I guess this is for me the first time to listen to some Estonian death metal? Anyway, it doesn't matter, after all these corpse-scented growls are practiced in every corner of the world which is all right. The sounds of Nihilistikrypt aren't insanely ultrabrutal nor are they only stale old school. There are melodies and they remind me some of the bands from early 90's, though it certainly has influences from more modern bands aswell. And there are some more progressive moments which add a certain spiciness to the whole mix, the technical parts really work and are even catchy, because the tempo isn't too frenzied. In a way one could compare them with Atheist, though the tempo won’t rise to the level of nowaday extreme maniacs, but the technical and progressive wholeness really rules. So the self-released debut of Nihilistikrypt should be definitely considered a positive surprise by holding high the flag of traditional death metal and at the same time mixing it with new and exciting elements. Good start from a new band.
