Apocalyptic Necromancy

Rated 4.18/5 (83.64%) (11 Votes)

This band was formed in 1988 but only released their first album in 2009, and this here is their second one. Goreaphobia – another band name that led me to predict the worst – is old school Death Metal to the bone. Slightly decipherable harsh growls are a perfect fit for the precise, razor-sharp riffage found here. These guys play it pedal-to-the-metal, so you'll most assuredly near a visit to your chiropractor after headbanging to the full album. This is fast, yes, but in an old school way, as opposed to the barrage of noise often found in faster modern Death Metal albums. This is pretty much Thrash on the nastiest steroids, complete with swirling solos and enough catchiness to make the songs stick in your head. They may not have picked the best band name since it may be a turn off for old schoolers who hate "anything gore", but hopefully a few out there will be agreeably surprised like I was. We can always use more Death Metal like this.
