Ad Nauseam are a band from Italy that plays a very technical and brutal form of death metal along with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Nihil Quam Vacuitas Ordinatum" which will be released on March 31st by Lavadome Productions.
Dark sounding synths start off the album and a few seconds later the music starts going into more of a technical and progressive death metal direction that incorporates a great amount of blast beats, growls and screams and the solos and leads the band uses also demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill.
A good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and after awhile the music starts mixing in more of a brutal death metal style and some of the later tracks also bring in a small amount of avant garde jazz elements which also gives the songs more of an original style.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing at times and there are also a few tracks that bring in small doses of classical music elements along with a touch of experimental and all of the songs bring in an original style of death metal.
Ad Nauseam plays a style of death metal that mixes the brutal, technical and progressive styles of the genre together and they also add in a touch of black metal, jazz and classical music to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Ad Nauseam are a very great sounding technical and progressive death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Key To Timeless Laws" "Terror Haze" and "The Black Veil Of Original Flaw". 8 out of 10.
