Crypt Monarch unleash their necromantik stoner doom debut, The Necronaut, out today (July 23rd) via Electric Valley Records digitally and on different variants of vinyl: Neon Green Splatter Black, Neon Pink, and Ultra LTD “Necro Edition”.

The band states the following to illustrate the album’s backstory:
“An imperious and vengeful dead King is brought back to life with a thirst for carnage and death. Bring out your dead!"
Invoked in mid-2020 by the members from Age of the Wolf and VoidOath, Crypt Monarch hails from San José, Costa Rica. The power trio’s self-labeled “necromantik stoner doom” style is replete with malevolent riffs in crushing intensity, groove-oozing atmosphere, and psychedelic pathways.
The debut album, The Necronaut, was recorded and produced by the band in a cabin in the woods during March/April 2021. A 36 minute, 3 song monolith of séance infused riffage and fuzz-fueled grooves, this record chronicles the voyage of a dishonored king brought back from the dead to destroy its warlock’s enemies.
The eerie lair has been disturbed, the doomed ruler is now awake and chained to slaughter.
