NECRONOMICON are touring in support of their pulverizing new album, ‘Advent of the Human God’.
With ‘Advent Of The Human God,’ NECRONOMICON present themselves at a new height in their long lasting career, which began as early as 1988 with the founding of the band by guitarist and singer Rob “The Witch” in the deep northern part of Canadian province Quebec, called the “Fjord of Saguenay.”
The Canadian veterans keep their tracks as gloriously epic as furiously massive and harsh. Songs like “The Golden Gods,” “Unification Of The Four Pillars,” “Crown Of Thorns,” and “I Bringer Of Light” tell of experienced songwriting and an eclectic wide range of influences that flow into the sound of NECRONOMICON. Nodding to DIMMU BORGIR and BEHEMOTH to DEICIDE and SUFFOCATION, these extreme metal addicts carve their own sound out of the much cherished ingredients of brutal dark music.
NECRONOMICON have a well-earned reputation for quality by releasing material only when ready and satisfied with the outcome ever since their demo entitled “Morbid Ritual” (1992) firmly established their name within the underground. “The Silver Key” EP (1996) led to mainstream recognition on a national level, but their debut album “Pharaoh Of Gods” (1999) and the sophomore “The Sacred Medicines” (2003) did even more to establish the band as a household name in Canada. “Return Of The Witch” (2010) marked the international break-through for NECRONOMICON, and saw them performing at prestigious festivals such as Inferno (Norway), Ragnarok (Germany), and the Barge To Hell metal cruise among others, while sharing stages with acts such as CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR, BEHEMOTH, and MORBID ANGEL, to name but a few. Their steady advance around the globe grew considerably in impact by their next full-length “Rise Of The Elder Ones” (2013). Now NECRONOMICON are more than ready for the next step with ‘Advent Of The Human God’. Lay back and savour the darkness!
“Necronomicon continues to be one of extreme metal’s most underrated majicks… [they] channel the best moments of Behemoth and symphonic death à la Fleshgod Apocalypse while remaining entirely Necronomicon.” – Bravewords
“…old-school death metal brought closer into the modern era, but without sacrificing those big booming blast beats or guttural growls.” – MetalUnderground.com
