EYES OF BLUE LIGHT REVIEWS
“Necropanther is more coherent than Trenchgrinder, more deliberate in its melodic leanings than At The Gates, & just as jubilantly riff-tastic as the Skeletonwitch of yore. Necropanther happened across--& then perfected--a genuinely earth-shattering formula of throat-shredding vocals & downright nasty axemanship.”
“I ran sound for these guys tonight. They came into The Elbow Room from Denver, CO and just completely annihilated the place. Super intense, heavy as balls, loud as sh!t, thrashy f@#$in' metal. This coming from a total metal head....GO WATCH THEM PLAY!”
— Elbow Room, Wichita Kansas
"There is something strikingly retro-thrash about Necropanther’s music and presentation. Yet it sounds like an original band from the first wave of thrash in the ‘80’s rather than a cheap imitator. Necropanther’s self-titled debut is a dystopian science-fiction novel in álbum form, and reminiscent of mid-‘80’s death metal like early Autopsy in the best way."

METAL TEMPLE: Marcus "Big Daddy" Garcia: "...An Amazing Musical Work.
It was mixed by Eric Rutan at Mana Recording Studio, and mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music, and the result couldn’t be better: clean, heavy and aggressive, with all the instrumental tunes in great shape and filling the spaces of the songs. Technical, brutal, heavy and with mixed influences, “Necropanther” is a lovely album, with 12 excellent songs that will get you for sure.” Songwriting 10/10 Originality 9/10 Metal Temple NECROPANTHER Review
"This debut is a fantastic piece of nostalgic bliss with modern polish that only accentuates the positives. All in all, it feels like a succinct piece of audio excellence; a professional production and clear sound with influences from the best parts of metal’s past. There’s not a bad track in here and there’s no filler to waste your time. Tracks that have become my favorites are interspersed throughout the album, maintaining the interest of the listener throughout this journey through time. In a world filled with the mundane, fresh music is a necessity to stay alive when there are Cyberdyne killing machines from the future and panthers on the prowl. Follow the panther and heed the words of Kyle Reese, “Come with me if you want to live.” If Necropanther’s debut is this strong, their future is looking bright, even though the Skynet dystopia is inevitable, at least the end of humanity will have a good soundtrack."

LOKI MEDIA - Brad Gustafson:
"Dust off your neck braces people, Denver’s Necropanther has just dropped a fierce 3 track preview from their upcoming self-titled album, and it’s a mountain of aggression bundled into an eight minute and twenty second euphonic punch.
Showcasing adept musicianship characterized by high technical prowess, precision riffs, and a toxic blend of violent thrash metal sounds, Necropanther has wasted no time winning over the local metal scene here in Denver. Now, with the release of their highly anticipated debut album, Necropanther is poised to break through to a national audience in a big way. If the rest of the album delivers anything like the first three tracks, we’re in for a landmark debut. " LOKI Media Review
