Necronomicon Signs With Massacre Records, "Invictus" On The Way

German thrash legends Necronomicon have signed with Massacre Records. The band will release new album "Invictus," more details of which will surface soon. The press release reads:

"Since 28 years the band members are dedicating their lives to thrash metal. Everything began in 1984 when four young men, Freddy, Lars Honeck, Jürgen Weltin (Jogi) and Axel, decided to form NECRONOMICON.

"Recognizing the urban character and punk roots that made the band so original, fans and media alike responded enthusiastically to the debut album 'Necronomicon'. NECRONOMICON’s second album, 'Apocalyptic Nightmare' was released in 1987 and interest in the band continued to grow significantly worldwide.

"The legendary album 'Escalation' followed, climbing to the Top 30 in the Rock Charts in Greece. Unfortunately, co-founders Jogi, Lala and Axel were unable to continue with the band, leaving Freddy as the only original member, and he made NECRONOMICON his life’s purpose and passion.

"During the following years, NECRONOMICON released further albums and demos. Even the toughest critics would have to agree that a band which has a fan base that has not only remained loyal, but constantly pulls in new young fans must be endowed with a character and identity all of its own that makes it stand out from the masses.

"Since December 2010, Freddy had been busy writing new songs for the highly anticipated new album, 'Invictus' which will be produced at the Arsen Music Studios in Breisach and Berlin. Sound guru Achim Köhler will once again handle the mix and mastering. The guest musicians are none other than Randy Black (Ex-Annihilator) and Ben Krahl (Final Kings).

"Let there be no doubt in anyone’s mind - NECRONOMICON has never been stronger! Beware the beast!"

The Canadian band is on Napalm. The German band has about eight years on them...having formed in 1983.
