Necrolust are a band from Italy that plays a very satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Ancient Worship" which was released by Art Inferna.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album before going into as very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched yet grim black metal screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Ritualistic spoken word parts can also be heard briefly while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style as well as having their raw moments when they are utilized along with the music also bringing in a great amount of 90's influences.
Synths can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and as the album progresses a brief use of war samples can be heard before returning back to a heavier and more aggressive musical direction direction, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christianity and Hatred themes.
In my opinion Necrolust are a very great sounding satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Summon The Horned Goat" "Master of Killing" and "Century of Sathanas". 8 out of 10.
