Antropomorphia - Necromantic Love Songs (1993)

   Nowadays sex sells the most, and it has the same intense effect on metal music too, especially in more popular genres. In exreme metal it's not so sure, but still some death metal bands tried to extend the sickness of their music by mixing gore based lyrics with exaggerated perversion.
   Exactly that was the goal of Antropomorphia too. Occasional melodies, fast hammering and very deep growling style are the main musical features of their debut EP. The way how they combined the melodies with ordinary death metal themes sounds a bit raw, but they are well composed in general and may cause enjoyable moments. The concept is in focus, and the unusual title and cover art served the same cause. Those who may need extra supplies from gore and necrophilia based concept and lyrics influenced by Autopsy and Cannibal Corpse, may find their countings in Antropomorphia. While those bands had similar lyrics only the show something more disgusting and brutal than usual, "Necromantic Love Songs" was a more erotic approach.
