An odd band, this Finnish quartet. Nespithe features impossibly obtuse song titles ("When The Sun Drank The Weight Of Water", "Raped Embalmed Beauty Sleep", to name two -- and several other titles are much longer), very low-pitched gurgled death vocals, and and a constantly changing array of riffs. Though their overall sound has traditional death metal roots, their complex arrangements and musicianship definitely make them stand out from the crowd. At times this uniqueness is quite effective, while at other times the riffs and songs tend to blur, leaving one with the feeling that perhaps a few more standard song structures would tighten up the overall effect. Nespithe was first released on No Fashion Records, then re-released on Necropolis, Pavement, and Repulse. The Repulse version also contains four tracks from their 4 Instructive Tales demo which shows a rougher side of the band. The band broke up soon after Nespithe's release, briefly reformed in 2005 before disbanding again, and then regrouped for a second time in 2014.
