NECROWRETCH have announced new European tour dates with CEMETERY URN in support of their latest full-length, ‘Satanic Slavery’. On September 6th, the French putrid death metal outfit will kick off their tour at the Killtown Death Fest in Copenhagen (DK) and continue to destroy 7 more countries before a final curtain at the NRW Death Fest in Wermelskirchen (DE) on September 21st.
Front-man Vlad comments:
“Sinners! NECROWRETCH, in conspiracy with CEMETERY URN, will devastate Europe this September. After a first salvo mostly focused on France last year, 2018 will see our satanic sorcery spread upon many different countries. It’s also a great honor for us to be part of festivals again, such as Kill Town Death Fest and NRW. In addition to these dates, the live album ‘Welcome to Your Funeral’ shall be released and available during this tour. The funeral is about to begin.”

Third strike is deadly. NECROWRETCH hammer out album number three in an all-out attack on everything that is glossy and polished in modern metal. ‘Satanic Slavery’ is dirty, gritty, mean, and beautifully untamed. This record spells DEATH METAL in capital letters without embracing mindless nostalgia.
NECROWRETCH are letting their roots clearly shine through. Early death metal with clearly audible thrash elements play a large role on ‘Satanic Slavery’. Echoes of POSSESSED or DARK ANGEL are equally present as fiercely rasping black metal vocals, and the melodic attitude of Swedish influences with a dash of DISSECTION.
When harsh vocalist and guitarist Vlad created NECROWRETCH almost ten years ago, he drew inspiration from various extreme sources such as IMPALED NAZARENE, NIHILIST, and MARDUK as well as Floridian and South American death metal acts. After several line up changes, Vlad was joined by drummer Ilmar in 2013 and NECROWRETCH immediately hit the scene hard when their debut full-length ‘Putrid Death Sorcery’ arrived with a massive impact the same year. Their strong connection to the underground was emphasised with a following compilation of earlier material under the name ‘Bestial Rites 2009 – 2012’ (2013). With sophomore album ‘With Serpents Scourge’ (2015), NECROWRETCH added some musical twists and turns that revealed influences by Swedish black death pioneers such as DARK FUNERAL, DISSECTION and NECROPHOBIC. Followed by several tours and festivals across Europe and Asia, NECROWRETCH have proven that French extreme metal is still alive and kicking! Now the French have perfected their gruesome vision of death metal without losing the original recipe which made their success. Brace for impact, NECROWRETCH offer true ‘Satanic Slavery’.
