Nonsun – Good Old Evil

Nonsun – Good Old Evil
Self released – 2012
Metal, Sludge, Drone, Doom
Rated: **

Formed in the Ukraine in 2011 the two guys from Nonsun have delivered their debut album Good Old Evil and with it aim to musicalize the pure evil you can count on and trust to always be around. Crushing doom and sludge that burns your bones and vaporizes your blood. The tracks move slow like gargantuan Goliath’s and ogres looking for fresh meat to pound on.  They search around in dark caves and jump into riff build abysses and drown in rivers of molten lava feedback. Yes; I’m going a bit overboard here; but so is Nonsun on occasion. They deliver a huge amount of incredible ideas and buildups; but rarely take it to its logical conclusion or continuation. Which is a shame cause the opening track alone has enough extraordinary material to explore and delve into; their ideas are many but so are their chosen paths; which do not always lead to the castle at the center of the labyrinth…
