Fans of Necrot may remember the band played at Harlow’s back in 2019 with gore merchants, Exhumed, and Sonoran death metal cretins, Gatecreeper. Now, fans of early Grave, Sinister, Blood Incantation and even Immolation will appreciate Necrot’s latest album, “Mortal,” which was dropped during the beginnings of the pandemic in August 2020. The trio’s upcoming show at Café Colonial will continue to support that release.
If live video of their semi-recent East Bay show supporting death metal legends Possessed is any indication, Sacramento is in for a real treat. Necrot is comprised of bassist/vocalist Luca Indrio (Vastum, ex-Acephalix), drummer Chad Galley (Mortuous, Vastum) and guitarist Sonny Reinhardt (Saviours, Watch Them Die, Vorlust). Unlike some death metal acts with their configuration, Necrot produces a massive wall of sound and some of the most-nauseating, extreme arrangements around.
Rounding out this heavier-than-should-be-allowed bill is Mortiferum, Deathgrave and Abhorrency. Tickets can be purchased online (while they last) for $20. Cafe Colonial is located at 3520 Stockton Blvd. All ages are welcome. Demons will die hard.
