Leave it to Memento Mori to unearth the finest from the underground. Death metal band Necroven from Spain have conjured up their latest and it's just what you think it sounds like looking at the stunning hand-painted Joe Petagno artwork (Vader, Krisiun, Incantation) - dark, festering, cryptic death metal. The music seethes with unmitigated fury, with Necroven churning out sick, earth-rumbling tunes, the air reeking of malice and anger, and there being enough friction to set things afire. Fans of Morbid Angel, Incantation, Immolation, Sadistic Intent and Dead Congregation will find a new favourite in Necroven.
Mastered at the infamous Resonance Sound Studio by Dan Lowndes (Cruciamentum, Grave Miasma), everything is perfect in essence and this is the second coming of death metal that is pure and untainted by trends.
