NECROT - Blood Offerings
Uncompromising death metal vibe here from a band that's in the Bay Area (Oakland, CA). These guys know how to write some heavy stuff and on purpose. The hate just flows and the energy of the album is pretty high. Some serious in your face death metal that's well played-out. I got into this album right away. It was easy, their guitars the riffs especially suck you in as a listener. The vocals go well with the music, it's not screaming or growling, it's low-end with a tinge a bit like what's featured on the new Exhumed (vocal-wise). It blends perfectly into the guitars and production sound. The mixing was excellent on here.
