View Full Version : Necrophagia
03-27-2002, 04:49 PM
I noticed the upcoming release of Last House on Dead End Street (which I'm eagerly awaiting) will include a video by Necrophagia. Does anyone here actually enjoy their work? I personally thought the Necrophagia video on the dvd of The Beyond was totally out of place and pathetic,I had never even heard of Necrophagia until viewing that disc. I've also read that we will be "blessed" by another one of their videos on Grindhouse's release of Cannibal Holocaust which will be released someday hopefully soon. Whats up with these labels including these videos? Is there a demand for them? Is there anything about this group I don't know about?
03-27-2002, 04:59 PM
Haha...I think you have to weight at least 275 lbs. to be a member of that band.
The only good thing about "And You Will Live In Terror" is the fact that you can see all the best scenes from "The Beyond" in one place. Other than that, who are these guys? Is one of them the son of Anchor Bay's president or something?
03-27-2002, 06:37 PM
Actually, I believe Necrophagia are friends of the Grindhouse guys and indie filmmaker Jim Van Beber, who also directed the Beyond video. You must admit though, that video was at least good for a laugh. :D
03-27-2002, 11:58 PM
I like the song on the Beyond personally. I didn't like the band footage though, but if you don't like their kind of music obviously the song is gonna be crappy to you. Zombi3 is right, that Van Beber guy likes them, and is friends with them, all that crap. He actually directed a series of videos for them, and released it as a hour long video called Necrophagia: Through the eyes of the dead, or something to that effect. Its supposed to be really gruesome and have a really realistic skinning scene. But it is just music videos so if you don't like Necrophagia then there's no point, but if you do, there you go. Also just for those who wanna know Phil Anselmo from Pantera is the guitar player in the video who has his back turned to the camera the whole time.

Are you serious - that's Phil? You are talking about the video on the Beyond, right?

Necrophagia has been around for a long, long time. The reason the video looks so amateur is because they're not some sad MTV band that spends millions of dollars to shoot a video. Necrophagia has been around the underground death metal scene for a long time. You wouldn't believe the amount of death bands that are influenced by all the movies we watch. I mean the good ones, not Halloween and shit. All the good underground and euro stuff.

What do you think Lucio Fulci would think about this music?
I've got to say,if you want to play a musical tribute to a great cult classic movie then try to capture some of the mood and spirit of the film in the song. Instead we get this horrid garage band sweating like stuck pigs and playing a laughable audiable asshole they call a tribute...Complete with handpainted satanic sign!!!! I'm certainly glad the video contained so much Beyond footage.If it didn't I doubt I could have validated viewing the whole thing.
If someone was to grab a guitar and do a variation on the score piece "Wait for the Rain" by David Hess in Last House on the Left then that would be acceptable. But I just can't see anyone considering that mess that played on the Beyond dvd as any kind of a serious tribute.
Now don't get me wrong,maybe their stuff on the other upcoming dvds will be alot better. But until I see it I've
got to call a spade a spade.

"Through the Eyes of the Dead" is available on a DVD released by Season of Mist. It differs from the VHS in that it has 2 bonus tracks, interviews with the band and a still gallery. 3 of the videos are original material directed by Van Bebber, the rest are videos compiled of footage from "The Beyond", "Cannibal Holocaust", and "The Last Days of John Martin". In my opinion the Van Bebber shit is really cool! I am a bit biased because I actually like the band :)
03-30-2002, 05:59 PM
OMG! I forgot all about Necrophagia! The Seasons of the Dead was a great album. I recently have been revisiting some of my favorite doom bands of circa 1990 (King Diamond, etc...) and I had long since forgot about that Necro*something* band.
Thanks for the blast from the past.
03-30-2002, 09:19 PM
I enjoy Necrophagia quite a bit, although I wouldn't call them brilliant or anything. However I think that their music is far better than any of thet MTV pretend-metal and shock rock out there, fuck Slipknot, Manson, Korn... I fucking hate that shit, Necrophagia anytime! Holocausto de la Morte, "...like a Fulci Nightmare..."
03-31-2002, 11:48 AM
Ahhhh my second favore band was talked about on this baord and I just noticed!!! I love this band-one of the most original bands in the metal genre these days and one of the godfathers of death metal.I own all their releases and as much merch and collectables as I can. Their music is grand and their love of horror is unmatched by any bands(i mean Killy(the singer) spent over 200 bucks on ebay for one film!!) He also writes for the horror mag Ultra Violent. James Van Bebbers home video he made for these guys is great--full of cheese but come on its one of the bloodiest music videos I have ever seen. I think Fulci would love this! Any band who are will to honor the great Fulci would have made him proud--i mean they even dedicated one of their CDs to Fulci and mention him in songs and write songs about his movies. cant get much better than thaT
05-22-2002, 06:17 AM
If anyone is interested in gore metal then this band is it! Necrophagia is the most elite gore metal bands around. If I had to pick a album to start off with, then go for Holocausto de la Morte.
Hell \nn/:cool:\nn/ Yeah!

