Eric Cutler (Autopsy) forms Necrosic, will release Putrid Decimation MLP

necrosic mlp

Besides his long and storied career with Autopsy (including their latest EP, Skull Grinder), Eric Cutler has found time to contribute to other death metal bands on occasion, and more recently has formed another of his own. Necrosic, as presented to us by NWN, features a couple of other established death metal musicians, and on initial impression sounds like a mixture of Autopsy’s signature sound with some modern death metal elements and production. Their debut EP (Putrid Decimation) will come out on April 15th, 2016. When looking at the promo Nuclear War Now! sent us, I noticed that they concluded by claiming this band “…demonstrates that there is often no reliable substitute for experience“. I’d like to counter-argue that established bands are not guaranteed to succeed in their endeavors any more than new musicians, but it’ll be some time before we can truly comment on whether Necrosic lives up to Cutler’s legacy or not.

    The first 1-2 releases (demo albums or studio albums) by a band are almost always the best. Nothing kills an artist more than experience. I can’t think of any artist whether they be in the genre of metal, rock music, punk music, pop music, rap music, etc that actually got better with age.

      Mozart got better with age. Have you heard his first symphony? It’s garbage.

      1. vOddy says:

        What you say still applies to metal. Music during that time was created in a different environment, so it probably had its own phenomena. But as far as modern music is concerned, I agree with you. Things rarely get better, but often worse.

    2. OliveFox says:

      Are you crazy?!?! Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Amorphis, Entombed…each new album is better than the last!

    3. AzureMurakumo says:

      I’d posit that Averse Sefira kept improving with every subsequent release until they split up. Deceased are another band whose later material I’d argue is superior to their early output.

      1. hypocrite says:

        Fearless Undead Machines is way better than anything after it

    4. gay guy says:

      This is why I’m skeptical of when album reviews, here or elsewhere, declare the work mediocre but say that there is potential for improvement. Almost all of the time you can tell if a band is good or not based on the quality of their first album. There are a few bands who followed up their meh debuts with fantastic sophomore efforts (Obituary, Sentenced), but those are few and far between.

    Acts of the Unspeakable and Shitfun are both pretty cool.

  3. Can you survive the blitzkrieg says:

    All advertising hype is as real and genuine as wrestling promos, phone sex ads, political speeches, long winded efforts with eyes intently not your hands wavering near the wallet. I do like new Autopsy but it’s friendly to stoner fags, I think these old schoolers are getting big heads and cam addiction. 6 years ago I as excited death metal was having a third wind of popularity, now it’s fucking annoying. How about looking at some overlooked Adam that had no hype, Darkness Eternal?

    I meant “on your hands” and “fame addiction” phones are lousy, and DM not Adam, spellcheck
