Spanish death metal pioneers NECROPHILIAC have just signed to Xtreem Music for the release of their long-awaited sophomore album, which comes 27 years after their legendary debut “Chaopula – Citadel of Mirrors”, released back in 1992 by the pre-Xtreem Music label, Drowned Productions. This new album is being recorded and is set to be finished by the end of the year. Release date is planned for February 2020.
NECROPHILIAC emerged in 1988 and recorded 5 demos before releasing their classic debut album “Chaopula – Citadel of Mirrors” in 1992, becoming a genre milestone within the spanish death metal scene. The band dissolved a year later, and returned in 2016 coinciding with the Xtreem Music re-issue of their album in a 2-CD set with all their demos, under the title of “Maze of Forking Paths”. Since then, the band has been offering selected shows within the spanish territory and writing new songs for what will be their second full-length, which is being recorded by Jesús “Punti” Montilla in the Sonic Banana Studios and will be mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios. The cover art will be a conceptual work created by the artist Artem Grigoryev.
The current lineup of NECROPHILIAC has four of the original members: Bongo (vocals), Ery (guitar), Miguel (guitar) and Sweick (drums), plus the newly incorporated bassist Ramón. The new album will be available in CD and 12 “LP.
