It’s all in place: An evil-as-f*ck band name, dark and heavy music and a growl from hell. You’d think that all is good for French death metal outfit Necroblaspheme – who’ve actually been around since 2001.
Yup, they do everything right, and they sound good. Only, ‘Belleville’ is a terribly dull album. The spark isn’t there. It’s all too predictable. Simple as that.
With the song Gouffre, i.e. the ninth song of the album, there’s finally some of that intensity and energy I’m looking for in death metal, but then it’s too late, innit? Too bad, it doesn’t really work.
