Review


This is fucking kick-ass. I expected this to be Black/Death but instead it is an unapologetic ripping assault of old-fashioned Thrash. Nekromantheon are drinking deep from the chalice of early Slayer and Onslaught, forging a steel-smoking razor-fanged sound that is pure, unadulterated Thrash. Chugging riffs, flailing leads, ruthless heaviness and raving speed make this a pleasure to listen to for its entire too-short length. This is authentic Thrash mayhem with nothing else mixed in to fuck it up, and its like finding a diamond in the shitpile. I haven't enjoyed a Thrash album this much since Sauron's blistering Thrash Assault, and neither have you.
