From Kristianstad, Sweden, comes this 4-horned monster, better known as NECROVATION. Unlike many other new Swedish Death Metal groups, adopting a similar approach to their Death Metal to form their own little DISMEMBERs and ENTOMBEDs - going up and down the same road and hoping for the best, NECROVATION do sound like a very non-Swedish Death Metal act for their own good. The band's 2nd, self-titled 9-track record sounds diverse, challenging and even progressive at times, still holding tightly a black candle for the times of old school Death Metal for most of the time. In fact, NECROVATION is much closer early David Vincent era MORBID ANGEL than one could expect at first; some of the leads off of this record could well be Trey Azagthoth's; some of the sludg-ish riffs could be taken from the band's "Domination" record - and even there's something so familiar in Seb's death grunts that at least occasionally, tend to conjure up Mr. Vincent's death growls from the 'Morbid Ones'. Then again, don't read me wrong because NECROVATION ain't any MORBID ANGEL clone band by any means; there's much more going on within their stuff than only trying to re-produce a similar sound that MORBID ANGEL used to have on some of their earlier records. While the band sounds vile, brutal, menacing and all that, they have really far-sighted enough to incorporate some pretty unusual breaks and clever hooks into their own songs - just to make a difference, so to speak. Also, with repeated listens, it's cool to notice that there's always something new to be discovered on this record - being it a single solo outburst or some rhythm change that sets a song into a whole different mood. To cut this short, all in all, an album that should not be missed by any (old school) Death Metal fan out there. www.necrovation.com, www.agoniarecords.com
