Iron Bonehead Productions announces February 21st, 2020 as the international release date for Necrobode‘s striking debut album, Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
A diabolical duo hailing from Portugal, Necrobode made their first public assault with 2018’s Metal Negro da Morte, via Iron Bonehead. Ever aptly titled, Metal Negro da Morte geysered forth with a raw ‘n’ rude display of ancient black/death frequencies, invoking a savage delirium from which the listener was rendered helpless to its hypnotic trance of terror.
Wasting no time and now expanded to a trio, Necrobode carry forth that antagonistic aesthetic on their debut album, Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode. In many ways, Necrobode‘s debut LP simply intensifies their demo’s firm ‘n’ filthy foundation – pulsing bestiality, clanging riffery, FX-drenched vomits from the abyss – and threads these ten tracks into a haunting tapestry of dungeonic catatonia. But, rising from that muck (and often) are very-nearly-melodic phrases that instill just the right amount of catchiness without going overboard into soft sterility. Likewise, with an unstudied minimalistic approach to their blackgrind (read: NOT “avant-garde”) do Necrobode nod as equally to the likes of Bestial Summoning, Naked Whipper, and Blood as they do classic VON, ’90s Demoncy, and Drawing Down the Moon-era Beherit. Which is to say nothing of their frequent-yet-subtle usage of synths at various points across Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode, instilling a conspicuous stench of witchcraft…
Enter Necrobode‘s summerlands and become joined in darkness Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode!
