4 stars "Nomadic" is an EP release by US,San Francisco based technical/progressive death metal act Fallujah. The EP was released through Unique Leader Records in April 2013. Itīs the successor to the bandīs debut full-length studio album "The Harvest Wombs (2011)". Fallujah have existed since 2007 and released a couple of demos and the "Leper Colony (2009)" EP before signing to Unique Leader Records for the release of their debut album.

The music on "Nomadic" pretty much continues the sci-fi themed technical/progressive metal style of "The Harvest Wombs (2011)". Fallujah are still pretty unique sounding within the genre because of how they combine technical/progressive death metal parts with atmospheric (at times ambient) synth heavy parts. The technical level of playing is high, the sound production clear and powerful, and the songwriting is strong too.

"Nomadic" features 3 tracks and a full playing time of 18:11 minutes. "The Dead Sea" and "Venom Upon the Blade", which bookend the EP, are both in the style described above while "Silent" is an atmospheric ambient track. The whole thing reeks of sci-fi atmosphere, which is a type of mood Fallujah are really successful in creating. My issues with the vocals on "The Harvest Wombs (2011)", which I felt were slightly generic, have been solved. This time around the growls are convincing and intelligible. The higher pitched screams also work to great effect.

Overall "Nomadic" shows development of the bandīs sound and the promise I heard on "The Harvest Wombs (2011)", is even more apparent here. A full-length release of this quality and I think the band will have fullfilled that promise. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.
