Nekromant - The Nekromant Lives (CD)
Catalog number: RIPCD100
Hailing from the Swedish city of Vänersborg, the band – formerly known as Serpent – are renowned for delivering a raw, gritty and direct assault, cast in the fires and a dedicated melting pot of metallic inspirations which include Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Texan rockers, The Sword.
Following the release of their self-titled album in late 2015 on Transubstans Records, the band played extensively both home and abroad at large shows such as Sweden Rock Festival and toured with fellow Swedes, Cities of Mars. Their album Nekromant (released under the band’s original name) received unanimous praise by critics and fans alike and led to a very successful start in 2016 for the trio. Having caught the attention of American underground giants Ripple Music, who immediately fell in love with the way the band wore their influences proudly on their sleeves, with the dark and heavy majesty of Snakes & Liars (2017) Nekromant undoubtedly carried a torch for old-school metal.
