Biography

Karlsruhe, Germany (1992 – present)

Necrophagist was founded in early 1992 in Karlsruhe, Germany to integrate the fury of grinding, fast death metal with technical music. In April 2008, Necrophagist announced that Romain Goulon would be joining the band as their new drummer, replacing Minnemann, who would still be working with Muhammed Suiçmez on a side project. The band is writing a new, yet untitled album. Muhammed Suiçmez stated that the band would be using seven-string guitars on the album. Muhammed Suiçmez himself will be recording with a new custom shop Ibanez Xiphos guitar consisting of 7 strings, as well as 27 frets.

Shortly after the band formed they entered the studio and recorded their first demo tape entitled ‘Requiems of Festered Gore.’ ‘Requiems of Festered Gore’ was never released to the masses as it was sent out solely for promotional reasons in an attempt to help the band secure gigs.

In 1995, Necrophagist re-entered the studio and recorded a self-titled, follow-up demo. The demo’s impact sent shock waves through the European underground death metal scene, which helped Necrophagist not only establish their gruesome name, but allowed the band to play numerous shows all over Europe. Soon Necrophagist was recognized as one of the leading bands in the growing underground progressive/technical death metal scene.

In 1999, NECROPHAGIST recorded their self-released, full-length debut ‘Onset of Putrefaction.’ Despite the limited number of copies that were made, ‘Onset of Putrefaction’ only solidified the growing reputation that NECROPHAGIST had started with their self-titled demo.

    The 2nd coming of Jesus Christ is a statistically more likely event than these guys releasing a new album.

    I waited for the new Necrophagist for so long that I gave up metal lol. Still waiting, though.

    We all know this is so impossible that even if it wasn't released on the 1st of April I would have thought it's a joke...

    I hope a third album is going to be released. Who knows, anything is possible in this universe we all live in. Perhaps they'll announce a new album tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. Amazingly, eleven years after the release of Epitaph... no followup and it has become the most anticipated death metal album in recent times They might turn out to be one of those bands who only have 2 albums only and they have 0 intentions on making new albums. In my opinion, they'd leave a better legacy with at least 3 albums, not 2 albums. We shall see!

    Well looks I'm back into this band. Now I have their 2nd demo (which I never listened to before) and it's incredible. I got Epitaph again. Still, I'm not into Onset.

    I was a big fan at one point, I used to listen to the 2nd album like crazy. I wasn't really into the first album due to the drum machine. Necrophagist influenced countless amount of bands that I love like Archspire, The Faceless, Alterbeast, etc. However, I'm not a huge fan of Necrophagist anyore. I love the first demo they dropped and I listen to that only nowadays. I will certainly give them another chance when they release their 3rd album (in this case it's a matter of if, not when at this point). I guess I prefer the bands they influenced more and I like 'em more. I thank Necrophagist for existing and influencing the amazing technical death metal bands of today. :)

    Teeny bopper metal, it's like chewing on bubble gum, after a few minutes it becomes utterly bland and useless.
