ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"He combines elements of acoustic guitar-led alt-folk balladry with his powerful rock vocals, melancholic gothic atmosphere, classical symphonic strings, and punk rock attitude. It’s a potent, diverse, and unusual brew – unexpected, but highly welcome in a world that rewards ephemeral pop fizz and heavy shots of rock."
Delusions of Adequacy

"Meet Nic Nassuet and Catrina Grimm, the king and queen of gothic folk. The pair bring all of their theatre experience, writing, and musical stage presence out to play on Nassuet’s latest project Eleutherios."
Scallywag Magazine

"Nic Nassuet is superb on all levels that he needs to be. He is an absolutely first rate songwriter, moreover he is a truly unique performer .I couldn’t for the life of me, easily imagine any of his songs being performed by any other artist but himself; probably because he is an exceptional vocalist -singing softly to a full-throated bellow, in an almost impossibly gravelly but pure voice -that often borders on omnipotence and unorthodox phrasing."
Jamsphere

"This is serious music for serious thought."
Indie Band Guru

"“She Rides Moonlight” is the type of song Jim Morrison always wanted to make, slowed down with the focus on emotion. Nassuet makes it happen."
New York Music Examiner

"If Edgar Allen Poe was in a band, he’d be in one with Nic Nassuet."
Review Fix

"There is a tendency in audiences to try to assimilate and compare something powerful and original to another – to grasp or hold onto the known. But with Nic Nassuet, this tendency won’t hold. Nassuet rewrites the singer-songwriter user’s manual like Ritchie Havens, Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake and other legendary artists did before him."
Jamsphere

"All of our hearts hold some darkness and some solitary pain, but Nic has found a way to make that beautiful."
Sergeant Sparrow

"[...] his album is stunning, possibly among the finest pieces of modern American music."
Jamsphere Music Magazine, Print Edition

"Nic’s music possesses a more complex and intricate spirit than much of the music heard today."
NeuFutur Magazine

"Nassuet is able to put a definable face on the Gothic Rock genre for anyone who either had no idea what it was or had prior predispositions. Eerily charming, soft and silky, yet powerful and dark, Nassuet’s work would fit in perfectly in a video game the likes of “Castlevania” or “Silent Hill.”"
Review Fix

"After a few listens, you’ll sing along, wondering when you, indeed, went goth."
Review Fix

"Nic is able to move from near silence to crafting a guitar line that will have listeners hanging on every subsequent note."
NeuFutur Magazine

"What’s truly hot about their music is the way they approach story. You want to listen and keep listening to Nic Nassuet and the lady Grimm.
And that’s quite a feat in a world sans attention spans and bereft of the art of performance."
Scallywag Magazine

"In short, Eleutherios is an amazing album, both for its innovation, and for the sheer beauty of its songs. A wondrous, glowing record of uncommon passion and depth, it ranks with the true greats of recent years."
Jamsphere Music Magazine, Print Edition

"Unique and otherworldly"
NeuFutur Magazine

"Creating a distinct atmosphere and focus is often the elusive hallmark of great albums. For many artists, this means painstakingly crafting new worlds while Nic Nassuet manages the same effect through efforts less looming and obvious. Instead it’s as if the entirety of his full length Eleutherios exists within a bleak December field blanketed in bitterly cold snow and blood spilled by fallen soldiers of a civil war. Nassuet’s gloomy gypsy goth style finds life not so much in this field but rather the traces of ghosts and residual events tied to it like realities superimposed on one another.

We can almost hear these overlapping realities twirling divinely in the ethereally misty backing vocals stirring the opening of “Cross and Crown” before acoustic guitar resonating with the crispness of autumn leaves finds itself swept aloft in currents of violin saturated with mythology, forging the perfect pedestal for Nassuet’s own domineering vocal confidence. When delving into black pools of charged emotion, his vocal control is such that passion relinquishes itself to it. Even when belting out the nuances of tragedies, the details that make aspects of the lyrics so real, his command never once falters."
Magic Monster Records

"[...] pretty much a subtle little masterpiece of acoustic-based brilliance"
Short and Sweet NYC/LA
