Italian metal veterans Necrodeath present a 15-track retrospective of their 25-year career entitled THE AGE OF FEAR. While many folks outside of the European metal circuit may not know much about this unit, this compilation release does a fine job of offering a comprehensive crash course of this troupe who have been serving up their dark blend of thrash metal seemingly under the radar for over two decades. Highlighting the band at their best with a few live tracks, a rousing symphonic reworking of their song “Queen of Desire” and a cover of Slayer’s “Black Magic” strewn in for good measure, THE AGE OF FEAR offers something for everyone, giving the best from this long running act in a convenient one stop shop as well as serving up a smattering of bonus material for the diehards.
