Streaming Now! Necronomicon Ex Mortis’ Classic Death Metal Self Titled Horror EP!
Chicago, USA’s Necronomicon Ex Mortis is a bubbling cauldron of 80’s horror movies, 80’s shred goods, modern production, and tight thrash metal. They are now releasing their debut self-titled EP, which serves as the trailer for the epic full-length that is to come out down the road. They mean to draw listeners in and trap them in a classic horror movie, on VHS of course. The four-track record presents a variety of techniques and elements, delivered with precision and professionalism. They detail the tracks listers can expect:
““Earth Cancer” is old-school death metal about angering God so he curses the human race with overpopulation; “Celestial Tomb” is a Swedish-style rager with an interesting melodic twist. Lyrically, it was inspired by the chalice dungeons in Bloodborne. “Nocturnal” is a combination of Michael’s favorite thrash riffs. It’s about murdering teenagers at a summer camp. “The Burning” is about an acclaimed 80s horror movie. Musically, it is the most complex to play, it involves a key change, it’s the fastest song on the EP, and the most interesting.”
Brutal and melodic, Necronomicon Ex Mortis pays homage to the death metal shred gods such as Yngwie, Vinnie Moore, Paul Gilbert, and Derek Taylor as well as horror classics, 80 horror movies, horror games, and HP Lovecraft. They’re hoping this EP will gather a small fanbase and help them establish a footing in the metal world.
Produced and mixed by Charlie Waymire at Ultimate Studios with album artwork done by Lucas Korte, the self-titled EP is streaming in full ahead of its release via its premiere on NoCleanSinging HERE.
Necronomicon Ex Mortis is recommended for fans of Black Dahlia Murder, Obscura, Arsis, and Megadeth.