NECROPHAGIA The New Face Of Fear - www.bravewords.com
There have been some sinister brewings as of late within the NECROPHAGIA camp, and now the silence has been shattered. Mastermind Killjoy has revamped and reshaped the line up into a whole new formidable beast. Philip Anselmo is out and the new line up is as follows: Killjoy (vocals), Iscariah (ex-Immortal, bass), Frediablo (Gorelord/Wurdulak, guitars), Fug (Wurdulak, guitars), drummer Wayne Fabra and Mirai Kawashima of Sigh on keyboards. The new members had this to say...
Mirai: "I still remember how I was shocked to hear the Necrophagia tracks on Thrash Metal Attack/Speed Metal Hell 3 compilations. I never imagined that I'd join the band 15 years later! The new Necrophagia album will be the heaviest and the creepiest album on the earth. We will destroy!"
Iscariah: "I am really confident at this stage, and I'm sure this will bring my soul to hell. Can’t wait! Necrophagia will rule at all shores and beyond! More Blood, more gore, more everything! Hail Satan! 666"
Fug: "I feel that Necrophagia has become the ultimate killing machine. I'm really excited about the endless possibilities. Worship at the alter of Ola Foss, Lasse Issern!!!!"
Frediablo: "We are taking everything to the next level without loosing our identity. I truly respect what the band has accomplished in the past, but this is easily the best material ever by Necrophagia. We can't wait to get everything recorded and take this vision of horror out on the road"
The band will begin recording their new album, The Divine Art Of Torture, to be released through Season of Mist on Halloween 2002. Song titles will include, 'Rue Morgue Disciple', 'Blaspheme the Body', 'Tombs Of Uncreation', 'Flowers of Flesh and Blood' and 'Faceless'.
Killjoy describes the new material as "Very heavy, violent and horror filled. It is in many ways a homage to Brazilian Director Jose Mojica Marins aka Coffin Joe. His films are extremely blasphemous and his visions directly influenced the mood for writing The Divine Art Of Torture. Necrophagia also plans to work with Mr. Marins on a video, as well as appearing on some new kult
horror/gore DVDs which will be announced shortly."
Necrophagia still plan to record the long anticipated Harvest Ritual, but as guitarist Fug recently stated, "It still needs some work because it's going to be the ultimate horror metal release and we're still in different stages of the song writing process. We want to make certain that we are completely satisfied with every aspect of the album."

i didnt know what to make on the video with the beyond dvd. i thought it was some no name band that sent in there home video and added beyond footage to it, but it does sound like a bad ass band. ill have to try to pick some of there stuff up and give it a try.
06-05-2002, 10:16 AM
This band has been around for quite some time. Needless to say I found out about this band when the video was included on The Beyond DVD. The video the band shot was crappy but the music was heavy and sick enuff to warrant further investigation. I ended up getting my first Necrophagia CD in the form of Holocausto De La Morte. I've been hooked ever since. :D

NECROPHAGIA Part With PHILIP ANSELMO, Revamp Line-Up - www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/

