True Nihilist is The Hope Conspiracy’s latest, and possibly greatest, recorded effort to date. From the first seconds of opener “In The Shadow Of God,” it is apparent that something wicked has awoken. With a rhythm section sounding like the beating heart of an animal about to pounce on its tender prey, the electricity they collectively create hangs in the air throughout the release, making hairs stand on end before bursting out with their
now trademark rage and intensity. Shockingly violent, this inhuman pace continues through the next ripper “Greed Taught...”, until the epic closer “Dismal Tide” crashes down as emotional debris from the fury. All in all, the three masterful tracks that make up True Nihilist are The Hope Conspiracy in true form, truly untamable.
Silencing the naysayers, this beast is back.
