August 1984 is without a doubt a moment in thrash metal history, because it is the moment that the german band NECRONOMICON was formed.
After only two years of existence, the band released their first album entitled “Necronomicon” in 1986, which very rapidly attracts a following in the midst of the thrash metal community. Point zero in the bands early career has to be the release of their second full length album entitled “Apocalyptic Nightmare”, material which was launched in 1987 and brought with it the first successful tracks of the band: “Magic Forest”, “Dark Land”
and “Possessed by Evil”, as well as an incredible world tour.
After two more albums though, disaster strikes: the band loses all its equipment in a fire, the record label they were signed to goes bankrupt and forces the band into a long and costly lawsuit. However, the determination of the band made the release of “Construction of Evil” possible in 2004, their fifth full length album, material which gave the band a huge leap forward, rapidly reaching the metal charts. What follows is a prolific period for Necronomicon full of new world tours, three more devastating albums, releases which defy all expectations.
The newest album is entitled “Unleashed Bastards” and was released in September 2018. It will be premiered to the Bucharest public on Monday the 6th of May at The Pub – Universitatii.
