Nekromantheon started out in early 2005 with only one goal in mind: To play fast, evil and dirty thrash metal in the way of the old gods. Influenced by the classics of Slayer, Sadus, Kreator, Dark Angel and Sepultura, they unleashed their attack on modern metal.
After the release of the "We're Rotting" EP in early 2007, the band had already built a name for themselves in the underground scene. As the band got more and more focused on capturing the spirit of the 80's, guitarist Arild "Arse" Myren Torp, and drummer Christian "Kick" Holm started building their own recording studio. Shortly their very own “KickArse Studio” was ready in Kolbotn, Norway, the hometown of the mighty Darkthrone.
With their own creative pit available their first full length album, entitled "Divinity of Death" was released shortly. This intense evocation of evil turned some heads indeed, and earned the band a spot at Maryland Death Fest 2010 and the highly prestigious, yet extremely underground, Live Evil Festival in London the same year.
Now, this powerful trio has regressed even further back to the glorious days of real metal, breaking the chains to all that is plastic. Their second full-length is even faster, filthier, and more evil than ever! With "Rise, Vulcan Spectre", Nekromantheon have truly summoned the ancient Greek gods of havoc, and will let nothing stand in the way of this unholy blood offering.
