may have strayed a little from the sound that people know, this is
horror or gore death metal with thrash. It is not really black metal,
at least not as much as the other releases. “Harvest Ritual:
Volume 1” has straightforward, super brutal, nasty, heavy riffs
will rot your face off. I can feel the pus running down my face right
now!! Almost sounds like Carcass at times. Every heavy note is another
sledgehammer to the temple. The riffs make your head thrash forward
and back and the atmosphere completes this horror of horrors. Necrophagia
uses hauntingly eerie atmospheres with a Halloween tone. I love the
sound effects; they work very well for Necrophagia’s sound.
“Akumu” is a great break in the album, a short but sweet
eerie tale. I almost want to say that this disc is my favorite Necrophagia
album. If you never checked out a Necrophagia CD yet, you need to
check this one at least.