The band—completed by mainman Killjoy and drummer Wayne Fabra—will shortly begin recording their new album, The Divine Art Of Torture, for a Halloween released through Season of Mist Records. Among the tracks set to appear on the forthcoming CD are:
01. Rue Morgue Disciple
02. Blaspheme the Body

holy fucking shit with iscariah and mirai they will be fucking unstoppable!
as for the guys from gorelord and wurdulak.....eh....those bands are shit
06-06-2002, 09:11 AM
Wurdulak are cool I think. They have that old skool death/black metal sound that I love with some thrash moments thrown in for good measure. They sound not to dissimilar from Necrophagia. Gorelord are good to but the drums are to mechanical...they sound to much like Mortician with their heavier than thou drum machine. :D
The Black Death
06-06-2002, 11:58 PM
wurdulak was just very boring....nothing that hasn't been done before and the riffs weren't very interesting either. maniac is kindof an idiot though... AWESOME artwork
for good blackened thrash check out absu
gorelord i really didn't hear much of but what i did hear wasn't very good
06-07-2002, 02:15 AM
Absu's new Tara album is terrorific! The whole album shreds from start to finish...except for those damn bagpipes...yuk. :D
06-08-2002, 02:35 AM
Since we're talking about gore metal here, just wanted to plug my fave gore band ever, IMPETIGO! Has anybody ever heard of them on here? They were the band that really got me into the underground horror/gore film genre more than anybody else. My record label did a tribute CD for them(cheap plug, sorry!) 2 years ago. Other gore metal bands worth checking out:
DEATH (first 2 albums only)
CANNIBAL CORPSE(I only like the first 2)
LAST DAYS OF HUMANITY
REPULSION(godfathers of grind/gore!)
RIGOR MORTIS(first LP is classic)
+ tons more!

Heck no, I don't mind at all! Thanks for posting the cover art and mp3! I usually never promote underground metal on the horror boards because a lot of horror fans hate this kind of stuff and usually get pretty pissed off and annoyed!

Red Stream will be releasing "Season of the Dead" in gatefold LP late this summer. The LP will have a new look designed by artists Michael and Mark Riddick.. Many thanks to them for their talents and dedication to Necrophagia. The LP will also include a Season of the Dead poster. \nn/:cool:\nn/

Wurdulak recently completed recording sessions for the upcoming Creature Feature Vol. 2 (a split release with Gorelord)
They have also recorded their sophomore release titled "Severed Eyes of Possesion". Wurdulak recently signed with Coffin Records. The line up remains the same featuring Maniac and Killjoy on vocals, Fug Frediablo, and Ihizahg on guitar and the rythym section of Iscariah on Bass and Jehmod drums and percussion!
The album cover was designed in a fashion to suggest a "Sequel" look to their debut release"Ceremony in Flames".The band has once again used the extremely talented Patrick Tremblay for the album cover and design layout. Killjoy comented that "he (Tremblay) can capture the true essence of the band, he is very talented and we are extremely pleased with all the artwork he has done for us". Patrick Tremblay is also the mastermind behind the creature feature vol.1 and vol2 designs.
Wurdulak have also recorded the title trrack for the upcoming film "Revelations" which will also appear on Severed Eyes of Possession. Other titles include Rescued by Oblivion, Sin Eater, United Global Misanthropy, Son of Man, The Downfall of Pity, Perpetual Domination, and The Exquisite Taste of Selfishness
Guitarist Fug commented on the new material "We feel this record helps Wurdulak develope our own style and also solidifies this line-up as a serious band, we definately all feel that Wurdulak will be a very strong live act and we're anxious to play some festivals and live shows!"
One other notable change is that Killjoy and Maniac are singing at completely seperate times and on different songs than each other, which is a big change from "Ceremony in Flames" where they both sang together on most of the material. For our next record they'll dp half of the songs, but this time it gives the material a different feel.
Red Stream will soon be manufacturing exclusive Wurdulak merchandise and a picture disc version of the Wurdulak debut Ceremony in Flames.
07-15-2002, 08:52 AM
Wait, so Phil's out of the band? Anyone know why? Probably due to his hectic schedule and not being able to put 100% into the band. The Man has more side projects than Taiwan has whores. I've never heard any of Necro's music aside from the video on The Beyond, but now I think I'm going to have to pick up an album.

