Necrosic - Putrid Decimation [Nuclear War Now - 2016]

Formed by Autopsy guitarist Eric Cutler, Necrosic is a five piece made up of members of Impaled, Scolex, Ascended Dead, and Gravehill. Proving that solid, no frills, riff centered death metal always entertains, their debut EP, Putrid Decimation, will hammer its way into your heart through skillful guitar work, pounding drums, and rough vocals. And, at under twenty minutes, you can fit a listen into even the tightest of schedules.

Opening with a delightfully putrid riff, "Vomit Transmutation" pounds forward deliberately, switching between seas of slower paced, plodding death and fast, shredding island of frenzied metal. Undulating, spidery guitar work takes the listener's hand to lead them on this death metal journey, and shows him a vile, shred-filled world before blasting off into the sky in a scathing end solo. "Spawn of Radiation" continues Putrid Decimation's chugging pace. Twice as long as the previous song, "Spawn's" approach differs in the lack of speedy bits. Focusing on a thick, head nodding riff, this mid-paced fist banger plugs along at its own pace. The solo about three quarters of the way through really helps to break this one up, like a snowy tornado across the cold tundra. A low bassline and distant guitar wailing fade in to kick off "Squirming In Your Guts." Building slowly for the first two-thirds, this one picks up to an intense pace and demonstrates how well Necrosic can handle slow, sludgy death and full on speed assaults. The speed is short lived, but it helps to bring this track to the next level. Closing out the EP is "My Casket Drains." The punky, simple riff soon breaks down into a slow, sludgy chug topped by dueling vocals. A solo emerges from the muck and its speed plays in nice contrast to the slow moving, metallic murk.

Necrosic's debut EP is a nice mix of slow, mid, and fast paced death. Solid riffs and tight solos help to make this album a bit more interesting than traditional sludgy death. Short and sweet, this is a great teaser for what's to come
