Necrovorous are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school form of death metal with touches of grindcore and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Plains Of Decay" which will be released in September by Dark Descent Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and spoken word parts a few seconds later along with the solos and leads also bringing in a great amount of dark sounding melodies and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's while the music also brings in a great amount of d beat and grindcore elements along with some grim screams also being utilized at times and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can be heard on a couple of tracks and they also bring in instrumental and a couple of the songs are long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Necrovorous creates another recording that remains true to the old school death metal style of previous releases while also mixing in elements of grindcore and doom metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover gore themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Necrovorous and if you are a fan of old school death metal with elements of grindcore and doom metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cherish The Sepulture" "Psychedelic Tribe Of Doom" "Misery Loves Dead Company" and "The Noose Tightens". 8 out of 10.
