Death Metal Monday, A to Z: NECRONY

washed out for being unsightlyHappy Monday!  Today, as will often be true, our journey for obscure death metal brings us back to Sweden and the short-lived project NECRONY.  Unlike the majority of their countrymen, however, NECRONY found themselves neither on the left hand path nor under the red sky, instead focusing their attentions on the gore obsession of CARCASS, REPULSION and other fundamental grinding acts from abroad.  With just a touch of the typically Swedish mastery of melody and a distinct production from Dan Swanö’s Unisound Studios, Pathological Performances was delivered stillborn through Poserslaughter Records sometime in 1993.

The song titles give away their allegiance before even hitting play (“Dexterous Embryectomy”; “Submassive Necrosis Disgorgement”; “Gynopathological Excav-Eater”).  To NECRONY’s credit, especially as non-native English speakers, they do a fine job of mimicking the spirit of CARCASS’s tongue-in-cheek wordplay rather than simply aping the obscure medical terminology.

And speaking of which: I’ll keep my own verbosity under wraps this time and let the music speak for itself.  To make one comparison: Sweden’s GENERAL SURGERY’s old material (Necrology era) pulled off similar feats of CARCASS-sum-Stockholm death metal, but I find NECRONY to be more engaging, original and generally fun than their more famous goregrinding counterparts.

Skål and enjoy!

    Sometimes I wonder if people are spending too much time discovering forgotten Swedish albums. Necrony is good, but there are many countries that deserves much more attention or love, like Poland, Brazil, Malaysia, Spain, France, or Italy. It’s weird that most maniacs know majority of swedish acts, while at the same time completely ignoring the scenes in other countries.
