This EP by Swedish grindcore/death metal band General Surgery sounds like what it is: a basement recording by a band possessed of more enthusiasm than instrumental skill. The introductory instrumental, the 3:12 ‘Ominous Lamentation’, is very nearly the longest track on the disc (only ‘Crimson Concerto’, at an epic 3:30, is longer); most other tracks come in between 30 seconds (the grindcore-ish ‘An Orgy of Flying Limbs and Gore’), and two-and-a-half minutes, propelled by blastbeats and roaring, distorted guitars. The vocals are a mixture of inhuman roars and growls with occasional high-low dichotomies in the manner of early Carcass; a guttural rumble is balanced by a high-pitched screech. This is extremely underground music with little or nothing to offer anyone seeking melody, catchiness, or good cheer. But for those who want to bang their heads and drag their knuckles across the mosh pit floor, Necrology is a beer-sodden, sweaty thrill. Very rare original 1993 release Track listing: 1. Ominous Lamentation 2. Slithering Maceration Of Ulcerous Facial Tissue 3. Grotesque Laceration Of Mortified Flesh 4. Severe Catatonia In Pathology 5. Crimson Concerto 6. The Succulent Aftermath Of A Subdural Hemorrhage 7. An Orgy Of Flying Limbs And Gore
