BECOONTS OF DOCKNESS

WHILST MOST BANDS SEEM TO MELLOW WITH AGE AND GRADUALLY SOFTEN THE EDGES OFF THEIR SOUND, FRENCH MANIACS NECRO WRETCH HAVE DONE EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE, WITH NEW ALBUM ‘SATANIC SLAVERY’ FIRING OUT SOME OF THEIR MOST RABID, EXTREME AND FEROCIOUS MATERIAL YET. GUITARIST/VOCALIST VLAD EXPLAINS ALL…

NECROWRETCH

It started with a major promise and ended up as a mess resulting from a gigantic misunderstanding. See, most people (including Century Media who signed them for their debut album) initially saw Necrowretch as the French equivalent of Repugnant, Death Breath or, say, Degial; basically that whole new generation of young and hungry death metallers determined to take the genre back to its natural habitat and devoid of its more polished modernity. And in a way, at least based on the band’s initial output, it made sense, with early works such as the ‘Putrefactive Infestation’ and ‘Now You’re In Hell’ EPs going for that raw and straight-to-the-point mentality one who could find in the first Nihilist demos. But by the time their first proper album ‘Putrid Death Sorcery’ hit the shops in January 2013, we were now far away from the Swedeath clone machine and into something way darker and chaotic sounding. And it was just the start…

About Terrorizer Magazine

I bloody love The Obsessed’s new album – it’s packed with grooves and riffs and isn’t one-dimensional in the slightest. I recall getting psyched when Relapse announced they had signed the band and since the news landed, plotting with the label about putting Wino and his band on the cover. It seems like aeons since they recorded the album last summer, but as Wino explains in our cover feature, a lot has been going on since that recording session. Go and read all about it now! And if you haven’t heard the album, please go check it out – it’s well worth the twenty-plus year wait since ‘The Church Within’. I always remember Wino and co. sticking out like a sore thumb when I saw them in Nottingham’s Rock City opening for Prong and Life Of Agony in support of that album – a sea of audience confusion greeted them, but the drive and honesty that oozed from the trio that night had a long-lasting impression on me, and I cannot wait to see them on our shores again soon, I hope. So, as always enjoy the issue in your hands. Every month Kez and the writing crew pour blood, sweat and tears into the issue to make it the best we can. It’s tough times out there, we have no crowd-funding hype machines behind us, just passion, belief and, frankly, stubbornness. And of course, enjoyment in the music. Take care and see you next month!
