Nexul – “Hexecration” (Song Premiere)

nexul - paradigm cover

There is always an exception to the rule. My rule? No “bestial” black/death metal. Well, except for Nexul. A band I had generally avoided due to style, it was Nexul’s set which highlighted my dismal weekend at Hells Headbash 2 back in 2015. Though mired in the minimalism and cavernous atmospheres which are hallmarks of what some call “goat metal,” these Texans borrow a significant, intense persona from the legendary Katharsis. Now with a long-awaited full-length of their own, Nexul goes long-form with their specific brand of berserker metal. This is music to which one can enjoy only through total submission.

The first “proper” song on debut Paradigm of Chaos, “Hexecration” is nonstop hate-fueled mayhem, a full-tilt exercise in songwriting versus texture and atmosphere versus clear-cut structure. Set aside from their bestial brethren, Nexul’s approach is precise and clearly communicated, but not without their own devotion to black/death metal’s own, sloppy presence.

Paradigm of Chaos will be released on Hells Headbangers Records on July 28th. Listen to “Hexecration” below.
