As a former punk rock frontman, Nic Nassuet has picked up a lot of things in his career and he has learned them well once you listen to Eleutherios. Described as folk/Goth, the album will absolutely floor you with it powerful, somber vocals and equally powerful acoustic music. Goth and acoustic don’t normally go together but Nic manages to take the two and create a very unique, eclectic sounding album.
Even if folk or Goth aren’t your thing that shouldn’t stop you from giving this album a listen. The songwriting, detailing plenty of darkness in the universe, while gloomy won’t leave you feeling melancholy at all. The music is just so magnetic that it’ll draw you in to want to listen more these nine solid tracks. The standout track, “She Rides Moonlight” is an emotionally-based number but one won’t be able to stop hearing the similarities between the music on here and on Led Zeppelin’s “Going To California,” two vastly different tracks with very opposite tales, yet Nic still makes it sound original enough that it stands on its own as the album’s titular track.
In Short, Eleutherios is an album we highly endorse for its musical and songwriting sophistication.
