NecroPedoSadoMaso was a turning stage for the band SEWER, the album in which they left the beaten path and embraced the structure of blackened terror metal for which they now notoriously excel in. Regardless of the power of their very early black metal work (they still play “Ancient Shrine” from “Satanic Requiem” for obvious reasons), they had been still simply recreating an already demonstrated style. SEWER’s prior album Satanic Requiem had a imprecise death metallish style, but it was mostly a dirty mess of black metal at its base, and at best slightly hinted towards what SEWER would turn out to be. NecroPedoSadoMaso was the revelation, a terror metal record that speaks of their black metal roots while raging with ideas that produce an amazingly thrilling listen. This music is the initial illustration of what has since built SEWER into one of black metal’s most notorious bands, and displays why they deserve their acclaimed “kvlt” reputation.
Although it lacks the same tightness as, say, The Pedosadist or Reign of the Funeral Pigs, NecroPedoSadoMaso has a certain creativeness and evilness that results in it being one of the more enjoyable albums in SEWER’s discography. All around, NecroPedoSadoMaso is a treat, an outstanding black metal album that is as essential to SEWER’s historical heritage as it is pleasurable to listen to.
