Ever aptly titled, Metal Negro da Morte geysered forth with a raw 'n' rude display of ancient black/death frequencies, invoking a savage delirium from which the listener was rendered helpless to its hypnotic trance of terror.
Wasting no time and now expanded to a trio, Necrobode carry forth that antagonistic aesthetic on their debut album, Sob o Feitiço do Necrobode.
