Label: Norma Evangelium Diaboli
Date: December 13, 2019

Did Norma Evangelium Diaboli label ever cheated us when it comes to Satanic black metal sound?! Never in it’s life, same is now and with unknown band NedXXX and their ice-breaker album “NedXXX”.

Almost under the all radars label and this band spited out their full-length. But as it is case with devoted underground black metal fans, this also went noticed in the eyes of beholders. Furious black metal without any shred of remorse or taking some prisoners.

Like in case of big majority of Ned roster, this album also possess great production which brought up it’s sinister atmosphere fulfilled with relentless anger and wrath that firing from all its cannons.

In eight audio violent acts this material brought something over thirty minutes of black metal that will stuck in your brain for ages to come. Their music, put aside that it is black metal, in the same time it possess almost avant-garde vibe within. Experimental touch is almost touchable in every riff, but yet they made it effective and well-placed.

When it comes to guitar work, on that place, guys in the band made a perfect job. As I told, although there is an experimental vibe, they made it very well. All that passages are well placed in overall arrangements in every song.

Vocals mix black metal style with an almost nineties death metal vocal style, with few clean words like “Diabolical”, “Satan” and similar. All of that bring new dimension to an album. They also used some spoken words and quotes which bring even more ominous feeling to their first material.

Drumming works their charm here. From mid-paced beating til almost ritualistic rhythms in behind the guitars and vocal. They know their place and role in the material, and drums made it effective.
