Nucleus Torn - Knell
Hmmm, chocolate, watches, mountains and Heidi (oooh, how I love the Heidi) are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Swiss. But what if I told you that you can also think about doom, classical or folk? Well it’s all of the above, it’s metal from Switzerland. With the album Knell, Nucleus Torn releases their fifth album.  
 
Nucleus Torn delivers an album that features a shitload of instruments. There are of course the basic guitars, bass and drums. But they also use a lot of classical instruments such as the cello, violin, flute and piano.
 
There is somewhat of a mystery to this album. The songs are named I, II, III and IV, which shows that it’s all about the experience you as the listener should have, while you’re listening to this album. The first two songs start off with a very long intro, almost epic or celtic.
 
Nucleus Torn has two vocalists, one female and one male. To be honest I am not that impressed with the male version. It just seems like his vocals are not suitable for this type of music.  
 
I personally think that they could have done a better job with this album. Musically it’s decent, but the vocals need improvement.
