Gonoreas, Kess'khtak, Lykhaeon: these are the bands from the land of Emmental that have been hosted on these pages during this now dying year. Today, I must add another band into that list since now we are going to talk about an old-school death metal act coming from Bern, the city that can be considered as the capital of Switzerland. Well, that band, born in 2003, is named Nihilo (is this moniker a homage to the pioneers of the Swedish death metal Nihilist?), and the here reviewed "Doom" is their third album, which has been released by the excellent Spanish label Art Gates Records. And let me say already that "Doom" is veeeery good!
