Nullentropy are a solo project from France that plays a progressive and blackened form of death metal and this is a review of his 2019 album "The Singularity" which was re-issued in 2021 by Time Tombs Productions.
A sci-fi and synth orientated intro starts off the album before going into a heavier direction which also introduces death metal growls onto the recording. Black metal screams are also utilized at times along with most of the tracks also being very long and epic in length and melodies are also added into some of the riffs.
Clean vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of brutal sounding blast beats. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them.
Keyboards and clean playing are also added on some of the tracks and also give the music more of a progressive feeling along with some saxophones and ethnic style instruments also being utilized on a few songs. Tremolo picking is also added into some of the faster riffing as well as the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style, one track also adds in a brief use of acoustic guitars. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction and the lost of humanity.
In my opinion Nullentropy are a very great sounding progressive blackened death metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "An Electric Sheep's Dream" "Man Made Machine God" and "Mechanical Uprising". 8 out of 10.
