Dead Rhetoric reviews Ravenous Spectre

Check out the review published about our album Ravenous Spectre. Written by Kyle McGinn:

(…) Hailing from Peru, NMK is the latest melodic death act to unleash their debut album to the masses. Three years in the making, Ravenous Spectre takes cues from bands such as Carcass, At the Gates, and Symphony X and inserts them into a frantic yet catchy formula. They are quite dead-on with their own descriptors as well – those who enjoy any of those three acts are bound to find NMK to be a nice addition to the scene.

Clocking in at slightly under 40 minutes (if you ignore the intro/outro), there’s not much time to be wasted, which is to NMK’s advantage. The thrashy, classic melodic death sound (a la the above references) is best utilized by a hit hard and get out mentality, and the first track “Outrage” embodies this exact spirit. Energetic and memorable riffs reign supreme, with a modern and punchy feel to accentuate the classic ingredients. There’s an almost feral quality to the riffing in its fast-moving pace (see “Lack of Judgment”), but the harmonies in the guitar lines and blazing solo workforce you to pay attention to the details instead of relying on an adrenaline rush to guide you though. The melodic sensibility comes out a bit more with the mid-tempo tracks, like “Backhand Game,” where darker grooves take the place of the thrashy intensity in an equally gripping way. The other crucial piece of their puzzle is that of vocalist Nathalie Markoch, who switches between a near power metal clean vocal and an utterly demonic roar. The percentages of each type keep it interesting, particularly in firing off the cleans atop more frantic guitar work – a fresh perspective that the band could easily further exploit in future recordings.

Vokills Reviews NMK´s Ravenous Spectre

Vokills Review NMK´s Ravenous Spectre

Read an excerpt of the review the guys from Vokills did about our album Ravenous Spectre, written by Stefan:

(…) A couple of days ago Ravenous Spectre was released, the debut full-length from Peruvian melodic death metal act NMK. For now, it’s only a digital release but in February 2018 a CD will be available from the band. With influences from Carcass, At The Gates and Symphony X, my interest was aroused.

With Nathalie Markoch on vocals, clean and growls, the band has a frontwoman with a characteristic voice, especially with her clean vocals. Sounding like a heavy metal singer she puts each and every song in a swirl with her voice, sometimes fragile and romantic and at other times epic and devilish. But wait, she knows how to growl also so we have the demonic gutter side also there. (…)