I like Necrophagia's music... not one of my fave bands but their Holocausto della morte LP is great... but when I listen to gore metal there is a better chance that it's Exhumed or Autopsy that spins on my Rega P3

Sounds cool and all, but quite frankly I can't get into the anymore. They weren't fantabulous to begin with IMO, but there's nothing there to justify repeat listenings.
02-04-2003, 04:31 PM
I like their old - school sound. There are so many industrial / metal oriented bands today that can't play a guitar straight (with the exception of the godly THORNS of course!) that I cannot hide my liking for Necrophagia. :evil:
02-06-2003, 12:43 PM
I see this thread was brought back up. That's great that Razorback Records posted. I've spent a ton of money there and Billy has always been really cool with me.
As far as all of the bands people have listed go, I've heard all of it. This is the only type of music I listen to. No MTV, radio, nu-metal wanna-be bullshit for me.
I'll be heading to the Nile/Dark Tranquillity/etc. show on the 10th here in Pittsburgh. I catch just about every show that comes my way.

NECROPHAGIA Finish Recording New Album - Blabbermouth (http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/)
NECROPHAGIA have almost completed the recording of their upcoming album, "Harvest Ritual Vol. 1", slated for release in Europe by Season of Mist in the spring of 2005. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Cadavera X", "Return to Texas", "Dead Skin Slave", "Unearthed", "Deathtrip 69", "London (13 Demon Street)", "Excommunicated" and "Stitch Her Further" (co-written by SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison, who also contributed guest vocals and will be in the video for the song as well).
"Harvest Ritual Vol. 1" was recorded in state-of-the-art studios around the world and has been ten months in the making. Mixing duties will be handled by Mark Prator (MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE, OBITUARY) in Tampa Florida.
NECROPHAGIA will be hitting the road as the new release hits stores this spring with an all-new "horrific" stage show. Bill Mosely (a.k.a. Chop Top from "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" and Rob Zombie's "House of 1,000 Corpses") has also contributed to the new record and will star in the video for "London (13 Demon Street)".

Good thread, thanks for the read... I've always been interested in checking out NECROPHAGIA.
Oh, someone mentioned MORTICIAN... I love those guys. They're from Yonkers NY, which is like 5 minutes drive from where I live, and I have a friend who's pals with the band members. Also, the two minute horror clips they put on every other track are also cool. :)

Mortician is cool but if you want NYDM from Yonkers then go with my boy Danny and the mighy Malignancy!
I'm not taking anything away from Mortician, just Danny did backup vocals on my old bands CD.

