One can genuinely absorb this concoction of feelings that are extremely similar to what I imagine would be like in an utmost dangerous, yet serene, icy environment. The ambient record manages to grasp the character-forming experience of either watching nature at work through stretches of millions of years (probably set in prehistoric times) or the exact moment of conquering a frosty, icy vertical cliff alone. The mindset of the climber may also be something this music succeeds in illustrating.

A gyönyörű borító mögött egy természet közeli élmény lapul. A napi pörgésből átszippant egy relaxációs utazásba, ellazít, kisimít, megnyugtat.

As I see it, Apples is the most mature work delivered by Nagaarum so far. The absorbing scientific concept, the balance between the ambient and metal, the experiemental touch, and the authentic Nagaarum sound have never been so professionally fused together. This grandiose piece is indeed a long journey, where one could explore the true gist of what Nagaarum really is about. Excellent record!

Ebbe a lemezbe sikerült Nagaarum minden arculatából belecsippenti egy-egy részletet és hibátlanul összedolgozni. Kiváló album, remek hangzással, szép tálalásban, arányok megtartásával.

Kövezzenek meg, de én itt nem találtam „post” elemeket, ugyanis az anyag egy kegyetlen in-your-face csapás, leginkább régisulis hardcore és crust keveréke. Sebaj, jó ki fülsimogató zúzda ez, ami hallatán a néhai Hold X True is eszembe jutott, főként a helyenként túlerőltetettnek ható ének révén. Alig húsz perc, de ebből ennyi is elég, hogy levezesd a dühöt vagy felesleges energiát.

Kurvára 2018 hazai lemeze volt számomra! A ma már sajnálatos módon megszűnt – illetve, mint kiderült, BORU létformává átalakult – csapat remek érzékkel házasította a hc/crust/metal stílusok alkotóelemeit egy brutális szörnyeteget szabadítva ezzel a világra. Az anyag felér egy atomcsapással, a súlyosan csikorgó soundtól kezdve az apokaliptikus hangvételig minden a helyén van, a borítót pedig legszivesebben a hátamra varratnám.

Gratula a kiadónak, hogy egy ilyen minőségi szörnyet sikerült a felszínre emelni a mocsárból, kár lett volna ott hagyni a mélyben! Tubák uralja a lemezt, hangja rátelepszik az elménkre és egy irányba tereli ezt az extrém masszát.

Na kérem. Írok már ide magyarul is, lássák tessék. (Helló TG!) A Tomusz nagyon kis pöpec banda volt Szegedről, crust/HC/metal keverék, párszor láttam őket élőben, jól kenték. A lényeg a lényegben, hogy az utódzenekarra tessék nagyon odafigyelni mert őőőőőrületes kraft van benne. B O R U !!!

Actually this is pretty disturbing stuff. Forget the good vibes - OPHITEA will bring you nightmarish landscapes in just 3 movements - this is exactly NOT the music you will fall asleep to. Buzzing, droning, looping sounds of isolation, alienation and cold space. Something must be lurking over there... or a glimpse of dark thoughts. I really curios about the continuation of this project, should be really cool to hear more from MARE ERYTHRAEUM in this special form.
