Bay Area death metal/punk faction NECROT occupy the 116th installment of Decibel Magazine’s flexi-series with a re-recorded version of their 2016 demo track “Into The Labyrinth.” A subscriber exclusive, the flexi is included in Decibel’s August 2020 issue.
If you missed your subscription opportunity, go to THIS LOCATION
where an extremely limited number of issues carrying the flexi remain.
The Decibel flexi serves as a teaser to NECROT‘s impending new full-length, Mortal, set for release on August 28th via Tankcrimes. 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. Easily their most precise performance to date, Mortal writhes under the weight of its own destructive rhythms, intricate guitar leads, and guttural domination.
Sample first two singles, “Asleep Forever” and “Stench Of Decay,” below .
NECROT‘s Mortal comes swathed 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, NECROT hails 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.
