Black Path offers a glimpse into the darkest aspects of the human psyche, exploring motivations for people’s darkest intentions. Topics include homicide, suicide, narcissism, mental instability and political corruption, all through different perspectives and approaches regarding composition and subject matter.

Fans of the likes of Carcass and Bolt Thrower will find themselves at home with Nihil Eyes’ 8 track offering. An album built around unique intensity that is familiar of the European death metal scene. A blend of excruciating riffs, terrifying guttural vocals, booming percussion and an emotional honesty built deep within.

 

 

Whether it’s the slower and nastier vibe of Nihil Eyes and Border Line, the melodic style of As the Water Falls or the up-tempo, short attacks of Burn the Leech and True Nihilist, this is an album that delivers.

Ending with the most impressive song of the bunch, Manifesto’s savage drumming, methodical groove and underlying darkness will leave you spent but satisfied.
