First re-release of the second full-length album by the cult German Thrash Metal band.
Necronomicon were one of the many Underground Thrash bands that didn't gain the recognition or respect they truly deserved. Hailing from Germany, they never broke through and achieved the level of acclaim or renown as the 'Big Three' of German Thrash, those being Kreator, Destruction and Sodom.
"Apocalyptic Nightmare" originally was released in 1987 and shows a band capable to truly catch the dark and brutal German Thrash Metal spirit. The music on here is raw, straightforward Thrash Metal the way it used to be played in the early 80s. There is a big influence from Destruction present, and to a lesser extent from Sodom's first few records. A gritty production increases the intensity present on many of the songs, with simple yet effective, 'rough' sounding riffs played at a high pace driving them forward. Adding to this is the guitar tone, which is scratchy with a lot of treble present. The vocals are harsh yells that sound undeniably German, complimenting the style of riffing nicely.
Necronomicon are still active today after 30 years in the Underground and they are still playing Thrash Metal, so that should tell you enough about their credibility. If you're into obscure and evil Thrash Metal, you will definetely love this!!
Limited to 500 copies (150 black + 350 purple) vinyl with poster, insert and 425gsm heavy cardboard cover. We can't guarantee the color of the vinyl, because items are sealed and share the same barcode.
