixteenth Six-Tooth Son of Fourteen Four-Regional Dimensions (Still Unnamed)03. And just as tenacious as the concerns voiced in the second paragraph were prior to my subsequent indulgence, as swiftly they were washed away by the sheer quality of this album's writing and performance. While the instruments' tuning were tuned very low to sound crushing, this crushing heaviness didn't possess anything mind-blowing on a technical scale, nothing challenging or new. However, Demilich will never be forgotten with the release of 1993's "Nespithe". User reviews & ratings for the album Nespithe by Demilich. It’s not even comical anymore; it just fits in the world of Nespithe. However it is also essential to note that uniqueness in itself is of little validity without an egregiously solid or acquiescently harmonious sound base, which is almost exactly what Demilich offers. The human voice simply does not reverberate the way Antti's vocals do on this album, and the pitch is similar to a burp, a sound that a human cannot constantly do as displayed here. Als die finnischen Death-Metaller DEMILICH vor gut 20 Jahren ihr erstes und einziges Album „Nespithe“ rausbrachten, hatten sie damit ein in jeder Hinsicht bemerkenswertes und einzigartiges Werk veröffentlicht. I don't understand the legal situation as to why this was a free download, etc., but I do know that the band members were very upset that the rerelease of Nespithe and their first demo didn't sell well. Let me just say that he doesn't sound human at all! Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in 1280 x 960 resolution or higher. If you don’t stop to listen to the drumming you may never realize just how entertaining they are since they are a little lower in the mix. This is one of the most bizarre, psychedelic albums I have ever heard, and the track names only provide a glimpse of how outlandish this album is. This is complex in a way that the actual techniques are simple, and the riffs aren't all that fast, but the way the riffs are constructed makes it so damn hard to play, and incredibly strange to hear, all the while not sounding too much like technical wankery and keeping an interesting variance to them. Has anyone ever talked out of his or her small intestine? The music no longer reminds you of 2 month old milk. It was released on now defunct Necropolis Records and despite falling on relatively deaf ears, one of the greatest death metal records of all time. The Putrefying Road in the Nineteenth Extremity (...Somewhere Inside the Bowels of Endlessness...) Rating: 0 reviews. Demilich was one of the most obscure and unique bands to emerge from the early 90's death metal emission. The overall production is superb and for such and underground release it is a real surprise. It all creates a certain aesthetic flow that can only be compared to the beauty of the workings of the universe themselves. If that wasn't weird enough Antti Boman starts...well, singing. This may be tricky music, but it doesn’t sound forced, or like a demonstration. Heh, it's an abstract concept. to create an undercurrent of low end heading off in a different direction wherever necessary. The guitars basically sound like a sonic boom bouncing all over the walls of a deep cave (I don’t think that will help much). In fact, it feels planned out in a way that probably shouldn't be comprehended by mere humans. Of course, there’s no mean to say that Demilich blast their way through this at 299 bpm. If you ask me, that is probably best for Demilich’s brand of death metal, because it leaves room for the vocals and guitars, and gives the percussion a change to support the music in more ways than just “being brutal.” Hell, this isn’t even a brutal album at all. They are completely fucking weird. It is a bit of an odd thing that I not only checked this album out, but actually gave it enough listens to fully grasp the genius behind it, because I am usually impervious to the fierce word of mouth propaganda that led to my doing so in the end. This maintains a more personal feel for the listener rather than just being the borderline technical exercise combined with over-triggered sound that many drummers in modern death metal bands seem to utilise. I don't know what possessed these drunk Finnish guys to write this mind-warping record, but I'm really glad they did. ...and so on and so forth. It's not exactly aesthetically pleasing or exciting in any traditional senses, and it won't strike anyone as "heavy fucking metal," but it is so weird that not acquiring it through whatever means (it's free for download) will leave you incomplete.

