Goreaphobia Apocalyptic Necromancy

Goreaphobia Apocalyptic Necromancy
If you're looking for some raw, grimy, '90s-infused old school death metal then Philadelphia, PA-based Goreaphobia are the band for you. The legendary outfit formed in 1988 and only released a demo and two seven-inch EPs in the '90s before disbanding. But new album Apocalyptic Necromancy is evidence that they haven't changed much. The record marks their third album since reforming and is the follow-up to 2009's Mortal Repulsion. Picking up exactly where they left off, Apocalyptic Necromancy features extremely raw production, as well as fast, thrash-influenced guitar work and evil vocal shrieks, which is precisely what's expected from a band that include Blood Storm and Absu's Chris Gamble (vocals/bass), as well as Incantation's Alex Bouks (guitar) and Jim Roe (drums). Noteworthy tracks include the energetic "Xurroth Rreeth N'Vez Helm (City of Rot and Decay)" and "Void of the Larva Queen," as well as the slower-paced "Darkstar Dementia." Filthy stuff. (Dark Descent)
