Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)
Thirty minutes, 15 tracks. That should tell you something right there. Nekrofilth sure aren't into epic-length songs, preferring to hit hard and fast before you realize what just hit you. The band mixes up a lot of genres like thrash, black, death and throws in a little punk vibe and it's hard not to think of a rawer, more basic Venom/Hellhammer hybrid when listening to Worm Ritual. The album has that "garage sound" that is so perfect for their style, making raw even more raw and sometimes giving the impression that this is right off a rehearsal tape. "Gutter Oil" sounds right off a mid-90s Darkthrone album, which makes it stand out a little bit here with its slower pace and simple, catchy guitars. The cover of Venom's "Poison" is also worth mentioning, making the original sound a little tame in comparison. Not pretty in the least but one hell of a headbanging journey in pure raw metal. All good friendly, violent fun.
