Necrosis was never known outside of Chile for the most part. Like a lot of their fellow thrashers, they were only part of the raw, filthy South American scene where Sepultura was the only most well-known band to average joe metalhead. This is not to say Necrosis was the ONLY Chilean band, no Chile included fellow countrymen Pentagram, Rust, and CAOS, but Necrosis definitely had a better shot at obtaining some recognition outside their home country. Well, that never happened. Which really sucks because for their first demo it's amazing that Roadrunner, Combat, or Metal Blade didn't pick these guys up or some other big 80's Metal label.
Reason why this demo kicks so much ass is the amazing almost crystal clear sound production. The sound is so well-defined and you can hear all of the instruments pretty clearly. This is probably the first demo from the South America area that doesn't sound like it was recorded in a fucking dumpster out back behind a 7-11, and for 1987 that's pretty hard to top. There are a few moments where the vocals sound like they are fading out a bit, but it's nothing too noticeable to take away from the amazingness of "Kingdom Of Hate."
Musically this is just your straight forward Thrash Metal but has some hints of a mixture of Bay Area and even Crossover. Think of a damn good mixture of Exodus, Slayer, Excel, and "Animosity"-era C.O.C. and you're pretty close. "Kingdom of Hate" demo starts off with the song "Prayer" with some nice crunchy Thrash riffs and already you can tell this shit is going to make you wanna thrash about like an idiot. The lead singer Andrés "Chancho cabrío" Marchant sounds a hell of a lot like Excel's singer Daniel ''Dan'' Clements. "Fall In The Last Summer" has some parts where it shows them really pushing themselves technically and alternating between harsh Thrash and skank beats. "My Fears" is somewhat similar to "Mad World" off C.O.C.'s "Animosity" album but with an opening throbbing bass line and more crunchy Slayer riffs. The last song and title track of the demo is more straight-forward Slayer/Exodus riffing.
This is probably one of the better demos I have listened to really. Not only for the quality of the music and the influences, but just for the fucking production alone. That right there makes a lot of difference. If there is one band you need to check out, look no further and prepare to play some air-guitar.
