A reviewer at Metal Archives praises Necrot: "Emerging out the Oakland war crust scene, Necrot evolved away from mud caked crust and towards more blood spattered death metal. I've described them to friends as a 'more grime besmeared Dismember circa Where Ironcrosses Grow' and I stand by that description, though Necrot have grown slightly past it now. The grim-n-gritty buzzsaw with heavy bottom end sound is still there, the occasional flourishes of melody still arise, the no-fear approach to vile yet catchy song craft is as apparent as ever, but Necrot have added a few new wrinkles to it."
OFFICIAL: This June, Oakland, California-based classic death dealers NECROT will unleash the fetid fruits of their Blood Offerings full-length. Set for release on June 9th, 2017 on CD, LP, and digitally via Tankcrimes and on cassette in partnership with Sentient Ruin Laboratories, the eight-tracks comprising Blood Offerings were captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and will come sheathed in the unholy cover craftings of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness).
“Blood Offerings is the result of six years of hard work and is our first full-length record to be released by Tankcrimes,” relays drummer Chad Gailey. “The songwriting and performance on these eight songs is a step up from what people have heard previously. We feel that with this album, we have accomplished what we intended to create many years ago. It is always a great experience working with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer and Scotty Heath at Tankcrimes because of the hard work and care they both put into each project they are a part of. We are thankful to everyone who has supported NECROT to get to this point.”
Guitarist Sonny Reinhardt agrees, “We made the best album ever made and can’t wait to hit the road and kill you all.” Adds bassist Luca Indrio, “This is a death metal classic and you should f## have it!" Forged in 2011, NECROT features current and past members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, and Atrament. The band unleashed the audio bone-crush of their The Labyrinth full-length last year via Tankcrimes Records. Spewing forth eight tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, the record reaped critical acclaim from fans and media alike compelled by the band’s unrepentant Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, and Sacrilege worship. Decibel Magazine hailed NECROT’s, “classic, bursting-at-the-seams, crawling-from-the-grave-still-decaying sound,” while Invisible Oranges wrote, “NECROT are as old-school death metal as old-school death metal gets. Their songs would have been welcome presences on early classics by Master, Bolt Thrower, and Autopsy and yet, NECROT has a punk rock soul that refuses to die.” Last Rites concurred noting, “Death by pitiless decimation is the principle mandate here.”
