Last year we wrote about the debut to Nemus, Wald Mench. Now are Frank Riegler and his Nemus back with the second album, See Mench. A mixture of black metal, post rock, folk instruments and tortured vocals create a dark and energy filled atmosphere, which is supported by self-recorded forest and water sounds. A story of self-hatred, agony and at some point acceptance. The album See – Mensch from Nemus contains six songs that will tell you the story of the water human and take you right into his empire in the depth of the lake.
I often enjoy awesome & obscure release if the music impresses me and feels fresh and genuine. Nemus is such an artist that stretch the boundary for atmospheric post black metal. He also use self-made samplers as for instance use of exotic noises from Sri Lanka. Many crazy birds in one place fits with Nemus and on the See – Mench album.
The ambience and the emotion this album has are not describable, but utterly worth lending your ears to! The screams, the doomish sound, the mixture of melodic, slow parts and the emotional breakdowns into fast blast beats. The contrasts stand out from most other artists.
