The Extinction Of Faith
(Misanthropic Records)

Hailing from Divinópolis (Brazil), NECROBIOTIC is a Death Metal band formed in the first half of the 90s. Inactive for 10 years, they’ve reformed in 2008 and from there they've not stopped. Their new stuff was released by Misanthropic Records the last year and is called “The Extinction Of Faith”. Their musical proposal consists in classic Death Metal played in the old tradition mixed with some vicious Thrash overtones: harsh and brutal vocals, fast guitars, blast beats, nice work on the double bass drum and straightforward composition structures (if you’re looking for experimental, avantgarde or even melodic heavy music this is not the place). The first song is called ‘Prelude’, a fast 3 and half minutes track that delivers a good dose of brutality which complements perfectly with another huge dose on the second song: ‘War And Hate’. Both are really good memorable tracks but at one point the album comes in a repetitive exercise until the seventh song, called ‘The Extinction Of Faith’, a slower composition than the previous, the same for the ninth track, ‘Hymn Of A Genocide’, a well worked instrumental. NECROBIOTIC’s music sounds like a cross between MORBID ANGEL, DISINCARNATE, VADER, and SARCÓFAGO (“The Laws Of Scourge” era). The vocals remind me a lot of David Vincent (especially in their “Covenant” and “Domination” era). The production is good in general but could be better: I don’t’ know what happened in the mixing process of this work, but I really miss more presence on the bass guitar and this problem is not in certain songs but on the whole album. I just remember listening to some bass lines on ‘War And Hate’, ‘The Beginning Of The End’ and ‘Religious Dead End’, second, fifth and eighth track respectively. More information at:,
