The German cult Thrashers NECRONOMICON are coming for a concert in Sofia on May 12th at Club Live & Loud.

NECRONOMICON... the Thrash Cult

One moment that will undoubtedly go down in the annals of Thrash Metal history occurred in Germany in August of 1984, when four young men, Freddy, Lars Honeck, Jürgen Weltin (Jogi) and Axel, decided to launch what was to become the countries’ cult Thrash Metal Band – NECRONOMICON.

Recognizing the urban character and punk roots that made the band so original, fans and media alike responded enthusiastically to the debut album “Necronomicon”, which caught the attention of the Thrash Metal scene, and garnered not only praise for the band, but also created the solid foundations of a fan base that has remained with the band throughout the years. NECRONOMICON’s second album, “Apocalyptic Nightmare” was released 1987 and interest in the band continued to grow significantly worldwide, with South America, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia becoming strongholds. The hit singles, “Magic Forest”, “Dark Land” and “Possessed by Evil” have become Thrash Metal classics and taken on cult status.

The legendary album, “Escalation”, followed, climbing to the Top 30 in the Rock Charts in Greece, but NECRONOMICON’s future was not to be plain sailing. Gama Records’ lack of support and inconsistencies caused many problems, and the band was forced to go through a long and expensive court case in order to regain ownership of its own name. On top of this, co-founders Jogi, Lala and Axel were unable to continue with the band through either health or personal reasons leaving Freddy as the only original member, and he made NECRONOMICON his life’s purpose and passion.

In 1993, “Screams” was released, but NECRONOMICON dealt with yet another body blow, this time losing all their equipment when the rehearsal room burned to the ground. To make matters worse, the new label disappeared shortly after releasing the album, and the band was once again cheated. But NECRONOMICON’s determination pushed the band forward and after the demo “Possessed Again!” came the highly acclaimed fifth album, “Construction of Evil”, in 2004. The outstanding reviews were a soothing balm on the band’s wounds as they watched it rise to Number 6 in the Spanish charts. The fans went wild and begged for more.

Revenge of the Beast appeared in 2007 and for the first time in the band’s history NECRONOMICON signed with a foreign label. With good reviews and media interest, the band was lifted “out of the shadow” of the great Thrashers, making it into the top 20 of several rock charts and going on to capture many new hearts whilst on tour in Europe and Russia. Even the toughest critics would have to agree that a band which has a fan base that has not only remained loyal, but constantly pulls in new young fans must be endowed with a character and identity all of its own that makes it stand out from the masses.

In 2012, the highly anticipated album, “Invictus”, came on the market and caused quite a stir. The press totally rolled over with praise and showed that the title "Thrash Cult" was not just a nice footnote. With “Invictus”, NECRONOMICON’s individuality and skill in terms of song writing goes from strength to strength, exceeding all expectations with a full sound and terrific production.

The eighth album titled "Pathfinder... Between Heaven And Hell" (2015) finished at 11th place overall in Metal Hammer Magazine and was voted one of the best Metal albums in 2015 in South America.

During 2016-2017, NECRONOMICON played Total Metal Over Europe Tour, visiting Poland, Czech, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece, as well as played several shows in Germany. In June 2017 the band played Argentinean tour; and in May 2018 NECRONOMICON headlined SinFest in Malta.

The last to date album, "Unleashed Bastards", was released in September 2018. Part of the tracks from the new album, as well as old and well known rockers will appear in the band's upcoming tour!

Let there be no doubt in anyone’s mind - NECRONOMICON has never been stronger!