Demilich’s debut and only full-length release, Nespithe, has Forgotten Legends written all over it. Needless to say, to even be at the point of having an informed opinion of an album such as Nespithe, I have come a long way. cannibal corpse This is way heavier and more evil. Printed on both sides Base: Fruit of the Loom ... Write a review. That said, for me, they don't add a huge amount, reason being that they are undecipherable and, more importantly, the music is so captivating, so all consuming, that I barely hear the vocals. Comparable, of course, to Gorguts in their weirdness, but simultaneously being far more fun than their Canadian cousins. Size: Price: $15.99. Intricate riffs and pounding blast beats are merged perfectly with complex rhythms and time changes that keep the listener hooked, not knowing what to expect next. Nespithe was ahead of its time and still sounds fresh and highly original 16 years after its initial release. It's an album to be heard at least once in your lifetime, because there isn't anything as strange sounding, or as musically filling, as this is. They are fairly low in the mix but sound quite detached from the other instrument tracks as well. This album is beyond bizarre, abstract and just pure fucking chaos. Released 31 August 2018 on Extremely Rotten (catalog no. The extremely burpy and echoey vocals of Boman are like nothing I've ever heard. God was I wrong. Only he’s not using any processing after all, which just makes it that much scarier. Demilich somehow took their obsession of unorthodox scales and rhythms and manage to craft some of the most fun and oddly accessible songs in metal. My low score might have given a negative connotation of my opinion towards this album, but that is not the case at all. However that is all but a small complaint. Cult Of Lilith. Everything here is so unconventional and so determined to shuffle forward in ways that defy earthly musical conventions and common sense itself that there isn't much predating the album one can compare it to. Demilich’s debut and only full-length release, Nespithe, has Forgotten Legends written all over it. For styles similar to Pantera's, it's more appropriate for songs to have stronger identities. User reviews & ratings for the album Nespithe by Demilich. Nespithe wouldn't be Nespithe if you changed it even the slightest bit. The flow is very good as all tracks seem to follow up the preceeding one perfectly. The band has made the whole album available for free download from its website, along with demos, rehearsals and live material, due to it getting shafted by Necropolis which didn't pay them royalties for sales of the reissue. This album is the missing link between European and US death metal. This album really is like none other. What if we got a schizophrenic to write our lyrics and song titles? In fact that’s the one aspect I can’t seem to get enough of, and wish they had released a second album expanding on this songwriting idea. Demilich is one of those very experimental and unorthodox death metal bands that came out of nowhere, yet attracted the vast majority of the fans of the genre with ease, and unexpectedly so. Yet what also makes these riffs so great is how well they work in conjunction with the drums. The remaining tracks fall right back into place with the first seven. So, the biggest complaint I have to make is towards the producer of the album, who more or less ruined the whole thing. 7 Views . This sounds nothing like any 'technical death metal' I have ever heard. Burps? The set comes with a 40 page booklet with lyrics, song commentary, new Demilich-themed art by David Mikkelsen and Johnny Maddox plus a lengthy Q&A session between Olivier 'Zoltar' Badin and Antti Boman. This page includes DEMILICH Nespithe's : cover picture, songs / tracks list, members/musicians and line-up, different releases details, buy online: ebay and amazon, ratings and detailled reviews by some experts, collaborators and members. Looking at the big picture of this album, everything is as it should be. Description; Attributes; Reviews (0) Official worldwide licence from the band. The album was released in February 1993 by Necropolis Records. Demilich’s sole album is a masterpiece that blends proficient technical oddity with ridiculous camp, wrapped between some slimy, gummy, earworm that was way ahead of everyone's ears. Moreover, there certainly is no love lost between myself and death metal that infuses a strong sense of melody, so if you praised the great melodies on this album, hell would freeze over before you got me even remotely interested. Nespithe MC (DR76) 7,90 € – 9,90 € Winterwolf: Lycanthropic Metal of Death LP 18,99 € – 19,99 € Vive l'Adversaire! Does it also mean that someone inherited the ability to stand up over the toilet and mechanically lower their rectum to be sure the turds fall into the toilet and don't splash water all over the place? It's a voice from the past, present, and future. Guitars play chromatcially orientated melodic lines that tend to vary greatly in scalic hierachy,but always make sense in the context of the song. Nespithe The double CD package features new artwork by original Nespithe cover artist Turkka Rantanen, and the classic cover is included as well. With the bass guitar virtually non-existent it really is the rhythm guitar and drums which are the backbone of this recording. How this was not uncovered sooner is beyond me, I mean when Xtreem Music released this several years ago not sure why Demilich would not have dug up the true masters back then. You won't find yourself frequently headbanging to the guitar riffs, yet, much like Richard Wagner, you'll find yourself in awe of just how well they are assembled. That would be Demilich’s unique