Debut Album “Fragile Reality”

Reviews

If recently you have ever thought to yourself “damn, I want a brand new band to put a debut album that is some kick ass melodic death metal” then you are in fucking luck as Nothing Lies Beyond’s upcoming debut album, “Fragile Reality”, fits those requirements perfectly! The vocals off of this have a real guttural sound to them while they still maintain a good amount of melody that had a fantastic feel that carried on for all 30+ minutes of “Fragile Reality”. In each track there were brutal guitars that had great hooks and riffs to them that would get any death metal fan into it, but then they would suddenly shift to a really nice acoustic guitar which made this album feel so much more atmospheric and complex the more I listened to them. The drums had a phenomenal beat that brought an absolutely great energy into the mix and it really makes you wanna head bang if you’re any sort of death metal fan who likes it heavy and fast. Overall, though, this is a more than amazing start for Nothing Lies Beyond as “Fragile Reality” is a real punch to the face as it tears up your ears. This is melodic death metal done right and I’ve no doubt anyone else who loves death metal and hears this album will agree with me when this beast drops. Headbanger Reviews

Fragile Reality” achieved to pay my attention from the very first spin. In my humble opinion, the thing that impressed me the most here is the guitar work; the guitar duo of Guy Elberg and Elad Pakado generously offer some really interesting guitar lines that are ‘heavy to the bone’ with furious and aggressive riffs but, at the same, time they enrich their sound with inspired melodies. The sound overall is, also, filled with a ‘modern’ and fresh approach and makes the final result very attractive. They manage to ‘put’ every now and then some acoustic parts in many songs that are givin’ an extra flavor. The rhythm section is tight and the vocal abilities of the lead singer, Ido Asa does not getting tired. Bottom line is that Nothing Lies Beyond comes with a really interesting debut album that achieves to balance between the classic death metal sound of the 80’s and todays modern melodic death metal scene. For the fans of this particular scene, “Fragile Reality” is a ‘safe’ buy, no doubt ’bout that! For the rest of the true metalheads, ‘Fragile Reality’ is an album that includes all the necessary aggressive riffs, solos, screams, attitude and melodies for your daily. Heavy Paradise

Hailing from Tel Aviv, Isreal, Nothing Lies Beyond is a melodic death metal band that were formed in 2011. The album Fragile Reality is a 31:54 long album that starts and ends with all that is melodic, brutal and fast.

To be honest, we did not expect much from this five piece band who is releasing their debut album, but our opinions were very quickly changed when the music started. After just the second track we could not believe that these guys have not yet released an album previously, then again, they have only been around for about four years!The guys from Nothing Lies Beyond have some serious skills and surprised us throughout the whole album!

Opening with a nice crisp guitar solo, this sets the mood for melodic death metal that will certainly entertain the masses. Following the smooth flow of Guy Elberg, Elad Pakado and Alon Gani, on the bass, through each track is a breeze and certainly worth turning up the volume a bit, not to mention the acoustic sound popping up every now and then which creates a whole new mood in those few seconds of the track.

What is death metal without fast paced drumming to get you in the mood for a major headbanging session? This is splendidly executed by drummer Ariel Lior throughout the album and gets the heart racing and the head bopping without any thought of it! What grabbed our attention was the intricate use of the cymbals that filled out the overall sound superbly.

The amazing vocal capacity displayed by Ido Asa will captivate the ears completely. Splendid guttural vocalization makes for a good listen even to those who are not that in to Melodic Death Metal or Death Metal in general.

These blokes hit the nail on the head with the great composition of this album, we expect nothing less than great things to come from Nothing Lies Beyond in the future.
