ALBUM Plague Eater
LABEL Gates of Hell Records
Out May 27, 2022
Relentless, raw and ravaging black/thrash from the depths of the German metal underground!
Gates of Hell Records will issue remastered version of the band’s 2021 self-released Plague Eater full-length on vinyl this May.
The #reissue is just rewards for the young quartet who have been ravaging European stages since their 2013 formation.
The band was created by vocalist Akheron and guitarist Ægror after the dissolution of their previous band, Peremptor. Originally named Dioxin, the pair subsequently tapped bassist Impiöus and drummer Beheader and recorded a demo before releasing the Nekkrofukk EP in 2015. It took Nekkromaniac another six years to bring Plague Eater to life, but the wait was worth it.
The album is a brilliant blend of old-school German thrash and necro black metal.
Plague Eater’s arresting, blazing eight songs were born from the band’s dedication to the almighty riff and the power it holds. Nekkromaniac is unconcerned with convention, let alone technicality and a formula. Instead, the band’s no-compromises-allowed approach unfurls songs that are crude, raw and dark — just like the ’80s masters that had little time for limitations and rules. This approach birthed Plague Eater: The bane of mankind. The threatening death grasps impending over our heads. The infection that lurks through the sewers. It’s a formless creature without any physical appearance bringing woe and eternal doom. And it’s spreading like wildfire…
