Nomman Erytz - _Nomman Erytz_
(Insidious Poisoning Records, 2007)
by: Quentin Kalis (5 out of 10)
Nomman Erytz leave few clues as to their identity on this CD. The booklet consists of a few desolate warehouses, hidden in shadows; songs remain untitled; and there are no details as to the recording or band members, not even so much as the customary hails. Such emptiness not only suggests a low budget, but mirrors their musical approach towards the blackest minimalist ambient, even more so than label mates Dapnom.

Rumbling drones and a few effects such as wind blowing and an occasional burst of static cacophony form the basis of an album that more likely than not is the result of an improv session in the studio. However, the result is less than successful; their minimalist approach tends towards the simple rather than the simplistic and fails to evoke the required mood. It does not send a chill down the spine or create a sense of dread, only a sense of ennui. A pity, as there is a dearth of truly decent black ambient.
