Truth Becomes Death

Truth Becomes Death

Disc review

Few releases deserve the title of epic. Nadja’s debut for Montreal gurus Alien8 just happens to be one of those albums. Nadja are a two-piece Toronto doom-metal symphony comprised of electro-head Aidan Baker (here in a role reversal) and his partner Leah Buckareff, plotting slow-building and scathing tributes to the over- and underlords. Songs creep along at a snail’s pace, climaxing glacially, calling on drum machines, bass, piano, flute, guitar and treated vocals, forcing sensory systems into spine-tingling overdrive.
