The Shiva Hypothesis is also a black metal band from Twente, The Netherlands, and they sure know a thing or two (or three in this case) about making an impact. With a strong do-it-yourself attitude, these guys started to pave their way through the world of extreme music. Inspired by blackened deities like Gorgoroth, Immortal, Emperor, Behemoth and Death they come up with a three-track demo which is actually quite delicious.
These three tracks, highlighting in the massive 'Praedormitium', are drenched in absolute darkness. There is something haunting, something terrifying about this ep, something that reminds me a lot of those old days of black metal. Yet, The Shiva Hypothesis like to throw in some old school thrash and some modern day extremities. That results in quite complex songs, even though they seem harsh and simple at first.
'Maze Of Delusion' seems to come directly from one of those old 'World Domination' compilations. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I'd see this band appear on some of today's most interesting compilations. These guys have done a very good job with these three songs. I'm already curious for a full-length which seems to come up in the near future. When that album is out, you better get ready for a massive impact.
