Bay Area death metal/punk trio NECROT will release their long-anticipated new full-length, Mortal, via Tankcrimes on August 28th.
Recorded by Grammy award winning engineer Greg Wilkinson (High On Fire, Autopsy) and mastered by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Cattle Decapitation, Mastodon) at West West Side, the followup to the band’s critically adored Blood Offerings full-length is at once earth rupturing and memorable, spewing forth seven tracks of meticulously executed vile and maniacal death metal supremacy. Easily their most precise performance to date, Mortal foams at its mouth with destructive rhythms, intricate guitar leads, and guttural domination.
“When we first started, our goal was to play death metal and put out some tapes,” elaborates vocalist/bassist Luca Indrio. “We always wanted to write an album that twenty years from now would be remembered as a true classic of the genre. With Blood Offerings, we may have done that but with Mortal we have definitely done that. Time will prove us right.”
Said Indrio of the band’s first single off Mortal, “‘Stench Of Decay’ is the smell of our world falling under the greed and senseless pride of men. It is the stench you smell in the morning when you realize that outside your door is nothing but ugly humans ready to deceive, steal, or even kill for a little more power or money. ‘Stench Of Decay’ is what we have been breathing since day one and we will continue breathing it until everything and everyone we know and love inevitably disappears.”
NECROT’s Mortal, which comes cloaked in the cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Baroness, Mortuous), will be released on CD (standard jewel case + limited mail order only digipack), gatefold LP, cassette, and digital formats.
