BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS and HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS are proud to present HACAVITZ's cult fifth album, Nex Nihil, on vinyl LP format. One of the underground's best-kept secrets, Mexico's HACAVITZ have been pursuing an intense and challenging vision of death metal for nearly 15 years now. Having released albums on such labels as Moribund and Dark Descent, they returned to more underground-rooted auspices last year with Nex Nihil, which is now seeing its first release on vinyl. Here, the power-trio explore supremely blackened textures and more epic song structures, culminating in the unforgettable 11-minute whirlwind "Relentless Sleep." Where so many cheap carbon-copies get so much attention under the banner of "death metal," it is often that the true mavericks get unjustly overlooked, and BLOOD HARVEST endeavors to rectify this with the vinyl release of HACAVITZ's gargantuan Nex Nihil!
This is the audio equivalent of bear repellent for the weak and cowardly, and is one of the most abrasive blackened death metal albums that I have ever heard, though still relatively more melodic than the likes of Teitanblood, Altarage, or Diocletian. Do not expect very dynamic songs here, as they are all (excluding one) fast and aggressive, but are nonetheless filled with beautiful subtleties for the astute listener. Adversarial are not fucking around here, so strap in and enjoy the violence! Ippocalyptica
I look into the unblinking eye of the sun, and it looks back, flaying me of my charred flesh. Shedding that dead skin, I am reborn. Seeker of that which cannot be found. Dreamer in radiant black. Empty husk, pregnant seed, flaming despond. Dave Aftandilian
