"Smell your evil, smell your pain, smell your sin. Feel their presence..."
Rising once more from the abyssal equator, Nephesh concocts a passionate metal fury encased within symphonic tragedies of epic proportions. "Hated by this World" is the hard-driving, soul-lacerating follow-up to their smashing debut full-length "Inter Armas Silent Leges" that was released on Nokternal Hemizphear in 2009. Now, rearing their embolden spirits to bring about an aggressive testimony to the might, sovereignty, and providential control of the Lord Most High, Nephesh does what they do best, spattering a wide musical brush stroke of darkly symphonic metal in their latest forging, "Hated by this World". Prophecy of God's wrath and unstoppable might are littered throughout the message conveyed in "Hated by this World" along with an overarching understanding that it is God who formed the world in His powerful hands, makes the plans, and calls the ultimate shots with the course of mankind, right down to each individual heart. For those of the epic metal anthem that hunger for the musical outputs of Dimmu Borgir, Dark Funeral, Behemoth, Crimson Moonlight, Divine Symphony, Grave Declaration, Antestor, and Keep of Kalessin, Nephesh's "Hated by this World" is exactly what you are looking for! Devoid of the typical satanic, heathen-propelled BS that pervades the extreme industry, Nephesh rams the unwavering banner of the Lord Jesus Christ into the hardened soil of this dark realm, ready to fight!
