Nekromantheon/Divinity Of Death/Vendlus Records/2011 CD Review

Nekromantheon are a band from Norway that plays retro black/thrash and this is a review of their 2011 album "Divinity Of Death" which was released by Vendlus Records.

Drums range from midpaced to fast drumming with alot of brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone which is mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from midpaced to fast riffs that are in the traditional classic tradition, while the lead guitars re very primal sounding guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly raspy black/thrash growls, while the lyrics cover Greek Mythology, issues and death, as for the production it sounds very primal and old school sounding.

In my opinion Nekromantheon are a very good black/thrash band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gringo Death" "Cry Havoc" "Tortured In Tartaros" and "Alcoholy Terror". RECEMMONDED BUY.
