𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: The guitar riffage is awe-inspiring, with an old-school black metal signature trademark of, primitive, cold, menacing (repetitive (one-time riffs) and atmospheric, with a hint of feedback in the guitar work – making the riffs heavy & distorted.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Reminiscent of old-school black shrieks, that are dead-evil and cold as hell… with additional chanted/clean (spellcasting) vocals push in the background

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Are not overpowered with countless blast-beats, but more of a (sort of) heavy metal malefic/cold drumming, with nice dark & epic beats and sound

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Clocking in over forty-five minutes of just seven songs that are a mixture of short and long songs, giving the listening a spellbound of (mid-fast/slow) old-school black metal and a conjurer vibe/feel (that is catchy, powerful & energetic). Buried within the music, the lister is tranced with magical sound efforts, (soundscapes, acoustic, bongo drums) that are eerie, dark, epic, menacing and malefic

>> The opening track is somewhat unusual, is nothing but noise and distorted sound, but gives the listening a cold eerie feeling running through there vanes, while the rest of the six songs having their own (unique) opening sound efforts.

Giving this EP a (and title of the songs) a concept feeling of funerary incantation, and demon/dead resurrection

A Necro, dark spell'tacular extreme metal band that

harness the power

of old-school black and heavy atmospheric sounds

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork, reminds me of the ‘Necronomicon’ book from the Evil Dead movies. Just the colour of the sleeve, with the black and white imagery & text, Gives that impression of a book of the dead

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole album, very addictive, energetic, and spell’tacular from beginning to end, If you love depressive/atmospheric & old-school black metal with eerie sound efforts, you will love Livløst and their music

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: For me, I have no dislike for this debut…
