Italian fivesome Necrospell got their debut album out on Ukrainian label GrimmDistribution in November 2018 and the fusion between death and thrash metal in their sound, with a slight black-ish touch, is well made, making you show the thumbs up sign while the album's on. Vocalist Nuclearchgoat (aka Luciano Summaria) sounds very much like a cross between Glen Benton (Deicide) and Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth) when the songs are more thrash metal-based than death metal (like in Polish Vader's case, for example). The band relies on a technical and often fast playing style which has enough hooks, melody and pretty spot-on solo work. I really like the guitar work on this album: it's thoroughly riff-laden, nicely supported by insane drumming of Attilio HC. On "Kiss of Death," they tend to remind me of some of Dissection's melodic, blackened thrash heritage.

There are a lot of good moments on Awakening of Tyrants, so these Italian lads should be proud of their debut album.
