Latest AntropomorphiA News
Below is our complete AntropomorphiA news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
After having released the band's first ever video clip for the song "Psuchagogia" in late 2012, AntropomorphiA returns to the front with a second clip from the album "Evangelivm Nekromantia."
The "Debauchery In Putrefaction" video can now be viewed in the player below. Metal Blade also comments:
"With an album banning hanging over their heads, the easiest road for the band to proceed with the project of a new videoclip would have been by providing the criticizers with exactly what they want: An overdose of gore balancing in between art and kitsch, stirring things up just the right amount. Instead, the band chose to take a different approach. Opposed to a gore obsessed videoclip, which would have been too easy, it was decided to leave a respectable amount of room for people's own imagination. Interesting to know what the very same criticizers would make of this in their own minds. AntropomorphiA once again worked with Maurice Swinkels for this video clip."
Vocalist/guitarist Ferry comments: "'Evangelivm Nekromantia' transcends further and represents much more than what critics call a gore based story, so to us the logical continuation to portray that story is one with a more darker view."
AntropomorphiA will be performing on Neurotic Deathfest 2013 and Extremefest 2013 in May. More live appearances will be announced in given time. More...
Necromantic death metallers Antropomorphia have added a second guitar player to their ranks. Comments the band:
”After an extended journey through the mazes of darkness a new fire has been lit to illuminate our ritual masses.
"We are proud to announce that we've welcomed a new member to our nekromantian horde: J. (full name Jos van den Brand) is an experienced guitar player who we know for many years and played in several prestigious Dutch (death) metal acts since the early '90's.
"With J in our presence the preparations have begun to open the portals and to set ablaze every stage that comes on our path/journey. Ave Luciferi.“ More...
Dutch death metallers Antropomorphia have reacted to a letter that label Metal Blade Records received from the German BPJM (“Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons”) that included an indexing request for the band's latest album "Evangelivm Nekromantia." Metal Blade states:
"The letter claims the cover artwork of the album as well as the song 'Fleisch' illustrate and address killings and violence in an autotelic way. Furthermore they don´t seem to be too happy about the album title. A newspiece in German can be found at this location."
Comments the band: “We've made certain people nervous and uncomfortable with our music and lyrical content. In order to 'protect' the children, it's quite possible 'Evangelivm Nekromantia' will be banned and removed from German stores. Through their ridiculous and hypocrite way of thinking they are not letting people use their own intelligence or freedom of choice, this in an era where you turn on the news and see the world's vile and repulsive excrements in full HD. These people are nothing more than a bunch of pitiful sheep! They might think this ban will be castigation but it will only strengthen us in our opposition towards these sad shallow people that crowd the world with their insignificant lives. To us, it's the perfect representation of people without perception other than a retarded opinion about an artistic expression.”

Comments the band: "The tale continues… This time the crypt portals to the song 'Debauchery in Putrefaction' will be opened and we'll descend deeper into the story of this post-mortal display of lesbian affection and the visual aspect of 'Evangelivm Nekromantia'. 'Debauchery in Putrefaction' will be immersed in a dark and bleak atmosphere therefore we continue our collaboration with Maurice Swinkels, who is also responsible for the first visual chapter 'Psuchagogia'."

Dutch death metal act AntropomorphiA has collaborated with Rock Hard magazine in Germany for the worldwide premiere the "Psuchagogia" video clip. "Psuchagogia" comes off the band's new album "Evangelivm Nekromantia," set to be released this Friday on CD and LP. Check out the video below or through Rock Hard Magazine.
The clip was directed by video producer Maurice Swinkels and shot on location in Leipzig, Germany. Comments AntropomorphiA singer/guitarist Ferry Damen: "We talked about recording a video for 'Psuchagögia' a few months ago and decided to bring in Maurice Swinkels from Younique Film for the visual awakening of this track. I told Maurice some of the ideas I had regarding the 'storyline' and he came up with a great location in the eastern part of Germany, which turned out to be perfect for documenting this somewhat disturbingly and dark tale. We shot the video on September 8th and during the shoot we seriously got beneath the horrid surface of the tale we wanted to tell. It's our first ever video and I can say that we are thrilled about the way it turned out!" More...

Dutch death metal kings AntropomorphiA have released the second song of their comeback album "Evangelivm Nekromantia." Navigate to Rock Hard Germany here to inhale the raw power of "Anointment By Sin." Comments AntropomorphiA singer/guitarist Ferry Damen on the song:
"When we were recording vocals we invited our good friend Eclipse (Verbum Verus, ex-Sauron) to add some demented screams of suffering to the track 'Impure Desecration'. After this track was draped with eternal sickness I started to work on 'Anointment by Sin', a track that is part of the second chapter and basically handles about one of the female figures who gets murdered by her religiously obsessed husband who thinks of her and her new born flesh as unpure after she shared some perversive sexual acts with a woman, she believes is the true love of her life. Eclipse really liked this murder tale and added some vocals on this track as well…with crushing result" More...

Death metal act AntropomorphiA recently signed with Metal Blade Records, and now the band has released a first single from the new album "Evangelivm Nekromantia." Listen to "Psuchagogia" to the player below.
The upcoming "Evangelivm Nekromantia" album will be released on October 19th/22nd via Metal Blade Records in Europe on CD and LP and digitally in North America on October 23rd.
Metal Blade Records has issued the following statement about inking a deal with death metal act Antropomorphia:
"Metal Blade is proud to announce the signing of Holland's best kept secret over the past 24 years! AntropomorphiA is legion to Death Metal lunatics of the underground and will infect soon enough all worshippers of classical Death Metal and bands such as BOLT THROWER, GRAVE and AUTOPSY as well as newer high class acts as BLOODBATH or HAIL OF BULLETS.
"AntropomorphiA was created under the influence from bands such as Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Infernäl Mäjesty and Bathory in a tiny town in Holland in 1989.
"Over the years they got more and more brutal, released several demos and the Necromantic Love Songs MCD in 1993, but went on a hiatus in the late 90s since other bands became more important.
"Fast forward 2009 when other projects moved into the background, AntropomorphiA got re-activated. The line-up is still the same, original members, F (vox/guitar), M (drums), S (bass) form the trinity that is AntropomorphiA till this day.
"In early 2011 AntropomorphiA made their first live appearance since 2001 at the Neurotic Deathfest where they put up a convincing brutal show. At the end of 2011 most of the new record was recorded and the band is taking their time to make sure this album is something more, something huge, resulting in Evangelivm Nekromantia - an album consisting of nine tracks, divided into three chapters of each three songs. Lyrically driven by nekrophilae, murder, necromancy and necrolesbian lust. Mastered at Necromorbus Studios by Tore Stjerna." More...
