Akral Necrosis are a band from Romania that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very heavy and aggressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Underlight" which was released by Loud Rage Music.
A very fast and raw black metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and after a few seconds high pitched screams make their presence known on the recording while growls are also utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A great amount of morbid sounding melodies can be heard in the guitar riffing and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses clean playing starts getting utilized more in certain sections of the recording while the focus remains more on a heavy and raw approach.
Akral Necrosis plays a style of black metal on this recording t hat is very fast, raw and aggressive, the production sounds very professional without taking away from the aggression while the lyrics cover death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Akral Necrosis and if you are a fan of fast, raw and aggressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "King In Yellow" "Saturnian Gallows" "Hounds Of Plague" and "Underlight". 8 out of 10.
