NECROS CHRISTOS
NECROS CHRISTOS
Darkness Comes To... Live!
(Sepulchral Voice / Ván Records)
65:00min

No, this ain't a new NECROS CHRISTOS album, but another very cool release of these guys nevertheless. It is first and foremost addressed to all those of you who haven't got the chance to check out NECROS CHRISTOS in a live environment yet (which unfortunately also includes the rather lazy writer of these lines), since "Darkness Comes To... Live!" is a live CD / DVD package, from a show that this Berlin / Germany based four piece played on their "Sepulchral Doom Over Europe" tour at the K17 club in their hometown back in 2013. The focus in the setlist is definitely on the two albums "Doom Of The Occult" (2011) and "Triune Impurity Rites" (2007), but you'll also get to hear (and see) crushing versions of 'Red Wine Runs Out Of The White Skull Of Jesus' (from the "Grave Damnation" demo), 'Curse Of The Necromantical Sabbath' (from the EP of the same name) and the previously unreleased (??) track 'Tombstone Chapel'. The quality of the recording (audio and video) is totally top notch and especially the DVD part looks pretty professional since it was shot with various different cameras and captures the whole atmosphere in the best possible way. You even get to see impressive footage from new drummer Iván Hernández (who joined NECROS CHRISTOS in 2012), which was shot from behind his drumkit. This guy is not only constantly banging his head while he's playing, he also impresses with his incredible playing skills). The packaging of the release is rather simple (a black and white gatefold cardboard CD case, with no booklet or whatsoever) and you can only order it from both involved labels and the band directly. But that most certainly won't prevent all the NECROS CHRISTOS worshippers from ordering a copy straight away nevertheess. Let's face the facts: "Darkness Comes To... Live!" is simply equally essential in the band's back catalogue as their classic demos or regular album- and EP / split EP releases and therefore another must-have!
