Analyses

Metal Wani

"Out of the hordes of technical death metal bands, the music of Canadian quintet The Noumenon instantly seized my attention. Not often does one come across a band that manages to combine good progression and smooth melodies with technical death metal, and yet have a charismatic and dynamic approach to their music. And this is exactly what The Noumenon manages to encapsulate with their debut EP 'Apocrypha' [...] I’d strongly recommend this EP for people who like death metal out of the ordinary."

Unholy Maunder

"The Noumenon is something of a wallflower amongst contemporary death metal acts [...] Their sound is crisp, innovative and versatile, often exploring and pushing the boundaries of what can be called technical death metal. [...] The EP is a creative marvel. And I highly recommend this band to anyone who appreciates change, innovation and creativity. The Noumenon is a force to reckon with. And I’ve rarely seen debut releases this promising."

The Metal Archives

"Now here's something I don't come across often; meet The Noumenon, a modern, infant, progressive death metal act that is alarmingly impressive in a multitude of their particulars. Not only do they offer up a unique approach to progressive death metal, but they present occult related themes without the need to draw from religions [...] When looked at as a whole this EP can be seen as a work of art, and I really appreciate the effort these guys put into it to create something genuinely innovative and new."

Metal Storm

"When you combine some types of more extreme metal like death metal and something more progressive and melodic like this band does, it is important to have a good dynamic. The Noumenon pass that test with distinction. Their EP Apocrypha gives us technical and sophisticated metal with deep moments of clarity. The band shows that they have enough sensibility to write melodies which leave a deep-rooted mark, and are also capable of constantly adding new dimensions to their music, variety and a finesse which entangles you. This is hard-hitting metal with feeling done the right way."

We Love Metal

"[...] Listening to Apocrypha I feel like I’ve fallen for the old bait and switch routine, but in a good way. What started as fairly standard (though powerfully energetic) material suddenly gave way to a series of diamonds — music which was not only well executed, but also interesting. Not just well written, but experimental. My only complaint is that Apocrypha is too short and I want to have The Noumenon back for an encore."
