The Magus states:
“So here we are: the epitaph of a band. A band that will not release any new music again. A band that lost half of its soul. A band that descended into the Abyss….
“I always dreamt of a box including all of our recordings….not as an epitaph though, not under these circumstances….strangely life and death follow their own path….
“Well, for the first and last time these are the complete recordings of Necromantia in all their glory. From our early days to our last spell.
“The Circle Music made my wish a reality and supported this great project of releasing all our stuff on vinyl, packed in a luxurious box with gold embossing properly entitled: Epitaph: The Complete Worx.
“Each one of the recordings have been exceptionally remastered by George Emmanuel of the infamous Pentagram Studio adding a fresh and deadly aura to our music.
“All of our music is represented, guarded and expressed through 9 daemonic entities: Pazuzu. Satan, Set, Medusa, Typhon, Ahriman, Lucifer, Tiamat and Leviathan.
“Each of them is made by the talented artist Innominadus Horridus who not only paid attention to each detail but after a lot of discussions we had between us, he managed to capture the magical essence of the existence and symbolism behind everything each one of these entities represents in the physical and the spiritual, occult world and the way it is connected to our music.
“You can not only see them on the covers of our albums but they are also included as 9 prints on parchment paper along with their seal so you can place them in your chambers and invoke their power and virtues.
“In detail the vinyl records are:
- The Utter Darkness (promo 90)
- Black Arts (our split with Varathron)
- Crossing The Fiery Path
- Scarlet Evil., Witching Black
- Ancient Pride
- IV: Malice
- The Sound Of Lucifer Storming Heaven
- The Serpent Skull (our split with Αχεροντας plus the covers from “Covering Evil”)
- To The Depths We Descend…
The box comes in 2 versions:
- 3 black, 3 red, 3 gold vinyls limited in 500 copies
- 9 gold vinyls exclusively from the NECROMANTIA Bandcamp limited to 166 copies
“I have confirmed with the label to keep the pre-order price at affordable levels, so our fans, our supporters and our legions can indulge themselves fully.
“Choose your poison, raise your glasses filled with the elixir of Hell and celebrate our Epitaph”
