Necrot - Into the Labyrinth

Cover by Lukas Krieg, logo by David Torturdød

The second demo from Necrot is available on their Bandcamp. Into the Labyrinth is punishing and pummeling old school Death Metal that goes straight for the jugular. The songs are more varied than on their first demo has, another example of "old school" not necessarily meaning primitive. The production on the first demo was crusty, but had a certain punkish crispness. You'll hear none of that here; Necrot moved from the garage and deep down into the infernal dungeon. The sound is certainly not original, but delightfully rumbling and fuzzy; and you're still able to pick out some (not all) of the actual playing. Necrot shoots read hot Death Metal straight into your accepting veins.
