NECROWRETCH - Satanic Slavery review

NECROWRETCH - Satanic Slavery

Season of Mist

Let me tell you something. This has been a banner year for "witches", "wretches" and "necro" or if you prefer "nekro". I'm referring to bands with those words in their names of course and not my relationship status. But in particular NECROWRETCH are a cool, as in old school sounding, blackened something or other from France. Now I say that because yeah NECROWRETCH are black metal. That was evident years ago when they were on Century Media. But the basic fact is that they always add subtle touches from outside their chosen genre that makes em great.

Satanic Slavery is their third full length over a long career. They've been around for almost a decade at least. Now what's cool about NECROWRETCH is that they've never followed the black metal trends inhabiting the French black metal scene. They've kept thing old school early 90's black metal with hints of thrash and death metal. This is their best album by far in my not so humble opinion. Also I'd call it one of this year's best as well.
