Nyseius – De Divinatione Daemonum (2015)


Five years in the making, today we have “De Divinatione Daemonum” from French Black Metal battalion Nyseius. With a dominating sound and a knack for creating oppressive aural soundscapes, this release is one that you will not see coming with its vicious 66 minutes of dense Black Metal.  

Slowing introducing the listener to their dissonant world, “De Casu Diaboli” perfectly unravels this release. Instantly going for the throat, “Black God Ascension” and “Exitinction of the Seven Divine Spirits”, the band’s relentless spirit is admirable as they deliver their ruthless music. As they blast through high-intensity pieces like “Finis Terra Sancta” and the demoralizing “Possessor of the Key to all Mysteries”, we also love the creepy interludes like the disturbing “Lamentation Prayers”.

Going from zero to a hundred in milliseconds, OAC does a great job with quite a drumming performance in this release. Our personal favorite track in this album is the ravaging “Job’s Revelation” and its oppressive whirlwind guitar riffs. Handling both lead guitars and vocals, Daeloth can easily be compared to Horna/Sargeist mastermind Shatraug and his musical powers into turning Black Metal into a destructive force.

Being huge fans of dense and brutal Black Metal, “De Divinatione Daemonum” is one album is a must have in our collection. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Nyseius is one of those bands that are so punishing that will leave you wanting more and more. Purchase a copy of this… if you are not afraid.
