NOMINON
NOMINON
Chaos In The Flesh... Live!
(Morbid Skull Records / Deathgasm Records / Disembodied Records / Satanath Records)
47:16min

Live albums have more and more become a double-edged sword. Back in the 1970s and early 1980s, it was part of the good reputation of a Rock band to release a live album, preferably a double LP. Loads of great concert records have been released back then, with known songs in different, often longer or improvised versions. But this has changed in the last 30 years. Less bands released live records and those who did focussed on reproducing their songs as close to the studio version as possible. And with longform videos and later DVDs, this media became the preferred one to release concert documents. Nowadays, live albums are not much more than the soundtrack of a concert DVD. But not any band chooses this way. Swedish Death Metal old hands NOMINON released this live album in a pretty old fashioned way. Originally, “Chaos In The Flesh... Live!” was put out on tape by the Spanish label Hexed Cemetery before it saw its release on CD a few months later in 2016. The songs were recorded a year earlier in Stockholm (hence the Swedish announcements) shortly before NOMINON went on hold. What we get to hear is a raw, authentic recording that sounds very good and captures the energy of this band on stage. If you dig old fashioned Swedish Death Metal in its nearly purest form, NOMINON will really feed your needs. And this album proves they always did so, since the songs on “Chaos In The Flesh... Live!” cover all albums the band released. You'll find songs from the first album “Diabolical Bloodshed” ('Sodom's Fall', 'Malicious Torment') as well as some more from the (hopefully not) last album “The Cleansing” ('In The Name Of Gomorrah', 'Mausoleum' or the title track). We also get to hear the band classic 'Mantra Reverse' and the 7” song 'Blaspheming The Dead'. So, the tracklist of this album is a kind of “Best Of NOMINON”, if you want. Good reasons for nearly all of you to check “Chaos In The Flesh... Live!”, since NOMINON is a band that shouldn't be missed. Before I leave you now, there's just one question left unanswered - why was the MOTÖRHEAD cover 'The Hammer' omitted from the CD version? Maybe you'll find it out at: www.facebook.com/nominon666, www.morbidskullrecords.com or www.satanath.com
