All manner of rotary drones, industrial hums, machine buzzes and electro pulses ebb and flow, grind and churn throughout eleven unsettling ambient tracks on Necromondo's first full-length self-titled release. Embellished with titles likes "Flesh Eater", "A Fistful of Intestines" and "Soaked in Blood I - III", this is bad craziness at its finest, folks. Incorporating anvil strikes, scrapes, moans percolating synth lines and "field recordings from contaminated areas", Necromondo has sewn together a rich, digital quilt of stark, atmospheric paranoia, even if it does grow repetitous after a while. Apparently inspired by '70s and '80s Italian horror films, this is sure to give you nightmares if you fall asleep with the headphones on. Pump this outside at Halloween and you're guaranteed to see at least a few kids "tricked" into shitting their pants.
