Larvae - Necroptuary

From Oakland, CA, Larvae has released a new skull crushing EP. "Necroptuary" is 3 songs clocking in at just over 21 minutes of top notch death/doom. For those familiar with their full length, "Grave Descent", you know what you're in for.

This EP is a progression from their previous work. Better song writing as well as more epic. The recording itself is less polished. It's cavernous compared to the LP, but I think it pairs well with the tunes as well as the chilling vocals of Brad Kobylczak.

These 3 tracks are jam packed with doom riffs, groove riffs, blast riffs as well as classic OSDM style riffing. Those harmonies!!!! - add a chilling layer to heavy/meaty riffs. The low end provided by Wyatt, harmonies by Dara and Brad, and the brain splitting drumming of Raul will only leave you wanting more. Larvae!!!!!!, hurry up with another LP. I'm waiting!
