Necro Deathmort – Music Of Bleak Origin (2011)

Necro Deathmort are an incredibly underrated band. Music Of Bleak Origin is – I think – the band’s own origin, and they have come leaps and bounds since then. The records since this one float away in a dreamy yet claustrophobic hell of electronic and industrial music, but this debut album has more in common with Godflesh than it does to say, something like Scorn. There is an electronic backbone to this nightmarish journey, but there is also a large amount of guitar-based riffs and textures.

All in all, Music Of Bleak Origin is not quite as bleak as the title promises, there is a full array of moods and textures, none of which get boring but do tend to stew in the slow and miserable territory. Good fun!
