Taphos Nomos are a band from Pennsylvania that plays an atmospheric mixture of death and doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Weest Of Everything Lies Death" which was released on cassette by Caligari Records.
Distorted reverb starts off the demo before going into a very raw and fast death metal direction that also uses growling vocals and blast beats and you can also hear melodies in the bands musical style and the songs are very heavily rooted in the early 90's style of doom/death metal and some parts of the songs also bring in a small amount of clean singing.
All 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the slower sections bring in a great amount of doom metal elements and when synths are utilized they give the songs more of an atmospheric feeling and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Taphos Nomos goes back to the early 90's style of doom/death metal and also brings back in some of the atmospheric elements of that era and also take them into a darker direction to create a musical sound of their own, the production sounds very dark, heavy and old school while the lyrics cover Geology, Taphonomy and Death themes.
In my opinion Taphos Nomos are a very great sounding dark, heavy, old school and atmospheric mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Swallowed In Boiling Kaolinite". 8 out of 10.
