Bay Area death metal/punk trio Necrot is finally releasing the new crushing full length “Mortal” which promises to deliver an overdose of ferocious grooves channeling strong old school vibes.
“Your Hell” opens the album with the raw energy of the galloping guitar riffs that immediately channel major dismal feelings foreshadowing the dominant presence of the brooding dynamics crafted by a fierce rhythmic ensemble and accompanied by visceral growls.
Darkness prevails on “Asleep Forever” as the band confidently conjures a dreadful sonic realm where an obscure death metal force demands massive guitar riffs and ruthless drumming to successfully create twisted rhythmic patterns enriched by an intense solo.
The strength of “Sinister Will” comes from the faster rhythmic rampage that highlights the fundamental role of the unrestrained guitar work effortlessly shifting from ruthless riffage to an extensive solo which offers a generous dosage of shredding.
There is a sense of decay lingering throughout the title track as the lugubrious guitar tonalities can craft some intriguing darkened leads yet the monumental rhythmic section continues to evoke a malevolent death metal inspiration and the imposing growls seem to emerge from a forgotten abyss.
Even if Necrot are undoubtedly devoted to a classic death metal approach “Mortal” tends to showcase elaborate songwriting skills that definitely focus on the excellent guitar work and the spiteful mood.