NECROPHAGIA: Interview with KILLJOY - by Unholiestgoddess (http://denver.erebusmusic.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=4&page=1) (03/15/05)
Necrophagia fuses all of the eerie chills of a good horror movie and all the thrills of metal into a single gratifying sensory experience. Spawned in 1983 by the macabre-minded Killjoy, and driven along by his unswerving commitment to the direction of gore and horror, Necrophagia has hit plenty of speed bumps and potholes along their journey.
Soon after the band's 1987 "Season of the Dead" release, the other members expressed a desire to pursue a more mainstream sound. Unwilling to compromise his vision, Killjoy allowed Necrophagia to dissolve, but later resurrected the band when Pantera's Phil Anselmo offered to write a Necrophagia album.
Phil Anselmo's split with with Necrophagia was announced in 2002, and became the subject of much speculation. In later interviews Killjoy talked about how the scheduling conflicts had just proven to be too much, and in order to keep Necrophagia going, to keep writing and touring, it would have to be with a different line-up.
Their 2003 post-Anselmo album "The Divine Art of Torture" introduced Fug on guitar, Iscariah (ex-Immortal) on bass, and Mirai Kawashima (Sigh) on keyboards. These new members joined Frediablo (guitar), Titta Tani (drums), and voice of horror, Killjoy, to create the strongest line-up to date.
Now in 2005 with this same crushing line-up, Necrophagia gets ready to release "Harvest Ritual Vol. 1." Killjoy took the time during breaks while on a tight schedule finishing the recording in Florida to complete this email interview about the new album. I was able to squeeze in some other subjects as well.
Harvest Ritual Vol. 1 is finally coming after a long time in the making. You've always promised Necrophagia would continue to get sicker and more vile. Describe Harvest Ritual ..
KJ: Hell-o .. Harvest Vol. 1 is a very creepy, heavy and diverse record for us. It continues taking our base sound way further into realms of utter horror, and it's easily our best release thus far. The songs are all very catchy without losing the extreme metal roots which we will always have, but it's definitely a whole new side that will continue to be taken further with each release in the future. There's a really vile song called "Stitch Her Further" that Joey Jordison [Slipknot] co-wrote. It's just sick!!!
Rumor has it that Bill Mosely, who plays Chop Top in "Texas Chainsaw Massacre II" and Otis in Zombie's "House of 1000 Corpses" in involved. How has he contributed to this project?
KJ: Bill is a very good friend. I met him a few years back and we hit it off. He portrays a morbid schitzo Disc Jockey introducing one of the songs called "London (13 Demon Street)" and will also be in the video for the song as well. He's truly a very talented and great guy for sure.
Are there any elements of this new album that long time Necrophagia fans might be surprised by?
KJ: I think by now most know to expect the unexpected. We are audio horror - a horror/gore film in music medium. We follow no guidelines, no trends. There's a song called "Akumu" which means "Nightmare" in japanese, and it's kind of like a morbid nursery rhyme/song with a layer of clean vocals, which is a first for Necrophagia for sure .. ha ha... but all in all it's a very heavy, dark and creepy record for sure .. very unique.
What kind of bloody, violent horrors do you have planned for the stage show during the tour?
KJ: We're currently having the new stage props designed now for the "Harvesting the Dead" 2005-06 Tour. We've got a lot of sick and disturbing images, but I really don't wanna give too much away in advance. We wanna do things in a very sick, twisted and gory way without becoming a parody ala Gwar. So there is a fine line between horrific and overkill. But we know what we're doing and it's gonna be depraved for sure!!!
You've spent most of this year in the studio. Are you feeling claustrophobic? Are you excited about getting out on the road?
KJ: Yeah, it has been a very looong process. We've never spent 10 months recording before so it's just really insane at this point. But we're done and it was very much worth it. The sacrifice was not in vain. We've come up with something very unique, which is a rarity these days. We will never lose our roots, only expand upon them without ever losing the true heaviness and sickness which is the core of our sound.
How long a tour do you have planned and what areas will it cover?
KJ: We are still looking at different touring possibilities. We definitely wanna start in the USA this time so we are looking at that. We might tour with Danzig but nothing is certain. Hopefully within the next month things will be more clear and then I'll update you for sure.
At one time you had planned to make your debut feature film with the title "Harvest Ritual." Is this still in the works, and will it still be called Harvest Ritual?
KJ: Indeed that's still the plan. It's just been a matter of having enough time to do it properly. I need a year off which hasn't happened since the mid 90's. But when it happens it's gonna be the real deal. Nothing will touch this film. It's pure terror, evil and horror. A real throwback to films of the 70's!!!
You were also at one time working on authoring a review guide for obscure and rare horror films. How is this coming along?
KJ: The book has nearly been completed for many years. Again, it's a question of having time to do it properly. Joel McIver ["Extreme Metal" -2000 & "Extreme Metal II" -2005; "Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica" -2004;] has agreed to edit it, so that in itself is a big step towards getting it finished. Just need to update it a bit and hand it over to him.
