Necronomicon - Unleashed Bastards Award winner

Unleashed Bastards
by Craig Rider at 05 October 2018, 6:44 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you; NECRONOMICON; signed via El Puerto Records, hailing from the glory of Germany - performing Thrash Metal, on their 9th Studio Album entitled: “Unleashed Beasts” (released September 28th, 2018).

Since formation in 1984; the quintet in question have 8 records in their discography so far, I am introduced to their 9th entitled: “Unleashed Beasts”. 12 tracks ranging at around 43:93, NECRONOMICON arrange an intricately designed formula of hard-hitting Thrash Metal developments. “Burn And Fall” begins the album, conveying in amplified adrenaline – chugging and galloping with chaotic mayhem, energized with battle hardened hymns and adroitly composed malevolence for that manifestation of relentless vehemence. The band demonstrate deadly devastation, in which heavily contrasts with diverse dynamics and profusely robust ramifications with an aesthetic of wildly rushing salubriousness and stimulation. This is some concretely gritty stuff so far, distributing savagely sinister substances that are oh so organic.

Consisting of Freddy on vocals/guitar, the front man consistently establishes complex dexterity as the catchy “Leave The Lights On” implements clean pipes with a hint of raw roughness in the voice for that element of efficiently crunchy cords. Second guitarist Mike also contributes constructively distinguished domination in the thunderously rhythmic “Total Rejection” (sounds like a KREATOR title), embellishing on fluidly polished sound production persistency and rapidly swift nimbleness and meticulous results. Battering drummer Chris hammers his steel with pummeling variety in the next track: “Malevolent”, executing creatively crafted extremity, amalgamated with maliciously primitive proficiencies. Audible bassist Marco supplies blistering expertise in the crunchy and jumpy “We Did We Do We Always Burning”, excelled with flamboyantly groovy finesse.

Imperial” converges empowering attributes, culminated with captivating hooks that portrays rambunctious stability - showcasing slamming sufficiency in which will make you break chairs over chairs. “My Name Is Vengeance” enlightens with more fulfilling fabrications, elegantly delivering exquisite songwriting memorability & originality. Assaulting with barrages of onslaughts and rampaging stampedes of skill, NECRONOMICON diligently unleash uniquely unprecedented ultilizations - as “Forbid Me From Living” contrasts with razor-sharp vitality. The next belter - “Unleashed” ambitiously examines progressively technical machinations, motivated with truculent lyricism while frolicking with damaging efficaciousness…ultimately unleashing rage-fueled heaviness.

Religion Live Fast” articulates with furiously hostile inventiveness with a borderline foundation of mid-tempo momentum, tinkered with speedy velocity and enjoyably headbanging entertainment. “Personal Enemy” differentiates with characteristics that have gnarly effectiveness, exercised with precisely performed orchestrations. Overall concluding “Unleashed Bastards” with the finale track: “The Nightmare Continues”; I am compelled to say that this is metal done right, I tend to come across a vast majority of bands who inconsistently provide that concise injection of sub-genre perfection that they choose - yet NECRONOMICON certainly outdone themselves and definitely exceeded all original expectations that I once had… I am looking forward to what they bring to the music industry next time!
