NECROPHILIAC, Spain’s pioneer Death Metal band, has just signed to Xtreem Music for the release of their long-awaited 2nd album, 27 years after their legendary debut “Chaopula – Citadel of Mirrors” released in 1992 by the pre-Xtreem Music label, Drowned Productions. This new album is in the process of recording, with its planned completion by the end of the year and will be released in February 2020.
NECROPHILIAC emerged in 1988 and recorded 5 demos before releasing their classic debut album “Chaopula – Citadel of Mirrors” in 1992, becoming one of the milestones of the genre within the Spanish Death Metal scene. The band dissolved a year later, and returned in 2016 coinciding with the re-issue, through Xtreem Music, of their album in a 2-CD set with all their demos, under the title of “Maze of Forking Paths“. Since then, the band has been offering selected shows within the spanish territory and writing new songs for what will be their second full length, which is being recorded by Jesús “Punti” Montilla in the Sonic BananaStudios and will be mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios. The cover art will be a conceptual work created by the artistArtem Grigoryev (www.facebook.com/grigoryev.art).
The current lineup of NECROPHILIAC, has four of the original members: Bongo (vocals), Ery (guitar), Miguel (guitar) and Sweick (drums), plus the newly incorporated bassist Ramón. The new material that the band is recording, from what we have been able to hear, will not disappoint any of the band’s followers and will be released on both CD and 12 “LP.
