“Extremely refreshing, catchy and greatly produced. This is how 80’s metal must be in 2020!
TANKARD | Gerre
“Great songs, great singers, great production! That’s what eighties-inspired heavy metal has to sound like in 2020!”
ROCK IT (D) | Gerald Siebenmorgen
The German heavy metal hope NECK CEMETERY just announced the release of their debut album “Born in a Coffin” on October 9th via REAPER ENTERTAINMENT.
The album was produced in February and March 2020 in the German “Gernhart” studios in collaboration with producer Martin Buchwalter who is known in the Hard & Heavy scene for his work with TANKARD, DESTRUCTION, TOM ANGELRIPPER, PAUL DI´ANNO, SUIDAKRA and many more. For guest contributions the band was able to win scene veteran Chris Boltendahl (GRAVE DIGGER) as well as guitarist Michael Koch (ex-ALTANTEAN KODEX).
The guys also reveal the cover artwork of the new album. It was done by Besil Wrathbone who has already drawn for SODOM and the skateboard brand “Koloss”, among others.
The band states:
“Neckbreakers! We are very happy to unveil the cover artwork for our upcoming debut album “Born in a Coffin” today. The artwork was done by Besil Wrathbone, with whom we have worked together in the past. The idea was to bring up a little “Tales from the Crypt” feeling – and we think Besil did a great job. More information about the record will follow in the coming weeks. Feed the night!”
NECK CEMETERY is the joint baby of real music lovers who have already gained years of stage experience in various bands: Jens (v., ex-Aleatory, ex-Season Of Flames), Boris (g., ex-Black Sheriff), Yorck (g., Sodom, ex-Beyondition), Matt (b., Hornado) and Lukas (dr., Black Sheriff).
The five-piece combo from Cologne and the Ruhr area play heavy metal the way themselves love it – sometimes worn, sometimes fast, sometimes serious and sometimes with a wink, but always with a lot of heart and soul.
Stay tuned for more info.
