NECRONOMICON – Advent of the Human God

Necronomicon – Advent of the Human God (2016, Season of Mist)

Extreme metal masters from Montréal, QC Necronomicon have released thru the renowned label Season of Mist their most recent attack Advent of the Human God.

This extreme/symphonic album is somewhere between Dimmu Borgir’s latest epic symphonic releases and Behemoth’s extreme metal entries. Dense, intense and a bit early 2000’s in its sound and compositions, Necronomicon is the kind of friend you get back to and have the same conversation you had fifteens years ago when you first met him.
As if I was listening again to Cradle of Filth’s Cruelty and the Beast. It is a record that reflects the time it came out. Recorded with high means, crafted in a state of mind of polished heavy metal with an edge for extreme sounds.

I never really was a fan of Necronomicon’s music because it felt too rooted in the musician’s influences and as talented as they are at their roles. They are, for me, great musicians making good music. Almost thirty years, since 1988, at making extreme metal is tremendous and despite this mitigated review I hope that Necronomicon will continue to release solid records one after the other. Just as Iron Maiden did, always true to themselves never following trends but making records in the genre they are masters at.
