Nekrogoblikon Announces "Power" Release

Nekrogoblikon is set to unleash “Power” on August 27th, 2013. The band issued the following press release:

"What happens when you put a bunch of bloodthirsty music-loving goblins together? Well, a lot of disembowelment, but also a lot of catchy tunes. Formed six millennia ago, and practicing only every other leap year on a full moon, Nekrogoblikon has finally perfected their brand of crushing music. Arguably the first ever goblin metal band ever, NNekrogoblikon is pleased to announce the upcoming release of their brand new crusher of a record, Power, hitting stores on August 27, 2013. Power is produced by Nekrogoblikon, and is mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, Children of Bodom).

"For a taste of what Nekrogoblikon is about, check out their recently released music video for the track ‘No One Survives’ (featuring Jon Lajoie of Comedy Central’s 'The League' and adult entertainment star Kayden Kross), which went viral shortly after posting and already has 2 MILLION+ views. The video is directed by Brandon Dermer, who has since shot a Major Lazer video, as well as the new Wavves video. Dermer had the chance to catch Nekrogoblikon performing in front of a small crowd of people at The Cobalt in Canoga Park, CA, immediately fell in love with the band, the rest is history. The video for ‘No One Survives’ ended up pulling in 1 million+ views in its first week of release." More...

Nekrogoblikon Posts Album Update On "Stench"

Nekrogoblikon has issued an update on work on their latest album as well as a tentative tracklisting. Here are the pertinent parts of the band's update:

"Hails, goblin fans. Here's a quick update on what we've been up to: album album album. As many of you know, we've been hauling ass writing songs for almost two years now. Thankfully we can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have 12 sweet tracks almost done for our sophomore album 'STENCH.' We need to polish off the last 3 and we are going into the studio December 29th with the great Zack Ohren to start tracking drums. We've been playing most of these songs live in and around our home base of Santa Barbara, to fantastic response. You can check out 'No One Survives' and 'A Feast' on our myspace."

"We're also going to be announcing a new (additional) keyboard player, as Nekrogoblikon is far too epic of a band for only two synthmasters... so now we have three. Nicholas Von Doom is going to be reducing his keyboarding role and concentrating more on being a ferocious frontman. You front row fans are gonna be covered with his phlegm at our next show, I promise."

Here is a tentative track list for "Stench": More...
