Nemesium are a band from Australia that plays a melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Continua" which was released by Black Lion Records.
Sci-fi sound effects and spoken word parts start off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats can be heard while the vocals are mostly death metal growls and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while black emtal screams are also added into some parts of the music. The songs also mix in a decent amount of progressive and technical elements along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style.
Tribal drumming can also be heard briefly which also gives the recording more of a shamanistic atmosphere before returning back to a heavier musical direction along with the songs also mixing in a great amount of Swedish influences as well as one track also introducing clean playing onto the recording and as the album progresses a brief instrumental can also be heard which also introduces synths onto the album. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction themes.
In my opinion Nemesium are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Archetype" "The Fire And The Flesh" "The Dawn Of Retribution" and "Relive this Nightmare". 8 out of 10.
