5.0 classicColonelWang | April 2nd 13

Fallujah has refined their signature "spacey death metal" sound on this small release, and they have done a successful job; this EP is literally perfect. Even "Silent", the beautiful interlude in its ambient, hypnotic atmosphere, serves as a bridge between the two relentless yet serene tracks. Their wide range of influences is made apparent on this release and if this is the sound they plan to pursue on their sophomore album, Fallujah will get a ton of deserved attention.

4.5 superbnlove13 | April 6th 13

Beginning to fully realize the self-applied "atmospheric death metal" label, Fallujah has
taken a snapshot of themselves in transition. And by all accounts they succeed in taking a
leap into the unknown. While "The Dead Sea" and "Venom Upon the Blade" exhibit a mesmerizing
blend of atmosphere and technicality, the group's songwriting abilities are what set the EP
apart. Nomadic displays a rare knack for progression, seamlessly integrating complex leads
and rhythms with lush interludes reminiscent of the likes of Isis (due in no small part to
the appearance of Byanca Munoz, whose airy vocals recall Isis' Oceanic), in a manner that
leaves the listener with a genuine sense of awe and heightened emotion. The EP's only
weakness is its ambient interlude "Silent", which, while enjoyable, overstays its welcome by
a couple minutes, particularly in anticipation of the brilliant concluding track.
Nonetheless, the sonic course that Fallujah has plotted for themselves on Nomadic will no
doubt bring them tremendous recognition and success. If the next full-length continues the
evolution evident here, the group will find itself firmly among the underground metal elite.

Fallujah takes a huge step forward on Nomadic and the execution is brilliant, aside from some questionable drum production. My only issue is that out of the three tracks on this EP, "Silent" is pretty much skip-worthy ambient nonsense. I don't think it would have killed the band to add another "real" song to the track list. Of the two remaining songs, there are a ton of influences on them from all genres of metal. As long as Fallujah remain on this path, their next LP is sure to get them some well deserved attention.

The middle track is completely unnecessary; a strictly ambient song in an EP this short seems out of place. The other two songs are pretty good though.

4.0 excellentManintheBox | May 1st 13

Honestly this is just a phenomenal accomplishment for these guys and really a statement from Fallujah about where they see their sound heading on their next full length album. Believe me when I say its an overall exciting and quite original statement as well. The addition of even more ambient atmospheres and even the completely ambient track Silent point to Fallujah being the possible new front runners of technical death metal and Atmospheric death metal that they seem to be currently pioneering along with Ulcerate. This is still an EP and wasn't really long enough to warrant a 4.5 but believe me when I say that this is a really strong 4 and anyone who is a fan of progressive death metal as well as glorious atmospheres needs to give this a spin. Check out Venom Upon the Blade m/!

Well hellooooo...what happened here? BTW the ambient song is amazing and the two heavier
songs that surround it are just pure bliss.

3.2 goodJacob R. STAFF | April 14th 13

Maybe I'm not hearing the brilliance here, but a lot of this release just feels like empty atmospherics with chugging galore. Don't get me wrong-- this isn't a bad release, by any means-- I just don't quite understand the appeal behind it.

3.5 greatTheNotrap | April 13th 13

More melodic and atmospheric than "The Harvest Wombs", Fallujah give us a little taste of what's to come.
