Background/Info: Nohycit is a Bolivian dark-electro project driven by ‘Ferry Nohycit’ who you may know from his involvement with Adeonesis. This is the first official full length by Nohycit, which has been released in 2018 (!) and this after a hiatus of several years.
Content: Nohycit is what I would call a ‘classical’ dark-electro project. The sounds and influences are pretty familiar; driven by hard kicks, high resonating melody lines, dark atmospheres and harsh, distorted vocals in Spanish. There’re 15 songs on the album featuring a surprising acoustic version and a collaborative song together with Adeonesis.
+ + + : If you like a hard-pumping, but stereotypical dark-electro album, you definitely have to discover “Anomico”. The songs are accomplished and there’s a great progression in the tracklist. Songs such as the title track, “Objecion De Consiencia”, “Sin Miedo A Sufrir” and “Sin Miedo Y Credo” will show you the potential of this project. I also have to say a word about the pretty cool artwork of this album, which once more confirms that a physical release is so much more than streaming platforms!
– – – : The acoustic version of “Sin Miedo A Sufrir” is not exactly a successful edit. If you don’t like ‘clichés’ you better avoid listening to this work.
Conclusion: Nohycit doesn’t bring anything new to a music genre, which is stagnating for too long now, but it’s a damn cool work. So f*** clichés and simply enjoy the sound of Nohycit.
Best songs: “Anomico”,“Objecion De Consiencia”, “Sin Miedo A Sufrir”, “Sin Miedo Y Credo”, “Hostil”, “Postrado En Mi Dolor”.
