So, the members of Necrophobic gathered around the pit to watch the dancing hellfire, and with the flame tongues reflecting on their eyes' pupils they asked each other: can we make another album as great as Mark Of The Necrogram? Or even greater? The flying demons laughed sardonically and maybe even mockingly, as if such back to back brilliance was impossible. But the Devil appeared and asked Necrophobic

Optimal old school piece whit modern touch as studio work, quality, mix and master. Speedy touch mixed in black/death metal mixture.

Took up from where it left at "The mark of the Necrogram". Maybe this time onwards the music is more melodious and the guitar leads are really lengthy. The album moves at an usual frantic pace. Overall it's a great listen.

Why don't you understand this albums' rating?
Because you gave Metallica's Black album a 10.
That's why.

Ironically enough, this and Endarkenment (along with Cryptic Shift) are currently in a battle for my own AotY

1. Yes I understand that Necrophobic and Endarkenment are completely different styles. I brought this up because it is possible for different styles to elicit the same reaction.
2. Metallica doesn't matter, it was a simple example to illustrate how completely different styles can also elicit different reactions. You "don't understand" why the album is in the top of the rating, the majority of the metal community "don't understand" why you would rate Metallica s/t as a 10. It's simple - people like different things.

Understend about Metallica ok. Maybe it was my bed reaction because i dont like and listen this band. You are right people like different things.
P.S. Glad to hear you love Anaal Nathrakh as much there is not many people who understend this band For exemple my friends DDDD

This one turned out as awesome as I hoped it would. Arguably not quite as good as Necrogram but still a fine, fine album.

yeah, I absolutely love Anaal Nathrakh.
Generally, if I don't like a band in general, I don't bother to rate their albums. For example, there's people who don't like or listen to Anaal Nathrakh, so they've gone in and 1-starred Endarkenment. Why bother?

It means more to me if I can read ratings from people who actually listen to the band.

It might have something to do with the fact that you like nu metal. I'm confused, you report one of your favorite bands is Dissection yet you hate this album?

I think this may be my favorite of their albums but I need a few more spins before I can decide 8 or 9

1.Dont confused broo Dissection is great, not only I love many old school bands, why new metal?
You know I have fight evry time with my metalhead friends when we together listening music. we are talking about music and fight. They say I have strange taste. For example : I like Death Metal To much, But I cant listen Morbid Angel I know they are great and many metalheads favourite band but i cant. It isnot mine you know? I tryed To like it but no. there is a few great band I dont like and cant listen. Unfortunely it is truth.
2. I think you are metal music fan and you like Necrophobic too much, I hurt you when i rate this album too low and im going to delete it. I'll make it for you )))))))
P.S. I have listen Necrophobic's few album and you know my opinion. But i dont remember The Nocturnal Silence. I will listen it again Carefully
