I'm surprised I'd never heard of these French black metallers before as they've been around since 2008 and this is their fourth full-length album, with a few demos, EPs and even a compilation and a live album in that period.

Necrowretch play some punishing blackened death metal that has nothing to envy the bigger names in the genre. It's fine-tuned, precise and heavy as fuck and carry enough rawness and brutality to be the perfect soundtrack for the end of a bad day at work. Some bands with similar songwriting sometimes try too much and something gets lost in translation, but Necrowretch achieve a near-perfect balance of clean and raw sound. The atmosphere can be pretty daunting at times and that really draws you in, but they do have those pedal-to-the-metal tracks for when you just want to fuck yourself up headbanging. Good stuff.
