Bay Area’s Necrot have, in short order, become a household name for those of us that love our death metal sinewy and with tons of blood and guts yet keeping intact the basic tenets that death metal was built upon. Their first full length Blood Offerings saw the band explode with tons of positive coverage and electrifying live shows to back it up. And now with their second offering Mortal they build on this success with an even gnarlier sound that will appeal to not only death metal fans but fans of all metal far and wide. There’s no escaping the hype train for these guys but it is well deserved, this is a band that is building their future by staying true to themselves and working as hard as they can to share true death metal with the masses. It’s vicious, pummeling ecstacy and truly lightning in a bottle as bassist and vocalist Luca Indrio will explain immediately below.
Ahead of Mortal’s release, Luca took some precious time to chat with Buke about the upcoming album and how their hard work has paid dividends to gain as much attention to their brand of death metal as possible. They also spend some time on the impact of their debut Blood Offerings, Luca’s early days in Italy organizing shows, why “Stench of Decay” was selected as the lead off single, Luca’s Metal vs Racism joint venture with Eric from Gatecreeper, and so much more!
This is a great conversation, so enough chit-chat…let’s dive in:
Many thanks to Luca for his time!
