Necrot are a band from Oakland, California that plays a very old school form of death metal with a touch of crust punk and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Labyrinth" which will be released in April by Tankcrimes.
A very heavy and raw sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and screams a few seconds later and the music is also very heavily rooted in the early 90's and also utilizes a great amount of death metal growls while the guitar riffing also brings in a great amount of morbid sounding melodies.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and only one of the songs brings in a brief use of guitar solos and leads and while the music is rooted in the past the production gives the tracks more of a modern feeling and the album sticks to a very heavy and brutal sound from the beginning to end with no soft or clean parts ever being utilized.
Necrot plays a style of death metal that is very heavy, pure and brutal in the old school tradition with a touch of crust, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and gore themes.
In my opinion Necrot are a very great sounding old school death metal b and with a touch of crust punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Consume Control" "The End" "and "The Abyss" out of 10.
