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 reason that Necrophagist have been put on hold is that Muhammad is one of the guitarists for Ghost now.

    @DxWxTx You're so fuckin stupid, man it's really unbelievable. HOw did you actually achieve this level of obliviousness? Muhammed gets compared to Chuck all the time, ever wonder why? I love Nile but never ever will write something half as good as Necrophagist. Decapitated's Carnival is Forever is better than Epitaph or Onset of Putrefaction? AAAAAAAAND: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH VADER HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHH you're making a joke outta yourself. Muhammed is one of the best musicians to ever live, right up there with Chuck and Sebastian Bach.

    Oh, and the fact that a band is "technical" and "ground-breaking" (which I highly doubt; Black Veil Brides is more technical than these jokers) does not exempt them from criticism.
