Mantus comments on the release as a definite step forward for Patria, adding that “‘Nihil Est Monastica’ is an album going through a bit fresh musical conception if compared to our previous releases. There’s no walls at all concerning our creativity on this record. We just decided to do what we had to do, naturally, without any worries about labels or rules. Something that would pleasure our own ears as real Black Metal fans, you know. We’re also mixing different influences and elements. It also has a little better production, but even still keeping that necro and lowfi characteristics of the early Black Metal sound. The cover art was signed by the great artist Costin Chioreanu (Darkthrone, Ulver, Aura Noir, Absu, etc.)”
