"Blending post-rock, progressive rock, and even some ambient influences, Appellative strikes with aggressive guitar riffs and fluid layering to build a wall of sound, but also provides the calm before the storm.

Appellative’s more than satisfactory debut release stands tall, and even above most releases to come out this year. It is the perfect blend of creative, progressive rock with heavy emotions from happiness, excitement, and pure imagination to melancholy, abandonment, and despair. With around a half hour of music, “Nomenclature” is impressive in not only what it does musically here, but it is a glimpse of what Appellative will be with future releases, and I see a very promising future for this one-man project."
- Evan Lurie, Arctic Drones

Nomenclature is Appellative's second EP since 2012 saw the release of the acclaimed debut "Daybook."
Tracks 1-6 play out gaplessly as a 26 minute piece of music and it is advised that you listen to it as such. "Meet Me in Montauk" is included as a bonus track.

My name is Zach and Appellative has been my solo project since 2012. It sounds like progressive post-rock most of the time. Have a listen.
