Necrophagia - Goblins Be Thine (Red Stream) - Back
The amassed "audio" horror presented on this disc, is particularily troubling to the ear. To the normal ear that is... to the metal ear, Necrophagia is every bit of black/ambient/thrash/heavy metal (if you can allow that to be hastened)! With all these elements being muscled together at once, you can expect something very unique. "Sadako's Curse" is a hybrid-occult black metal attack then followed by a more "pagan" feel in "To Sleep with the Dead". Of course, the audio horror tracks on this disc would include "The Fog", "Goblins be Thine", and the 11-minute ambient-metal-horror "Young Burial". It's difficult to describe a band such as this with such an oddly, horrific sound. I suppose then, that descriptions can be left to the various listeners out there. I could see this used to keep trick-or-treaters away around 8 o'clock Halloween night when kids are making their second rounds... or if you just flat-out hate giving out candy. Anyways- fans of bands like Blut Aus Nord, Mayhem & Burzum will love Necrophagia!!
