NECROPHAGIA (USA/Oh): “Holocausto de la Morte” Cd 1998 Red Stream


Another good release from a veteran band. Good thrash death with a strong affinity for horror. The cover artwork, by Chas Balun, is not one of the best I have seen in my life, and the inner design is revolting, not because it spots scenes of atrocious splatter gore, but it’s a really garish, tasteless show of neon colors and horrible fonts but what the fuck, the music counts. And the music itself is rather ghastly and shifts down on slow, chilling atmospheres with Killjoy’s classic, malicious vocals more often than on “Black Blood Vomitorium”. I believe their intention was to recreate an atmospheric drape of a soundtrack for an horror movie, also since the album itself is dedicated to our dear and departed Lucio Fulci, the master of cinematic Gore? despite hard trying and lot of time consuming efforts, the disc doesn’t rise to the levels of spine chilling sickness of AUTOPSY or IMPETIGO even trying hard and heartily. There is something in the eeriness which makes this CD stand out which make me think of early VOIVOD? the old school guitar work and good use of samples add some to the whole. Good shit.
