As the release of NECROT‘s eagerly anticipated new full-length, Mortal, nears release via Tankcrimes next month, today the band offers up third single, “Your Hell” for public feasting.
Comments NECROT bassist/vocalist Luca Indrio, “‘Your Hell’ talks about the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator of violence; how the trauma of the victim often creates new future offenders. It focuses on a vicious circle where the victim carries the trauma of the violence received, building from pain the resentment necessary to become the next perpetrator. The song also talks about the moment in which the eyes of both meet seeing each other’s future and past. The song never really literally says ‘your hell’ in the lyrics, but it does say, ‘my hell will be yours’ making it in fact ‘Your Hell.'”
Stream NECROT’s “Your Hell” as well as previously release singles, “Asleep Forever” and “Stench Of Decay,” below.
NECROT‘s Mortal will see release on August 28th. Recorded by Grammy-award-winning engineer Greg Wilkinson (High On Fire, Autopsy) and mastered by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Cattle Decapitation, Mastodon) at West West Side, the followup to the band’s critically adored Blood Offerings debut is at once earth rupturing and memorable. Mortal comes cloaked in the cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Baroness, Mortuous) and will be released on CD (standard jewel case + limited mailorder only digipack), gatefold LP, cassette, and digital formats.

Forged in 2011, death metal/punk practitioners NECROT hail from Oakland, California. Sharing current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, and Mortuous, they are among the most respected bands of the current Bay Area death metal scene. Following three demos and a demo compilation LP, The Labyrinth, NECROT unveiled their debut full-length, Blood Offerings, in 2017. The record, which earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release in addition to earning year-end accolades from the likes of Decibel Magazine and Revolver, continues to reap the praise of fans and critics both Stateside and abroad. The band has toured the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia extensively, in addition to numerous festival appearances in Mexico, Scandinavia, and Japan, with live incursions in support of Mortal to be announced in the months to come.
