Necrolust are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a very raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Advent Of new Evil" which was released by Art Inferna.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep while the vocals start out with more of a semi clean style. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in more of an old school direction along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a decent amount of programmed blast beats.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling while the music also adds in a decent amount of 90's influences. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the guitar leads being done in a very chaotic style when they are utilized, on later tracks the vocals also start evolving into more of a grim style and as the ep progresses a brief use of horror movie style synths can also be heard.
On this recording Necrolust bring in more of a different vocal style to their old school approach to black metal. The production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover Occultism, Darkness and Evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Necrolust and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nightmares & Succubi" and "Echoes Of ADead Scream". 8 out of 10.
