gather talented musicians and celebrate the music he'd grown up with. Necronaut is the result of this idea.

Bathory, Venom, Black Sabbath, but honestly the range of interest can stretch
much larger, especially knowing the line-up for this record.
Necronaut's a kind of superband with members from the biggest Swedish
names, starting with the frontman himself.
Other big participating names are affiliated with Entombed, Autopsy, Watain, At
