Necrogosto are a band from Brazil that plays a musical style they refer to as being satanic black noise and this is a review of their self titled 2017 demo which will be re-issued on February 18th on cassette by Nuclear War Now! Productions.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the demo before going into a very fast and raw war metal direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the music is very heavily influenced by the 80's and 90's styles of Brazilian black and death metal.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also add in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies. Elements of thrash and first wave black metal can also be heard in the bands musical style along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful.
While the music is very heavily rooted in the past it still adds in a modern touch at times in the way they mix their influences together. Bestial growls can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as the music always remaining very heavy and the ep closes with a ritualistic sounding outro. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Rituals, Demons, Evil, Blasphemy and Anti Christian themes.
In my opinion Necrogosto are a very great sounding raw and old school mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritual Of Decay" and "Paths of Abomination". 8/5 out of 10.
