Necrovation - 2004 - Chants of Grim Death 7'' EP

Pure, unadulterated, filthy, rotten, old school Swedish death metal. Necrovation are a new band playing death metal in the vein of their country's classic acts such as Merciless, Nihilist, Carnage, Centinex etc. They even cover Merciless's "Pure Hate" from their legendary debut LP.

This EP has more of a rotten and menacing sound to it rather then the dark, brooding atmosphere of their LP, which isn't a bad thing by any means, it is just a whole different sound. The production is nice and ugly with layers of grime on top of the already putrid music, making everything about this recording absolutely perfect.

I really recommend this to everyone. This band is really living up to the legacy of old Swedish death metal scene. It is a rip from my own copy of the 7''. Enjoy.
