The Swiss melodic black metal band’s fifth full-length since 2019, Triade III: Nyx is a succinctly elegant display of power and class, a paring down, tightening-up and condensation of the forceful yet nimble style the band are renowned for. As with each part of the Melmoth trilogy, Aara have pushed themselves towards a peerless realm: a suite of emotionally taut songs in which sublimated choirs, disembodied voices and myriad otherworldly textures preserve atmosphere while swarming, hyper-lyrical guitars and pounding jackhammer percussion provide Industrial-level tensile strength. The Melmoth Triade trilogy is based on the gothic novel, Melmoth The Wanderer, by Charles Maturin.
