Necromantia - Scarlet Evil Witching Black

Posted on Sunday, April 15, 2012

These guys have never been afraid to take chances, and this is perhaps their most diverse release to date. Of course there are (as always) no rhythm guitars, but there are occasional guitar solos, and some acoustic work mixed in with the dual bass assault. I rarely hear any type of horn used in an interesting (or at least not irritating) way in Metal, but the very infrequent sax somehow works for them. Necromantia was one of the first of the “new wave” of Black Metal bands, and Scarlet Evil… proves that they are still very much on the cutting edge, but have sacrificed none of their trademark sound to stay there.
