||Hmm…where should I start? Necro
can be considered Death Rap or Metal Hip-Hop, either way it’s
nothing gratifying for me. It’s definitely not metal. “The
Pre-Fix For Death” uses very few metal elements, if at all.
It’s like a rapper doing hip-hop, but talking about metal. The
lyrics are the only things that are metal worthy, and they aren’t
consistent. This disc left me with one expression…huh? I don’t
know what to think of this. At times it’s comparable to Body
Count and ICP, mostly because of the impressive guest musician list.
Guest musicians include Danny Lilker, Jamey Jasta, Trevor Perez, John
Tardy, Sid Wilson (#0), and more. That’s the only thing that
is really redeemable on this CD. Even when they are involved it still
isn’t that good, but at least those tracks are listenable for
metalheads. There are a few heavy riffs that are catchy, however it
doesn’t out-way the rap feel. I understand Necro opened up for
some of the guest musicians and his history in metal, but I’m
still confused on why so many respected metal musicians got involved
with this obviously hardcore rap sound. I don’t know what people
expected. It’s hard to review rap on a metal reviewing website
when everything is done from a metal or hard rock point of view. If
you are into rap you might like this. Metalheads probably should stay
away. Sorry, it’s just not my cup of tea.
