MB Premiere: NECROMANTE - 'Necro Fire Angel'
Today, in cooperation with Iron Bonehead Productions, we are proud to present the new single 'Necro Fire Angel' from NECROMANTE's highly anticipated second album, XI, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Formed in 2007, NECROMANTE patiently stirred their cauldron of sound over the course of a couple demos, a mini-album, and a live album. Hailing from Brazil, within that cauldron, of course, can be found ancient ingredients like Sarcofago, Vulcano, Sextrash, Mystifier, and Impurity, but the power-duo finesse forth a sound that's less focused on tempting the corners of chaos as it is conjuring an arcane, otherworldly aura.
After nearly five years of eerie silence (a super-limited live tape was released after the debut album), NECROMANTE return with their second full-length, XI. Immediately, it is felt: XI continues on from that celebrated first full-length and spelunks in new dungeons altogether. For one, NECROMANTE's instrumental prowess has tightened whilst remaining requisitely loose; this allows their ever-deepening grasp of dynamics to penetrate the soul as well as boil the tension to an intense degree during the album's many hypnotic mid-tempo passages. To that, this subtly doomier aspect nods to ancient touchstones like classic Mortuary Drape, early Samael, and even touches of old deathrock; even with frequent yet well-timed bouts of violence, the aura of XI is funereal and more than a bit eerie. More than anything, NECROMANTE have perfected their sound within clearly marked boundaries, but more importantly have brewed potions of strong songwriting that work magickally within those boundaries. In turn, the vision of XI appears boundless and brilliant - ancient, epic, and literally underground!
