Standing on the shoulders of metal giants such as Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Pentagram, Swedish trio Nekromant are well versed in the art of crushing riffs and powerful melodies, boasting a sound that echoes the might of the past with an eye cast toward the future. Forged between the two mountains near their home village of Vargön, the three-piece have been turning heads wherever they go with their authentic and effortlessly brilliant old school metal assault.
From a punishing percussive battery through to the Iommi-esque guitars, this power-trio understands that the riff is king. First formed under the moniker Serpent, the band released their debut album Nekromant in 2015 on Transubstans Records. In 2017 the band changed their name to Nekromant and released their sophomore effort Snakes and Liars (Transubstans) followed by The Nekromant Lives (Ripple Music) in 2018. In 2020 the band signed a deal with celebrated Swedish label Despotz Records and are set to release their fourth album entitled Temple Of Haal on December 3rd 2021, which marks a new chapter in the band’s musical evolution.
