NECROBLASPHEME

"Destination: Nulle Part" (Agonia Records; 2008)

Reviewed by Metal Mark

I received this disc a while back and it sat on my stack for awhile before I finally hauled it out. I think the giant floating tar-like mass and the simple logo had me thinking it was going to be some sort of a progressive metal effort. Now I wish that I had given this one a spin earlier.

Necroblaspheme hail from France and play some killer death metal. This is classic death metal with its roots in the late 80s-early 90s styles of the genre. They crank out choppy riffs and blend in an excellent use of odd beats. They have an amazing grasp on how and when to move and vary the tones and pace. The music is low and deep when needed and they switch gears and sink their teeth into some brutal riffs.

Necroblaspheme are creative and they go beyond the usual retro-death metal style that has been common in recent years. Every member of the band is solid and they knock out some incredible and ferocious blasts of speed and heaviness.

This style isn't completely new, but this band are certainly well above the curve in the songwriting and playing departments. My only regret is that I didn't play this disc sooner.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
