Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (90/100)
Date : 
기교적이면서도 이집트 풍의 느낌도 나는 복잡미묘한 사운드를 보여줬던 Nile 의 데뷔앨범 입니다.어느정도 기교,테크니컬한 밴드는 있으나 이집트적인 부르탈적인 속도보다 컨셉?부터가 어느정도 독특한 편이면서도 사운드 또한 이집트 적인 느낌이 최대한 나면서도 기타와 적절이 융합되어 자신들 만의 변칙적인 사운드가 나왔다는게 향후 크게 발전할 대형 밴드의 탄생을 예고하는 앨범이었습니다.

Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka Comments

level   (75/100)
나일 데뷔앨범은 솔직히 그닥 테크니컬/브루탈 답지 않다.
level   (80/100)
브루탈 특유의 직선적인 분위기. 리프와 같이 전개되는 어지러운 기타 솔로가 일품.
level   (80/100)
될성부른 나무는 새싹부터 알아본다라는 말이 있다. 짧은 러닝타임이 좀 아쉬울 뿐.
