NEKROPTIKON - WHEN THE PLAGUE BREAKS OUT (EP)

Nekroptikon - When the Plague Breaks Out Poor

Via Nocturna, 28.04.17
According to Encyclopaedia Metallum, Nekroptikon is an American duo, but I rely more on the press-letter which describes Nekroptikon as a French one-man band.
Indeed, the band has in common with a not insignificant proportion of American bands that they don't entirely master the pitch black genre.
Nekroptikon deserve credit for originality, but this 20-minute EP is far too eccentric and quirky to be called black metal in my ears.
The band released its first EP last summer, and this EP originally followed in September.
