Decibel Magazine conducted an interview with BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS.
I’m pretty sure the guys in Black Shape of Nexus are fucking with me. I mean, I’ve heard heavy music borne out of positive catharsis and even righteous abandon (Devin Townsend, Cynic, et al come to mind immediately), but B.SON sound like they’re coming from a totally different place – specifically boiling out of a bog that smells awful and tastes worse, mostly due to the rancid industrial waste pouring from a nearby factory, but enhanced by the truly evil spiritual ground that factory was built upon. When keyboardist Jan Wolf suggests that anger provides minimal inspiration for sweltering doombags like “14d” and “400H”, my face scrunches up in multiple disturbing ways. Of course, maybe I’m swayed by Malte Seidel’s vocal homicides, which threaten insanity at several junctures and actually achieve it on the simmering title track, “Negative Black”.
I got in touch with a couple band members to hear about the band and their recent work on Negative Black, which was released by Exile on Mainstream Records back in April. Read up, rock on, and nod out.
