Epos Nemo Latrocinium are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays a mixture of avant garde, experimental, drone and dark ambient and this is a review of their 2018 album "Iter Itineris" which will be released in April by Skry Recordings.
Homemade and traditional folk instruments start off the album and also takes the music more into an experimental and avant garde direction while the fast parts capture the aggression of extreme metal without using any of the traditional instruments that are present in that genre.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music also captures a low fi atmosphere at times along with some elements of avant classical and free form jazz along with the music also bringing in a great amount of tribal style percussion as well as the music getting very discordant at times.
Prepared piano's are also a very huge part of the recording and at times gives the music the atmosphere of a classic black and white film while the stringed instruments are also done in a very chaotic yet primitive fashion at times and all of the tracks sound very different from each other and operatic female vocals are also added onto the closing track.
Epos Nemo Latrocinium plays a musical style that mixes a variety of many different avant garde and experimental styles with some elements of dark ambient and drone to create a sound of their own while also keeping most of the music instrumental and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Epos Nemo Latrocinium are a very great sounding mixture of avant garde, experimental, dark ambient and drone and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Catastrophe Ignited" and "Continual Inquires Left Unanswered". 8 out of 10.
