A classic metal album.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious (Audio CD)
You'll notice that whenever a metal fan compiles a list of their favourite albums,Necrotism nearly always pops up.The reason being that it is one of the classics of the death metal genre.
On this album,Bill Steer and Mike Ammott's guitar work truly shines and their guitar sound is unmistakable but always fresh.Jeff Walker's screams and growls send shivers down spines and the drum work is executed perfectly.
It's a harsh album to a listener.It's not the type of music that anyone can listen to.Aurally rough and thematically disgusting to some (deals with death/murder.That type of thing) but maybe that's what makes it such a treasure.Who knows?Put simply,there isn't a bad track on here.It just shines and is a wonderful example to us all that British metal can truly produce classics.Brutal and raw,this is not one for the faint of heart.
