𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Menacing and invoking with dark heavy progressive doom-like riffage, with additional slow-sludgy, heavy psych, (while keeping the) malefic psychedelic and progressive vibe/influences and plenty of haunting and evil, menacing catchy solo riffing

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: The listener must wait until the middle of the second track for any vocals, this time are welcome to that classic doom metal of clean/chanting female or meal vocals

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Dark, deep, and heavy drum beats, to crush one soul and essences all over again!

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Nothing Is Real set out to make something darker, unique, aggressive and heavy music, and their hit the mark of insanity; with their newest release, with more in-depth of production and malefic music and epic songs. Nothing Is Real will take you on a nightmare-ish journey of madness and insanity of tormenting riffs, drums and vocals, with each one having a different element of melodies, moods, tone, aggressive/progressive etc., with acoustic guitar and a saxophone.


Keeping to their signature trademark, by not having many vocals on the album; keeping the evil/dark, bleak murky, filthy, disgusting and nihilistic instrumentation (heavy-hypnotic) music.

*Spine-chilling * Nightmare of a Journey*

*each song as its own story/personal identity*

*beauteous * spectacular*

A progressive doom metal act

that will make a more insane minded person, even more, insane

with more blasphemy and malefic awe-inspiring riffage & music

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Someone's nightmare or a  cave painting of a nightmare

“A bleak and nihilistic journey to the fire deep within one's soul. A call to arms against modern society, and to break the strings which bind you and embrace your godhood”

[Bandcamp artists page]

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: Nothing Is Real, for me delivered another masterpiece...

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: For me, I have no dislike for this album
