Necralant  are  a  duo  from  Worcester,  Massachusetts  that  has  had  music  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  plays  an  occult  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2021  album  "Temples  Of  Ruin"  which  was  released  by  Upside  Underground  Productions.

  Melodic  guitar  solos  and  leads  start  off  the  album  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling.  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  Dark  sounding  melodies  are  also  added  into  the  guitar  riffing  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  lot  of  old  school  death  metal  elements.  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  along  with  some  songs  also  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing  as  well  as  the  music  also  being  heavily  rooted  in  the  second  wave  era.

Growls  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  can  also be  heard  along  with  one  of  the  later  songs  also  being  an  instrumental.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism,  Satanism,  Left  Hand  Path  and  Anti  Christianity  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  Necralant  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  occult  black  and  death  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Cursed  Visions"  "Diabolic  Conception"  and  "Temples  Of  Ruin".  8  out  of  10. - Occult Black Metal Zine

Necralant 's second album, " Temples of Ruin ", is a deeper, darker look into the great abyss of black/death metal, unveiling and evoking the Black Flame of the Left Hand Path and it's mysteries. Featuring seven new hymns of blackened metal mysticism and ritualistic poetry, the listener is sure to be captured by the macabre rhythms, haunting melodies and hellish beckoning of this sophomore offering.
