Natron are an Italian death metal band, being billed as a technical death metal act. Sure, Natron's brand of death metal is quite technical but it's a far cry from the infernal blasting of acts such as Fleshgod Apocalypse, or the sweep picking madness of Necrophagist. This is technical in the sense that it is very well played, the level of musicianship is quite advanced and calculated but doesn't sound ridiculous and/or impossible. The production is quite modern, with precise machine gun drumming and an agreeable guitar tone. The blast beating is a far cry from the tin can sounds of some of the brutal bands, which is certainly pleasing to this reviewer's ears. For the most part, Rot Among Us is an enjoyable album, and certainly very agreeable. There are no glaring bad points, however there is nothing that really stands out about this. Fans of death metal fan will surely find enjoyment, particularly those who like it well played. There are a lot of quality guitar solos that will please the shredders out there too. All in all this is a good effort, although still a ways away from awesome.
