NOCTE OBDUCTA
NOCTE OBDUCTA
Nektar Teil 1
(Supreme Chaos Records)
51:25min

It took me long to finally start writing this review: along with terrifying laziness came the question: how can one possibly do justice to the beauty and the might of this album? Should I even try some sort of poetic approach? Nah, definitely the wrong moment. So I'll just try the usual thing about NOCTE's 6th release. "Nektar Teil 1: Zwölf Monde, eine Hand voll Träume" is a rather calm album with lots of sinister yet beautiful melodies. Even seems to give me a glance of the sublime. Of course there is rage on this album as well but it's integrated so natural you almost don't notice until you realize you're banging your head like a maniac! Then: beauty again. Sometimes it vaguely reminds me of PINK FLOYD and how they might sound like if they had been founded in the 1990s. This is sheer musicality for both morons like me as well as for music students built on a Black Metal basis but showing its middle finger to musical drawers and boundaries mankind seems to be so damn fond of. African percussions? Why not as long as it serves the song? For me this is one of the most impressive albums of 2004 and I didn't even comment on the concept of the impressively poetic German (!) lyrics inspired by the four seasons... Can't wait for "Nektar Teil 2" coming in January 2005! Finally, a quick word to those who find the production "too good": wake up! Definitely a must have. Hope it's gonna be out on vinyl as well: magnificent art work! www.nocte-obducta.de
