Coils of Entropy is an album full of Death Metal on the technical side from Canada-by-way-of-Dubai's Nephelium. The album is characterized by sharp changes in tempo, thrashy riffs and inventive drum beats. After the chaotic blur of opening track "Burial Ground," Coils of Entropy settles into a familiar Death Metal groove. The highlight is the song "Malediction" which features some superb guitar work from Alex Zubair and James Sawyer. The extended solos throughout the song are excellent. It also features vocalist Devlin Anderson, he of the mostly non-descript cookie monster growl, losing his shit near the end and channeling the Tasmanian Devil from the old Warner Bros. cartoons.

Coils of Entropy won't set the world on fire but it is a solid debut for Nephelium. Technical Death Metal aficionados will want to give this one a listen.