You describe Necrophagia as the soundtrack from your worst nightmare. What is your worst nightmare? Does it involve eyeball violence, or do you enjoy that?
KJ: My worst nightmare is being burned, tortured, having acid poured on me, then being cut up while still alive .. a very hellish scene that makes for sure. Necrophagia is like listening to a nightmare instead of conjuring one up within your mind.
Do you ever still get spooked or experience fear while watching horror movies?
KJ: I miss the feeling of fright, dread and being scared. There will be things that can still make me jump a bit, but nothing that keeps the feeling going for too long. I really wish it were possible to experience that feeling for extended periods of time.
What makes Vampira superior to Elvira in your opinion?
KJ: Vampira was just sooo fukking amazing to watch: long fingernails, black hair, pale skin, and that thin waist. And she was just generally creepy at times with certain looks or ways she would move. Elvira really does nothing for me. Way too goofy.
Kiss' "Hotter than Hell" was the first album you ever bought. Were you influenced at all by Gene Simmons' blood vomiting?
KJ: Black Sabbath, Kiss and Alice Cooper all definitely had an influence on me when I was a child. Of course Simmons spitting blood and blowing fire, etc. must have had a major impact even if I'm not fully aware of it. I started getting into punk when I was twelve and stayed there until hearing Venom when they started. Venom had elements of punk but with a whole new twist. I was fukking hooked big time. And soon after, Necrophagia was created.
How did you first get introduced to absinthe and what's your favorite brand?
KJ: I started drinking absinthe in Europe a few years ago and haven't stopped .. ha ha .. My favorite is made by Absinthe America. I drink their stuff all the time. They have it down to an exact science.
Do you consider yourself to be "goth"?
KJ: I really don't fit into any category. I do what I feel like without thinking about it. If wearing black nail polish and make up is goth, then yeah, I'm goth. If it's listening to a certain type of music and walking around depressed, then no, I'm not. Goth is nothing like it was in the 70's with bands like Joy Division, Sisters of Mercy, etc. I still listen to Nick Cave a lot to this day. The man is a genius.
Do you play any gore video games... Resident Evil? Silent Hill?
KJ: Unfortunately not, although from what I've seen they can be quite amazing. I haven't learned how to play anything past Atari .. ha ha .. but the graphics, stories and music to these games are fukking great. Someday I'll sit down and mess with them.
What's going on with your label Baphomet Records these days?
KJ: Baphomet is going stronger than ever, got some great releases coming up. The new Nokturne disc is just fukking mind blowing .. so utterly raw and full of hate .. the best black metal stuff I've heard in years!!!
A lot of young kids consider themselves experts on the old Norwegian black metal scene because they've read that Vikernes was a true hero and say extremely rude and hateful things about Euronymous, which seem to be regurgitated inaccurate versions of Varg's unflattering comments about Euronymous in his LOC interview. When you see and hear things like this, are you able to shrug it off as ignorance, or do you have anything you want to say to them?
KJ: That's something I don't wanna talk about. I'm not here to educate these mindless kids that wanna believe he's some kind of hero. He took away the greatest black metal musician ever and one of my best friends. I miss Euronymous every day of my life, and I don't wanna give that guy any power by saying anything about him. To me he simply doesn't exist. He is nothing.
Lastly, I understand that you hate interviews, and so I really appreciate you allowing me to torture you. Why were you willing to do this for me? And will you be doing quite a few more to promote the new album?
KJ: I am just to the point of having really said everything I need to say. A new record does not change my ideals, thoughts or what the band is about. I worship Fulci, I'm a horror junkie, and I love creating horror on many different levels and mediums. I would rather create and have others find a meaning than to sit and explain it. Everything is the same even as it changes. It's a morbid evil-ution. I talked with you because you are a friend and you're ultra cool. I'm sure I'll have to do some interviews along the way this year but I'm hoping some of the other guys can do this stuff. Anyway .. thanxxx for your support. See you on tour soon .. Gore forever .. Fulci liiives ..

Blabbermouth (http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=41212) - Norwegian guitarist/vocalist Frediablo (NECROPHAGIA, GRIMFIST, GORELORD, HEMNUR) has issued the following statement:
"I have decided quit all my musical engagements except my role as singer in GRIMFIST. NECROPHAGIA, GORELORD, WURDULAK, CHAMBER OF STRENGTH etc... I'm done!! I desperately need to distance myself from a large portion of this scene in order to maintain any love at all for metal music. I either stop, or I work myself into a state of mental and physical misery. I will continue to raise hell in GRIMFIST, and will be seeing some of you fuckers on tour next year.
"Thanks to all the fans, press and people that have believed in me and supported me and my work over the years. You have my respect, and you all kick fucking ass!!"
