Necrot formed in 2011, and since then they have put out three demos and a compilation album. Six years after formation, these death metal heathens released their debut full length titled Blood Offerings. This release is eight tracks long full of nothing but old-school death metal inspired tunes that are covered in as much blood and blasphemy as you could possibly want. With an old-school neck twisting groove, Necrot created something that sounds as though it belongs in the late eighties and early nineties era of death metal. While Necrot takes the tried and true approach, they do add their own sound to it to make this bludgeoning death sound their own.
Without so much as an introduction, Necrot blast straight through your speakers with blasting drums, contorted riffs and zombie like growls that make your flesh peel from bone. Through and through, Blood Offerings is death metal and nothing else. This is straight up uncompromising and unrelenting death metal down to the bones. There aren’t any breaks, no interludes or intros to any of their tracks. Necrot rolls through eight songs without stopping or letting their blood soaked knife off of your throat.
Blood Offerings is a rumbling and menacing death machine that culls, decapitates and aims for nothing other than your demise. Each of the eight tracks on this record are blood and entrails soaked as they spurt blood and fling left over body parts. Blood Offerings is a sadistic an unrelenting blast from death metal’s past. From front to back, Blood Offerings is a ripping and head banging good listen that provides you with all of the death metal brutality that you could possibly be looking for.
This new release is a cohesive and well put together effort that really ends up show casing Necrot’s abilities. Over six years it seems as though they have honed their craft damn near perfectly ultimately to create an album that is as ripping and sharp as Blood Offerings. There are no frills, there isn’t anything that is over done or out of place as what you get is eight solid and sordid tracks of nothing but death.
Blood Offerings is for all death metal fans, but old-school death metal fans specifically. If you are looking for a sound that is older with some new death metal influences, Necrot certainly is the band that is the answer to that rotten death metal fix. Overall, Blood Offerings is a solid record; one that gets under your skin and one that you can head bang to feverishly and often, and not to mention, this is a great record for a debut full length.
