Dhaka, Bangladesh-based Nekrohowl is a band of young, hungry musicians that excel a crafting vicious, old-school-style Death Metal. After a Demo quality release in 2016, guitarist and vocalist Obliterator, bassist Sadist, and drummer Warmonger return with their official debut release. Their 5-song ‘Epitome Of Morbid‘ EP will drop and detonate upon listeners come September 30th.
That claim is not just hype either, my friends, because this music is as savage as it gets when it comes to modern DM. With the intricacy of Suffocation, sheer gruesomeness of Autopsy, belligerent tone of Immolation, and vitriolic intensity of Morbid Angel, Nekrohowl is here to ruin your groove. Not merely just ruin it but to stomp, crush and obliterate it into a scattering of fragmented remnants.
Comprised of the most extreme elements in metal, tumultuous tempests of neck-wrenching riffs, rhythms, and rapid-fire drums assault your senses. The agony they inflict is the equivalent of being hit head-on by a runaway train, one that reverses and rolls you asunder several times to make sure you know it’s been here.
You can stream 2 of the five songs, “Blasphemy Still Unnamed” and “Mortal Incubation“, via the Bandcamp embed below, with the rest of the EP available on September 30th. Do so at your own risk for even in this lessened state, the two tracks possess enough homicidal yield in them to kill countless where they stand.
