Soulseller Records release Necromantia - 'Nekromanteion - A Collection of Arcane Hexes' on 4th April 2014.
A new double CD from cult Greek Black Metal band Necromantia, featuring demos, splits, early works and more is set to be released by Soulseller Records on the fourth of April 2014.
The Magus states:
"Nekromanteion is the sacred place where the art of Necromantia (Necromancy) is performed. A dark haven, hidden from the common eyes where the necromancer practices and evolves his magnum arcanum. Likewise, this double CD compilation is a collection of almost all our works which are not included in our official albums, meaning demos, promos, splits, compilations, early works, covers etc. It is the first time that all of these rare gems are gathered in a double volume. Necromantia was always a band who followed it's own dark path music wise. We created, not followed. We influenced and gave shape to the musical directions of younger bands and musicians. With Nekromanteion, we offer you a full view of our wanderings through the abyss since our profane birth in 1989..... Be not afraid to look into the Everos, although you must know that Everos will look back into you...... Rejoice...".
The double album even features Pre-Necromantia material under the monicker of Necromancy.
As you can see, this is definitely a must-buy for all fans of black metal, as it shows the roots and progression of one of the greatest bands to hail from Greece, and the founder of the Greek black metal scene, which also includes Rotting Christ amongst many more.
