Review: Nothing Lies Beyond - Fragile Reality


Nothing Lies Beyond is a melodeath combo from Tel Aviv, Israel. The band formed back in 2011, and self-released their first full-length, entitled “Fragile Reality”, in June this year.

The 32 minutes play-time kick off with an instrumental intro, a mix between demonic and melodic. A great atmosphere is generated here and definitely wets the appetite for what is there to come. And then we travel back in time… not literally of course, but sound-wise. Awesome 90's Gothenburg melodic death metal is blasting through the speakers. The guys pack all the essences of the genre in very tight, short songs, what works out perfectly and keeps you on the hook for the entire 30+ minutes. The songs are very fun to listen to, “Lost” and “Fading Behind False Eyes” being my personal favorites. Latter also comes with some acoustic guitar soli. Another great part is the mixing of the album: every instrument is very clearly perceivable, and not chaos, but a great harmony emerges from it.

Conclusion: a very tight, greatly produced first album of these guys. No weaknesses, only sad part is that it’s too short! A surefire band to keep an eye on, especially if the guys keep their sound the way it is now. A must-listen too for every fan of Dark Tranquillity and the early In Flames. 10/10.
