Greece’s own rotten Death Metal savages NECROVOROUS are set to release Plains of Decay September 29 on Dark Descent Records. A vinyl LP version of the album is also in the works.
Known for their undying adoration for everything sleazy, macabre and genuinely disturbing, the NECROVORUS ghouls have risen from their crypt after years of hibernation and are staring at you with bloodshot eyes while brandishing scepters made of human bones.
The world’s best attempts to keep from waken the beast have failed miserably. Proceed with cauthon, as the death metal equivalent of Jörg Buttgereit flick “Plains of Decay” is coming to melt with your brain. To avoid fainting, keep on repeating …”It’s only a record… It’s only a record… It’s only a record…”

NECROVOROUS was created in 2005 by Vangelis F. (Shit Eater – Drums) and Periklis G. (Pig Fucker – guitars/bass/vocals).
Inspired by Death Metal and Grindcore gods such as:AUTOPSY, DR.SHRINKER, IMPETIGO, HELLHAMMER, ASPHYX, (early) DEATH, MASSACRE, NECROVORE, MASTER/DEATHSTRIKE, NECROPHAGIA, the band started spreading some serious havoc and rampage with a series of three demos (later re-released as a single tape). In the beginning, the band’s direction was pure gore, a sense of evolution and the stinking air of a more distinctive Death Metal approach started appearing with the recording of their side for the self-financed and sold out split 10″ with MEATHOLE INFECTION (now GRAVE RITUAL). After the release of the split 10″ the line-up collapsed, with only Vangelis F. remaining, a fact that lead to a short period of inactivity .
In early 2009, Kostas K. (also in EMBRACE OF THORNS) joined as a guitarist/bassist/vocalist. This was a beginning of a new morbid era for NECROVOROUS. The first born, putrid offspring of that unholy intercourse was the Crypt of the Unembalmed Cadavers 7″ EP. The debut full-length Funeral for the Sane (released in 2010) found NECROVOROUS more oppressive, filthy and ominous, causing some considerable stir in the worldwide underground. The band went on to perform live, culminating in a performance at Killtown Deathfest along with FUNEBRARUM, GRAVE MIASMA, SONNE ADAM among others.
The following years found our adorable ghouls getting back into their coffins with little to no activity. However the split EP with the Japanese Deathmongers ANATOMIA received praise. Everything seemed hopeless and decayed but 2017 brought the resurrection…
