UMUR
"Thus Spoke The Antichrist" is the debut full-length studio album by Portugese death metal act Nihility. The album was released through Black Lion Records in May 2019. Nihility is a five-piece act formed in 2012 in Porto.

"Thus Spoke The Antichrist" features 8 tracks and a total playing time of 28:51 minutes, so it´s a relatively short release. It´s enough time to get to know Nihility though. The music style is death metal which draws influences from various sub-genres of the main style. It´s not old school, but it´s not deathcore/breakdown type death metal either, or melodic death metal for that matter. As the music features many different elements and influences it´s not easy to label or describe correctly. Despite the many different influences Nihility don´t have a particularly original sound.

Nihility are a technically well playing band, and the vocals (which are predominantly growling) are decent too. They could have prospered from a more unique singing approach, but there are occasional deviations from the deep growling, and those moments are great for the variation of the vocals on the album. "Thus Spoke The Antichrist" features a powerful and clear sounding production, which suits the material well. Upon conclusion it´s good quality death metal release. It´s solid but lacks a few memorable hooks to elevate it to a higher state, but a 3 star (60%) rating is still deserved.
