Psychopath Next Door
Anmeldt av Jørgen Garmann(Xtreem Music, 2013)
Necropsy is back on track. The finnish death metalers started out doing just that, playing death metal the way it is supposed to be.
They where a part of the first wave of the findeath scene back in the early 90´s but lost it completely on their "comeback" album "Bloodwork" back in 2011.
Earlier this year Century Media compiled all their demo´s and splits from the bands early period in a mighty fine three disk set named "Tomb of the Forgotten" (read my review here)
Xtreem Records have since then signed on Necropsy to their roster and the first taste of "new" Necropsy come´s in the form of a mini cd called "Psychopath Next Door"
Four tracks of pummeling death metal with no intention to look back on previous material. This is a more modern Necropsy with well written material containing a lot of chugging and a grim growl that fits the music well. The technicality is (luckily) on the easy level so the musci flows well. The originality on the material is not all that but it works. You may think that you have heard some of the arrangements before but they are performed relentlessly and heavy as f**k and that is all that matters.
I´am not a big fan of EP´s (or in this case, MCD´s) because I dont think they contain enough material to really get into the groove of a band´s current status as musicians.
I like to have more than 4 tracks (17 minutes) to really get into the music but after 6-7 spins in a row "Psycopath Next Door" starts to settle in on me and like mentioned before, if you like your death metal done the traditional way without any surprises Necropsy is for you.
Looking forward to (hopefully) a full-length in the near future though.
