Slaughter of the Seoul

Rated 4.14/5 (82.86%) (7 Votes)

This is the second (and apparently last) album from South Korean Death/Thrash band Necramyth, who unexpectedly split up shortly after this was recorded. Their two distinctions were that David Gold (of Woods of Ypres) played drums on this album, and that they totally kicked ass. I was not expecting a whole lot out of this, but it totally and relentlessly kills everything in sight with chaotic blasting riffs and hammering rhythms. This is a very Asian sound, as everything is mixed into solid wall of seething wrath, without a whole lot of distinction between the instruments. The whole presents as a single crushing fist of hell-blasting savagery, thick with classic Death Metal riffing and Thrash speed and chugging rhythm guitars. Killer, killer shit.
