NECROMANTIA_logo

 

The band was created in late 1989 by two like minded individuals: The Magus (bass/vocals) and Baron Blood (8-string bass).

Their aim was to create original, powerful and innovative Diabolical music, replacing the usual 6-string guitars with 8-string bass!

Their first recordings earned them a cult status in the scene since they were very original, ritualistic and utterly sinister!

NECROMANTIA never hesitated to use “non -metal” instruments like: saxophone, percussions e.t.c. in addition to their standard metal orchestrations. And that option made them unique and established their own sound.

They are considered as one of the originators of the Greek Black Metal scene along with ROTTING CHRIST and VARATHRON.

The Magus (bass/vocals)
