THE NECROMANCERS and their third album 'Where the Void Rose'. While their foundations lay on proto-doom and NWOBHM, the fire-driven foursome delivers an inspiring six-tracker that reveals new treasures upon each listening. Fantasy-inspired lyrics become nightmarish tales thanks to an unbeatable depth of songwriting and the breathtaking vocal range of newcomer Basile Chevalier-Coudrain. Enhanced by a massive production, the French deliver a masterclass of dark and melodic heavy, that fans of Iron Maiden, The Devil's Blood, Graveyard, Grand Magus or Orange Goblin should worship from the get-go.

Self-released on September 16th (vinyl, CD and digital), it will be distributed by Season Of Mist in Europe and Ripple Music in North America. I'm happy to arrange interviews at any time, just drop me a line!

Signed on Ripple Music, THE NECROMANCERS’ debut album 'Servants Of The Salem Girl' (2017) established the band as one of the must-hear acts on the European heavy rock scene. Drawing their inspirations from mythology, religion, European fantasy literature, and a common obsession for classic horror cinema, THE NECROMANCERS are a strange beast to behold. Blending progressive rock, heavy psych and the 70s proto-metal sound of Black Sabbath or Coven, they inject a healthy dose of NWOBHM power, all doused in lysergic illusions. Among several European tours, the band made an impression at Desertfest Berlin and London, Keep It Low, Up in Smoke, with a culmination at France's Hellfest in 2019. After one last tour with Belzebong, the band rushed back to the studio to write and record their third album with their new vocalist Basile Chevalier-Coudrain, for an early fall 2022 release.

First demos of "Where the Void Rose" were done in 2019 as THE NECROMANCERS just went back from touring. After the departure of their former vocalist, they recorded the album in June 2021 at Nomad Audio with Basile Chevalier-Coudrain, a longtime friend and founding member of the band Birdstone. "Where the Void Rose" tells the story of a decaying world, where some try to hold the horde back in the depths while others yearn to plunge into the abyss, exhilarated by the discovery of new knowledge and eager for answers in the face of the inevitable. THE NECROMANCERS once again prove their fascination for horror tales by feeding on the last breath of those doomed souls. They venture to the junction of the land and sea, confront the tumult of the ocean and explore the sunken ruins of our civilization, for what is their heaviest and darkest album yet.

It was recorded and mixed by Fabien Guilloteau at Nomad Audio, and mastered by Thibault Chaumont at Deviant Lab. The artwork was created by Vaderetro. The album will be available in limited 'Ink & Salt' vinyl edition, classic black vinyl, CD, digital, and distributed by Season Of Mist (Europe) and Ripple Music (USA).
