The guitars paint pictures of post apocalyptic landscapes, and the vocals tell the story of a destroyed, post-apocalypse earth where the rapture didn't happen and the "saved" were left to suffer with the rest.
The most immediately noticeable thing upon first listening is the production quality. Absolutely outstanding. It creates an eerie, dark atmosphere perfect for the delivery of the material on this recording. The drums have a thundering power to them (although just a drum machine). The bass drum groove / galloping that kicks in at the 1:00 mark is truly perfect. The keyboards have this incredible high, soaring sound to them, a really nice blend into the mix of the sound. The rhythms thrown in by the synths in some sections really adds to the song. There is some nice piano work done in some parts as well. The vigorous vocals on this recording really work well for the topic of the song. The chant build up that begins around the 3:30 mark of "Where is your god?" is as creepy as it is powerful. The best thing about this is the way everything comes together so perfectly. All instruments doing complex things around each other, creating one of the better sounding atmospheric black metal releases I've heard. Not only is this worth a listen, it might be worth a place in your listening sessions for quite some time.
From blasting drum and guitar riffs to melodic piano sections, everything is done flawlessly. Every aspect of this album seems to be covered. Even the cover art has a nice quality to it. A huge logo stretching across a lava carved landscape with a planet floating towards the right side. A nice picture to view as you listen to this great artist, and I'll end on an interesting note; Aberration Nexus is composed of just one man: Chris Meyer.
