Metalpunk rippers Nekrofilth stream the entirety of their special all-covers EP, Love Me Like a Reptile, at Decibel magazine’s website. Set for international release on July 12th via Hells Headbangers on 7″ vinyl format,hear Nekrofilth‘s Love Me Like a Reptile in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Tellingly titled, Love Me Like a Reptile includes a cover of the classic Motörhead song on Side A, with fittingly ripping Nekrofilth-styled covers of Rudimentary Peni’s “Media Person,” Mortician’s “Zombie Apocalypse,” and Mob 47’s “Det är Upp Till Oss” all on Side B. This all-covers EP comes quickly after Worm Ritual, the band’s long-awaited second album for Hells Headbangers, which proves that this power-trio are nastier and yet more finessed than ever. The cover of Motörhead’s “Love Me Like a Reptile” was recorded during the same sessions and with the same lineup as Worm Ritual, while the three covers on Side B were recorded during an earlier session. Altogether, however, the EP works as a quick-hitting companion piece to Worm Ritual.
Some expected influences and some unexpected, with stylistically nodding artwork courtesy of Lauren Gornik Illustration, Nekrofilth‘s Love Me Like a Reptile EP is a fun ‘n’ furious addition to these always defiant metalpunks’ deep discography!
