After two excellent albums like Hora Nocturna (2006) and Saldorian Spell (2009), DNS deliver an excellent successor, perhaps thanks also to contribution of the new bassist Adversarius. The production is slightly more polished than the previous albums but the general atmosphere remains obscure as always. All songs on Necrovision are blows of pure energy. The album begins with the intro “Aura”, followed by “Omnis Immundus Spiritus”, a song that will make you uncontrolably nod in time with the music. The last song “Necrocosmic Vision” is another pearl of furious black metal. The voice of Onielar is aggressive and effective and involves the listener into the vortex of riffs and tempo changes on the album. Necrovision holds a high pace, which is however interrupted only, and perhaps unnecessarily, by a tune in Spanish at the end of “Upon My Arrival”.
The lyrics are mostly dark and evil and often alternate English and Latin, which is much appreciated. Latin gives a patina of sacredness to these occult texts. Sometimes you can pick up verses that go beyond the occult and are real nuggets of wisdom like this couplet in “Fundaments of Seminal Knowledge”: “The cognition of life grows perpetually / out of dichotomies polarity”.
Necrovision is a great album. If you love furious black metal and you have not listened to this album yet, just don’t miss it.
Necrovision was released on January 25, 2013 on War Anthem Records.
