Biography

There are at least 6 bands with this name:

1) German krautrock group
2) German Thrash metal band
3) death metal band from Canada
4) psychedelic doom metal band from Brazil
5) death metalband from Japan
6) 80s synth-pop-wave/avantgarde band from the Netherlands

1) Necronomicon were formed in 1971 in Aachen, the Western part of Germany near the Belgium and Netherlands border.

With an album title (Tips zum Selbtsmord) that means “How to Commit Suicide,” Necronomicon’s one album, from 1972, featured bleak progressive garage rock with long instrumental passages. With wailing acid guitar solos, dark organ swirls, and angst-ridden singing in German, Necronomicon has created a dark and powerful vision that blends psychedelic and progressive music with a proto-punk garage band sensibility. They throw in some operatic vocals on several of the tracks; these are most effective in a couple places on “Requiem der Natur” to make the music sound almost like the Slovenian band Laibach. The same piece also offers an industrial droning beginning, some great walking bass soloing, bass and keyboard dueling, and a couple of melancholic folksy interludes. The title track combines proto-punk rhythmic energy with angry guitars and new wave-ish organ tones. The sound quality of this album is a bit rough, but that adds to the charm of the raw energy and despair of this underground Krautrock classic.

    El verdadero "Necronomicon" es el grupo alemán de los años 70, que hacía un rock progresivo pesado de la más alta calidad, auténtico grupo de culto, que pasará a la historia del rock y de la "cultura con mayúsculas". Ese es el único grupo que merece ocupar esta página de last fm, si se quiere ser justos con la verdad y con el mérito de cada uno. Pero si lo que se pretende es aprovecharse del buen nombre que otros han conseguido, si lo que se busca es convertir el rock en una mafia de mercenarios ansiosos de dinero y fama, entonces está muy bien que grupos posteriores se apoderen de este espacio, y que los seguidores de los verdaderos "Necronomicon" consulten la página Necronomicon (Ger) para ver fotos, discografía, etc. Preservemos, por favor, el mundo de la cultura de las garras infectas de ese neoliberalismo capitalista de corrupciones y embrutecimiento que se está apoderando de la sociedad. Gracias.

    TheHeretik is a blonde bimbo who pretends to be a dude and trolls last.fm in order to escape from her pathetic miserable life. Epic Fail
