Mini-Album Review: Necromutilator – Ripping Blasphemy (Terror From Hell Records)
Necromutilator will release a mini-album called, Ripping Blasphemy on April 1st 2017 via Terror From Hell Records. It’ll be available on 12″ black vinyl (with silkscreen design printed on the B side) and Cassette (limited to 150 copies on black tape).
Ripping Blasphemy is a mini-album that spits & snarls its way through 4 tracks & for 15 minutes it assaults the senses with its death/black metal sound. Uncompromisingly nasty, it’s the kind of music designed to annoy the neighbours. The kind of music that sees parents covering their child’s ears & priests blessing themselves when they hear it.
If you like your metal fast, heavy & brutal…this is perfect for you. The opening song, Ripping Blasphemy comes charging out of the gates with all the balance of a drunk who has been on a 3-day non-stop bender.
It’s difficult to really take much away from it as it’s played at such a furious pace with high emphasis on darkness. Things improve though when it slows down. The guitars take centre stage & it delves deeper into the black metal sound.
Exhorted Sacrifice is an improvement though. This time the pace matches the riffs far better & the vocals sound even more venomous. That upswing continues with Unholy Semen of Doom, an absolute belter of a death metal song. Filled with thunderous drum beats, mind-melting guitar work & short enough that it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome.
The final song, Gate to Eternal Possession finishes things off in a medley of intense noise. The drumming is at its best here & it’s tempo changes really make the difference. It’s a fine finish to an EP that needs several listens to really enjoy especially if you’re well-versed in this death/black metal combined sound.
