Review: NAAKHUM – “Backward in the Times, Part II” (Belgrade, Serbia)

Cool metal fusion from Serbia. Naakhum mixes eastern music with tight death metal and electronic drums. The drums reminds me of the infamous french duo Carnival in Coal.

What I did like in this band is how they blend all those off-metal influences like middle-eastern music and Serbian folk music. The vocals are pretty interesting too and singing is this foreign language (for Brazilian ears) makes it sound even more exotic.

What I didn’t like was the production. Althought the drum sequencing is nice, I miss the bass in everything. It could sound way bigger than it is.

With a nice production this band could make a stunning album. And I’m looking foward for it!
