Necrovation - Necrovation


From: Sweden
Year: 2012
Genre: Death Metal

Welcome to my favorite old school death metal album so far this year. With some of the best riffs, chord progressions, solos and songwriting you'll hear on any DM release this year, which are just as easily informed by classic Swedish death metal as the NWOBHM, this album stands far above the troves of copycats and merely adequate. It encapsulates everything thats great about Swedish death metal (the rawness, melodicism and punk aggression) while eschewing the typical buzzsaw guitar tone and creating their own brand of necrotic misery. Seriously, I can't recommend this enough. Get it.
