Nicodemus - _Tales of the Lovelorn & Necromantic_
(Dark Throne Music, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (5 out of 10)
Listening to Nicodemus' offering, I couldn't help but hear work of Cradle of Filth, most notably their latest offering _Midian_. While _Midian_ is a great record, I am having trouble digesting _Tales..._ for the sheer fact that it comes across as a CoF clone. While the band experiments with some cool keyboard work, softly sung vocals and some bizarre industrial-tinged arrangements, it is hard to drop the thought that they are just rehashing CoF and the numerous other modern black metal bands ravaging the black metal scene (Dimmu Borgir, etc.). Place a red flag on Nicodemus and their offering, as most black metal fans will say exactly what I am implying with this review: "This is nothing new. I've heard this before."
