The Plague

What still with us? Here is another album of songs to leave the land of the living. Got a suicide pact in the works? Call them all over, here is the disc to get it done with, stop procrastinating.

Necronoclast is back for their debut release for Moribund and second full length overall. Same formula, same delivery, though the skill level is up a notch. Once again nice gently meandering pleasant passages that are occasionally rudely interupped by some harsh elements are jambed together on one disc for your listening pleasure.

Songs all clock in around six minutes and Burzum worship 101 has been repeated, Greg having failed to pass the course last time. It sounds like summer school is in his future. The torture aspect just does not ring true and the playing badly on purpose angle does not hold up either. I think he is playing to the best of his abilities, it is just that his abilities do not yet equal his ambition. Some of these songs show some promise, but as of now this band is simply one of a thousand rehash bands. Certainly not the next Leviathan or Krohm.

Now that the disc is over any of you impressionable souls still with us why don’t you go out and find Xasthur’s A Gate Through Bloodstained Mirrors and hear how it is supposed to sound.
