Today, Invictus Productions announces November 26th as the international release date for a reissue of the debut demo of the UK’s Necromaniac, Morbid Metal, on cassette tape format.
Formed in 2011, London’s Necromaniac at last emerged from the slime of time eternal in 2015 with the five-song Morbid Metal demo. With members possessing a wealth of underground experience spanning the last couple decades – not to mention that those members hail from such countries as Spain, Greece, Poland, and most recently Sweden, altogether adding a more exotic flavor elusive to most UK bands – it’s not surprising that the band’s first recording was such a firestorm of ancient energy. Very much “old” but very much far from trite “retro” posturing, Morbid Metal was – and still is – everything its title promises, whipping forth a fury faintly/variously reminiscent of classic Nifelheim, Germany’s Poison, Hungary’s Tormentor, Root, and Invictus alumni Vomitor. Hideous, haunting, and most definitely fucking METAL!
As such, Necromaniac will be delivering their debut album through Invictus in the coming year, and this new edition of Morbid Metal serves as a (re)introduction to their sinister ways. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
In the meantime, stream Morbid Metal in its entirety HERE at Invictus‘ Bandcamp, where the new cassette version can be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
