Necronomicon – The Return of the WitchJuly 22, 2010
‘Canada’s own Necronomicon celebrates the return of the witch with dark rituals and obscure incantations, transforming their latest album into an excessive orgy. Frenzied blastbeats, deadly double bass interludes, all-crushing riffs, and brutal vocals welcome the listener into the blasphemous world of Necronomicon. Complete with a bestial sound, the band easily combines their caliginous vision and uncompromising heaviness to create a tenebrous inferno that pays homage to the dark powers with commanding intensity. The artwork follows this lead to impressively capture the murky atmosphere. “The Return of the Witch” is an aggressive and destructive black/death metal work ready to fascinate even the most discerning fans of Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth.’
Actually, it’s a fucking pathetic excuse for an album. A mess of poorly played instruments and some vocals that sound like something out of a medieval slaughterhouse…. avoid.