point of view? It’s a shame that some listeners can’t look past Demilich’s vocal choices, because even if Boman’s vocals lack the range of a more conventional masterpiece, they still come secondary to the otherworldly riffs that consume Nespithe. Back in the day, you'd find death metal bands rising mostly from Florida and New York states, England, and Sweden, respectively. Tremolo is used only when it fits the moment, the rest of the riffs are technical fretting on the low and middle strings so it's a steady deviation from the norms of traditional DM. Also, despite what others say, I really like the production of the album since it’s drenched in the right amount reverb and distortion that the album retains a sense of clarity within the madness. Genre: Heavy Metal, Artiest: Demilich, Media type: CD The interesting thing about it here is that it’s not muddy like it is on many Finndeath albums. Keep in mind that this record was released in 1993, where bands like Nile, Necrophagist, Psycroptic and Dying Fetus hadn't released true Technical Death Metal per say. Villein – Splendor Solis [UK, Dungeon Synth] (2020) 2 days ago Valley of Steel. They were very low for death metal at the time, with the closest one could find in bands like the aforementioned Bolt Thrower, Barney era Napalm Death and that Skeleton of God’s demo. In addition to the great music, the track titles are hilarious - "The Sixteenth Six-Tooth Son of Fourteen Four-Regional Dimensions (Still Unnamed)", and "Inherited Bowel Levitation - Reduced Without Any Effort". This isn’t like Molested’s Blod Draum, early Suffocation, or the many bands in the future that rely on dissonance and unfriendly but technical songwriting that is blanketed with wall of sound whose sole purpose is to simply pummel the listener with dissonance (Portal, Chthe’ilist, etc). Even if tech death isn't your thing, listen to this album, because it will open your eyes to what metal can be at its weirdest. Praised by many as the best finnish death metal album of all time, Demilich’s first and only album Nespithe is an album like no other. How can you not have Behemoth's Demigod in your top three and call yourself a fan of the genre? I'm conscious of the fact that this review may make it seem as though the album is just a mix of Atheist, Carcass, Autopsy etc, but I have to say, while I can hear elements of those outfits in Demilich's music, this band is one of the most singularly original extreme metal acts ever to grace this rotten stage. The right amount of praise, with the right amount of thought put behind it, by the right people, usually not enough for me to budge, but! The sound is still very crisp and enjoyable. Demilich have opted to completely ditch the idea of creating riffs which would induce a physical seizure (unlike Morbid Angel or Sepultura) yet favored a much more pragmatic, and dare I say, musically profound approach which does not rest on any single instrument. What it would ultimately take for me to garner an interest in death metal was to see the genre from an entirely different perspective. Als die finnischen Death-Metaller DEMILICH vor gut 20 Jahren ihr erstes und einziges Album „Nespithe“ rausbrachten, hatten sie damit ein in jeder Hinsicht bemerkenswertes und einzigartiges Werk veröffentlicht. The music presented on here is unorthodox not just by the standards of metal, but of music itself. To clue you in, if you hadn't read the thing, it's about a man who finds a lodging on a street that he can't remember even finding, only to come into contact with a man capable of writing and hearing melodies that drive off an intradimensional force that only he can see because of his apparent height in an apartment building. Virnes is by no means a slouch, he is infact a double bass freak, not so much his speed, yet the fact he enjoys giving it a go at every opportunity. There's also the instrumental "Erecshyrinol" which has possibly the most unexpectedly epic riff in metal. See how this album was rated and reviewed by the users of Album Rating: 5.0incantation onward to golgotha Production: Pretty boxy but allright, clear at least. A large part of what has made Demilich such an enduring gem is their lack of successor; no artist since has made death metal that sounds quite like them. Lovecraft. They are full of twists and turns and generally tend to wind around for a while. Bomans’s lower vocal fry is blended with relaxed vocal passages, this Boman sound inhumanly powerful while not feeling angry or blood hungry like most death metal vocalists. In all these years of listening to metal, death metal was the genre that took the longest for me to come to enjoy. First off, I highly recommend anyone not familiar with this band to visit Demilich's official website and download this, and all their demo material. The Echo (Replacement) To make it simpler, I'll just say that the vocals sound similar to that of grindcore bands or experimental brutal death metal bands like Wormed. (I wont give you the timestamp, you will know what i'm talking about when you listen to it) There’s hardly any other way to describe how utterly strange and otherworldly this album sounds. As I said before it's music is all but simple. The point is that the resulting album sounds starkly different from the prototypical death metal LP of the day. It may be great, but old school death metal tends to not be on the more technical side of things. The guitar sometimes sounds buried under the drums and vocals, but this does not detract from the actual experiance. I can see why this album is thought of as a classic death metal album. It's the voice of a subconscious mind. And it’s not just the melodies that stand out because of their uniqueness, the riffs are also rhythmically different.
