Italy and the Mediterranean in general have that occult atmosphere that tends to saturate their black metal offerings. Necromass were dark as fukk with their first album, then decided to be actual musicians and lose a lot of that occult atmosphere in order to create a more contemporary mid paced approach to their black metal on their latter platter (Abyss Calls Life). Disappointing, but really, how could they top that aura of evil that was Mysteria Mystica Zothyriana? Xul throws up both of them, as a comparison to each other and for the fukk of it, since we have em' both handy. Compare the two for yourself. Also to be noted that MMZ was one of the earlier releases on Unisound records, who really had a niche of excellent occult themed releases for awhile.
