Nomy is a solo artist from Sweden that plays a mixture of metal, alternative and hard rock and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "Psychopath".
New wave style synths start off the album along with some programmed beats and chants before adding in spoken word vocals which leads up to a harder musical direction along with a mixture of melodic vocals and aggressive screams as well as bringing in a mixture of both synth and heavy parts.
When solos and leads are added into the music they are in a more melodic metal direction an d there is also a decent mixture of both power ballads and hard tracks and in the heavier sections of the music you can hear influences from both the modern and melodic death metal genres and some of the later tracks also bring in elements of emo and punk rock.
Classical guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with the synth's bringing in traces of industrial and electronic music and as the album progresses the music starts to speed up a bit along with some semi blast beats while the main focus remains more on a melodic style of hard music.
Nomy creates a musical style that takes from the more radio orientated style of metal, alternative and hard rock and while this is not a style I listen to all the time I still feel Nomy is very good at what he is doing with his musical style, the production sounds very professional, while the lyrics cover dark themes leaning towards the bipolar side.
In my opinion Nomy is very decent sounding mixture of metal, alternative and modern hard rock and if you are a fan of this musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chaos" "Psychopath" "I Killed You A Thousand Times" and "I Hate You Diane". 7/5 out of 10.
